We are clipping a yearling colt to be shown for the first time. We have clipped him once before but didn't get around the ears good. It was okay then because it was just a schooling show. Hubby has been clipping him for about 6 hours now. He gets some short breaks inbetween. We finally got the feet done, but the face and ears seem to be a big problem! He is fighting so much that I am afraid he will hurt himself or we may hurt him with the clippers. I said let him go for the day and finish up after work tomorrow. Hubby is a perfectionist and says he will get it done tonight. Does anybody have any helpfull advise on how to get them to calm down?I can't hold him. He is tied but jerks around, rears up and just basicly thrashes around. HELP!
