Baby's First Clip

Zoebird is a lady from the cold, snowy north.
horse hats for a reason
I live in the desert.
you can't tell on account of how DST sucks

We're having some warm weather even by "high mountain desert" standards, which means nice rides get cut short because a certain bold, curvy lady is #Zoedying in the heat.
Y R SO HOT MOM
I have been LOVING this winter in terms of having a legit horse who just wants to horse and not wear blankets and be babied. But also. Let's not get heatstroke here. It's January after all.
is it really reusing a photo if it's still cute?
This weekend, I finally busted out the big clippers.
MOM R REAL CRZY 4 REAL
And went to town.

It's not the prettiest clip job I've ever done.

But.

My baby mare who had never seen big clippers before in her life was like MOM U CRAZY BUT HOKAY and stood there like a total champion. She was a bit bored/twitchy by the time I got to her butt, so hopefully we'll attack that another day.

I'm hoping as we get back to work this week, she'll be a lot more comfortable. The other obvious plus side is that now she gets to look completely adorable in a blanket.
I dunno why other horses look so boring in blankets but ZB is super extra adorable.

  2. But she would look even cuter if you bought her a penguin blanket. Just saying.

  4. I really want to steal your saddle pad but since it looks normal on ZB it would probably serve as a cooler for Stinker 😂

  5. i love her clip. And i was mad at myself for clipping Remus and then it went subarctic but he has survived with his 100 gram blankets and now is back in his sheet. They just look adorable clipping (not that she wasnt adorable before :) HA

  6. I like that shape for the clip. I'm always so boring with my super traditional clips.

    1. My attention span isn’t long enough for straight lines. Curves are much more forgiving.

  9. I was wondering, for a moment, about that very creative flank clip. But then I was like OH YEAH BABY HORSZE. I cannot believe she wears such a humongous blanket!

    1. THERE IS A PLAN

      But between the baby horse thing and the working ammy thing, god only knows if it will come to fruition.
