    Clipping Dapple Greys

    How long should you wait before you clip dapple greys before a show? and what size of blade would you use on the body? I have used the 10blade but I find I want a sleaker look so should I clip with a 15 or a 40. I am assuming the 40 may be to short but I have heard people using the 40 on the...

    Does anyone own a Bengal cat? We are thinking of getting one and would like to hear some opinions on the breed. They do seem to be very nice and are more like a dog then cat. Anyway I thought I would ask. Thanks Nicole

    Shipping boots

    Well he is off and I did not use them. He is not used to them to begin with and they are cheaper shipping boots, so they would problaby fall off anyway. The trailer was very well padded and the stalls went right to the floor. I am sure he would be better without them anyway, he is a very...

    Horse conformation discussion

    Conformation is conformation no matter if you have a arab or quater horse style. I have seen both types and lots that are just beautiful. I have also seen some that are very refined not because they are built that way but because they are so darn skinny and really took away from the looks of...

    Have a question reguarding my 4 year old gelding

    Does he waddle? It may be his stifles or he may be sore somewhere. I would have the vet look at him first but as far as exercise goes work him slow!!! I would work him slow, 20min a day gradually increase the workload but not over 20mins. Lots of groundwork and drive him every other day. Do...

    Dying black horses

    You are absolutly right "backwoodsnanny" I may just take him anyway and enjoy the day. He is not that bad and its not an AMHR show. So we are going for fun and that's what is important.

    Dying black horses

    Thanks so much guys for all your help. And yes I am sure you are reading this thinking what an idiot. : I guess sometimes I don't think, and I was really not thinking about his skin and what that might do to him. I know now and I will never put a horse through that again. Nicole

    Dying black horses

    I really don't care about the show, I am not taking him. But I am worried about him and his skin. I guess if I would've just bathed him he probably would've been fine and I was only going to do his mane and tail but thought I could do his body to make him really black. : Live and learn...

    Dying black horses

    O.K I am confused because I did not change the coat color, he is black but because I clipped him the coat was dull. I was also told that you can dye the body as long as you are dying the same colour????All I did was enhanced the colour. About his skin is there anything I can do to help his...
