I got Breezy all trimmed and cleaned up today. He is my most difficult horse to trim. He doesn’t mind his face or ears, but whatever you do DONT TOUCH HIS LEGS! He has never liked his legs touched. Ever. And I’ve had him since 3.5 months old. Oh well, I guess there are worse things LOL So he got a little “happy gel” otherwise know as DGel. It really helped him relax and I no longer have a poodle! Woohoo! He is ready for his show this upcoming weekend. 💕💕

Now all I have left is Thunder, but I will wait till the nights get a little warmer for him.

I just saw this thread. Of course I made my own last night 🤦🏻‍♀️.

First is my 4 month old filly. She’s a tiny girl. Her full brother is maturing at just about 28” and she’s even smaller than he was.

Second is my 3 year old show filly.Just started conditioning her.

Third is my 10 year old breeding stallion. He’s in 100% pasture condition

Last was one of my favorite transformations last year… yearling colt in pasture condition. Full brother to the first filly.

I’ve done 3 more but no before and after a…3 more to go lol.

All of your horses are looking sharp and gorgeous!

We still have pretty chilly nights (around 30) and snow showers so my little gang is still looking wooly along with an added touch of mud just to switch things up!

If any of you ever feel badly about your clipping let me know and I will send a photo from our barn….you’ll immediately feel so much better! 🤣

What a handsome boy!! ♥ Love his blue eye ♥
Thank you everyone! @Kelly There are 2 of those blue eyes! Well 1.5. That horse is a character!
Obviously no one is in perfect shape yet, but that's why I'm clipping. Need to see what is under that hair and it's been in the 80's here!
I do love how soft and shiny he is though. You can see it in the cell phone picture!

No clipping here yet either. Maybe after the nip this weekend. Spring is so unpredictable.

Hehehe. I outsmarted Cappy. The vet was out for coggins tests and sheath cleaning. Cappy had some happy juice and after the vet left I whipped out my trusty clippers and did his entire face 😁. The rest of him gets sheared on Sunday. The "rest of him" is easy.

I clipped Dapper Dan yesterday. Nights have been nippy so I put it off. My sister came over with her clippers to help me finish him off. I could tell he felt really weird about having no hair. I put the fly sheet on him and I think he was happier. I had been a little worried about his weight, but I think he looks fine. before clip.jpglegs.jpghair.jpgcorral clip.jpg

I imagine they do feel weird at first. I had a miniature horse and a dog that changed how they interacted with the world after they were clipped. The mini quit walking through electric fences (I don't think he could feel it at all he was so wooly) and the dog quit being a bully to her companions. Has anyone else ever noticed a change in behavior?

It’s official, Thunder is a poodle! I started clipping him today and will finish him up later this week. I swear the smaller the horse the more hair they have! Thunders belly was like trying to clip through pure cotton!

I assure you Thunder didn’t loose any weight over winter 🤣🤣🤣
