Advice on going from a 3mo old trace clip to full body clip? Also color enhancement
It's about a week and a half until the show... and that trace clip just isn't going anywhere! So I need advice (and encouragement!) on going from a trace clip to a full body clip (trace clip not appropriate - Morgan show).
So PLEASE give me all your best tips and advice! I've got the following:
-Take my time
-Long, even strokes
-Clip against direction of growth
-Have spare blades
I've read about clipping wet, but I just don't think I'm game for that. I also heard tell of a baby oil rinse afterward? Please explain. :yes:
I'm borrowing a friend's Oster variable speed Clipmaster and I have Wahl adjustable stable clippers of my own...
This is made trickier by the fact that the horse is not really a pretty color underneath, so I need any and all suggestions to make her shiny and dark again! I am doing the following to help with that:
-Grand Hoof Pellets w/ MSM
-Flysheet w/ neck cover
-Mesh Slinky-type hood/shoulder cover
I also have Shapley's Equi-Tone (black), Oster Black Pearl, Rio-Vista Hi-Black Burgundy, and maybe Gallop (black) at my disposal. I read something about hair dye mixed with Showsheen... and something about sponging dye all over the horse...
