    Huh?

    Smartpak has had a 10% off orders of $150+ from Black Friday through today...OP wanted to take advantage of the sale but doesn't get paid until Friday to place (and pay for) the order. Smartpak is awesome in that they may still give her the discount later when they can process her payment if she contacts them and asks now.

    Default Contact Oster

    Contact Oster anyway. I had an old old pair of clippers that my family bought used in the 1960s. I used them for years and then they died I would say about 3 years ago. I called them and they said to send them to them but the parts were not available any longer - no wonder they were like 40+ years old. They sold me a reconditioned pair for almost nothing.

    It never hurts to ask.

    finish him up with a pair of A5's or something similar, it will just take a bit longer but as long as he is clean and doesn't have steelwool hair it will be fine

    Ok I added photos to the original post... (I can't help it, I love this horse, he just makes me smile.)

    I found the old clippers today and the seem to be running fine. But I won't know for sure until I try to clip tomorrow night...

    Your horse is super cute! Bummer about your clippers but hopefully your old ones will pull through so you can finish him up

    If you buy a new pair, DON'T go with another pair of osters. I clip professionally and after 3 years of using my Andis Super 2 speeds, (they come in maroon) I finally broke down and bought a new pair. I had clipped probably up to 50 horses with my old Andis' and would never trust anything else!
    Your horse is super cute with gorgeous dapples on the clipped side

    I had the head that shifts the clipper blades break after I bought a new pair of clippers - the same ones - the screw was too tight. I now have an extra head - bought two sets when the head broke - make sure you keep everything well lubed and clean the blades often. I have an extra set of blades too - change the blades half way through every clip.

    Skydy and Vxf111 I tried to put them in my photobucket account but for some reason it wouldn't let me... I will try again... In the mean time...

    The saga continues...
    I found my old set of clippers and put the new blades on them. The were clipping fairly well when I got about 1/3 of him done (Did his barrel and just did the first few swipes on his butt). When he picks up his hind foot and slams it toe down right on the cord. It sparks and the clippers go dead. I yell for my friend to quickly unplug them, then get them out from under his foot. Yup, he basically cut straight through the cord! Lucky he didn't get shocked or worse.

    So I pulled out my A5's and found I had bought a pair of the wide blades for it, incase of emergencies. Lucky for me! And finished him up with those. Not great, but they did the job.Took forever though... LOL

    Reclipping a mare I had the night before a show, she gave on heck of a kick and the clippers flew out of my hand and smashed into eight million pieces against the stall wall. I had to go way old school and break out scissors for the last little bit, thank goodness she was gray and it blended okay.

    Cool

    Lovely horse and great clip job. Very sorry about the clippers. Lots of good advice. My additional advice: Eat those chocolate chip cookies I see in the other pic.... You'll feel better!
