I just body clipped my horse for the first time and he looks great but I'm having a little issue with certain areas. I used a 10 on his body but I'm not sure what to use around his eyes and muzzle; I have a 40 but I think that's way too short. What size blade do you use on those areas? And do you have a hard time blending the hair that was cut with 10's and the hair cut with the shorter blade? Thanks!
I use 10 blades for everything, including face/eyes/muzzle. For the eyes you just have to blend carefully, you don't have to clip right up to the eyelid. I think you'll find the 40's will be too short and it would be hard to blend with the rest of him.
I also use 10's everywhere. I've used 40's on the face before but find it's really hard to blend that way. The one time I used 40's on the face and 10's on the body I got 30's to help blend and it turned out okay.
