-wait a day or 2.
-Clip with a blade that is shorter. (This will help because you are making the all-around length shorter.
-Last but not least. Maybe offer to teach her how to do it next time. She just wants to learn all around horsemanship!
She clipped him last week, and since then we have clipped 4-5 other horses that will be going to the show as well. She very much understands the importance of sharp blades and clean ponies now.
Since so much time has elapsed (it will be a full 20 something days from teh date of clip to the horse show) should I just let it be? Its buzzed pretty short, and I don't want to scalp the guy! I will post pictures when I get some, so that you all can see what I mean. I'm hoping when he comes out for his lesson this weekend he looks better than he did yesterday, because oh my golly, I was quite surprised when I took off his blanket!
Brought back some memories of me about 10 yrs old. Small pony, still pretty fuzzy in the spring and I was told to clip his bridle path, whiskers and ears. I did everything perfect except I clipped the outside of his ears too...He pretty much looked like a Donkey on horseshow day.
