Well you made me laugh, because when you described the partial clips, then put your son's haircut right in there, I created this visual of a poor boy with a horse mother's clippers clipping him out like a horse's partial clip. Poor boy.
Airborne? Oh. Yes, he can take a joke. Once. After that, the joke's on you.
luckily my son looks after himself - We only have two boys that need sheath cleaning and it is never a chore - since my gelding drops everytime after a work out so he gets regular cleaning and my 2 yr old stud colt always drops when he is being groomed - I must have a "Special Touch".
This is a public service announcement. In a press release today, the National Institute of Health has announced the discovery of a potentially dangerous substance in the hair of horses.
This substance, called "amobacter equuii" has been linked with the following symptoms in female humans:
Reluctance to cook
Reluctance to perform housework
Reluctance to wear anything but boots
Forgets keeping in contact with family & friends
Reluctance to work except in support of a horse
Physical craving for contact with horses (may be an addiction)
Beware! If you come in contact with a female human infected by this substance, be prepared to talk about horses for hours on end.
Surgeon General's Warning: Horses are expensive, addictive, and may impair the ability to use common sense!
Thanks rodawn, I knew there had to be an explanation!
OP, it must be the time of year or I'm just thinking along the same lines, because clipping was the first thing I thought of when I saw the title of this thread. It's about the least favorite horse chore I do!
