|ALL THE HAIR|
Then the weather warmed up from 20f to 40f, ice turned into wet, and I had to chip dried mud off the most sensitive princess horse before a ride. Do you know how many times you can do that in a winter?
So I busted out the big clippers, told C he'd have to learn to deal, and went to town.
Despite my better efforts, we ran out of daylight after I did about 1.25 sides of him. It's really quite impossible to clip in the dark with no good lights and no real crossties. Sigh.
|his opinions of my ideas|
I went with a full clip minus head and legs (again) (even though I HATE fuzzy heads) because while Courage is in hard enough work to justify taking all the hair off and I do have the blankets to support this plan of action (on two horses, even!), it just doesn't make sense to strip him totally bald.
Mostly because I did his legs one time and it cause us both to fly into a murderous rage. And while I can clip his ears, they pretty much have the same effect. And if you clip the head and not the ears, that's just gross. Of course, not clipping the head is gross too...
And then while doing some research this winter, I discovered that someone had stolen pictures off my blog of him and put them on pinterest.
An OTTB wears a Clydesdale costume and the thing you notice is the rather-subdued clip? #lifefail there photo-stealing Pinterest weirdo.
Then earlier this year I did hearts because I'm not cool enough to freehand stars on an impulse clip. Little girls loved it, but it wasn't quite my thing. I may be all about the glitter, but hearts? Meh.
SO I DID THIS:
Ahem. For those of you less-nerds out there (you're reading a niche blog, so non-nerd isn't an option unless you're my mother), that's the Marvel Avengers logo. Best Franchise.
Makes me smile.
|I think he likes it too|
That's clip #2 in the books for this winter. I am loving the lack of long hair. Lil bit less loving realizing that most of his neck thickness was hair, but ah well. Can't deny he's looking damn good.
Like a super hero. (cough if said hero was super gay and rocked the bling).
