    Default Had to do the dirty deed 4 times this weekend

    I knew you couldn't resist opening this thread.


    I am sick of hair - I clipped 4 of our horses this weekend and I feel like I am still eating it. 1 full clip and 3 partial clips.

    Also had to give my son a hair cut - oh will it ever end - Now just the colt and the filly for the royal but not for a few weeks yet.

    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".

    Hope I made you all smile today.

    I clipped my mare on Sunday. And I'm glad I don't have to worry about sheath-cleaning weekends LOL !

    I am clipping (trace) for the first time EVER in a couple weeks (there's not enough winter coat to justify it yet). I am TERRIFIED I'm going to mess it up!
    "I is Roxie!" yep.

    Ride on, ride on. All the bad things are gone.

    Urgent Notice: Potential Danger of Horse Hair

    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!
