Well you made me laugh, because when you described the partial clips, then put your son's haircut right in there, I created this visual of a poor boy with a horse mother's clippers clipping him out like a horse's partial clip. Poor boy.
Looks like we're gonna have to do some digging through the leafy pile of lies to reach the crunchy croutons of truth before we can put some Ranch flavored righteousness on this salad-LexinVa
luckily my son looks after himself - We only have two boys that need sheath cleaning and it is never a chore - since my gelding drops everytime after a work out so he gets regular cleaning and my 2 yr old stud colt always drops when he is being groomed - I must have a "Special Touch".
This is a public service announcement. In a press release today, the National Institute of Health has announced the discovery of a potentially dangerous substance in the hair of horses.
This substance, called "amobacter equuii" has been linked with the following symptoms in female humans:
Reluctance to cook
Reluctance to perform housework
Reluctance to wear anything but boots
Forgets keeping in contact with family & friends
Reluctance to work except in support of a horse
Physical craving for contact with horses (may be an addiction)
Beware! If you come in contact with a female human infected by this substance, be prepared to talk about horses for hours on end.
Surgeon General's Warning: Horses are expensive, addictive, and may impair the ability to use common sense!
Thanks rodawn, I knew there had to be an explanation!
OP, it must be the time of year or I'm just thinking along the same lines, because clipping was the first thing I thought of when I saw the title of this thread. It's about the least favorite horse chore I do!
