Clipping
« on: February 19, 2023, 02:52:29 pm »
Vets instructions I have to clip my sons 13.2mg pony every winter.
He needs clipping tomorrow. Iíve never clipped a horse. Dogs yea sheep yes goats yes even the cat. Never the ponies as Iíve never needed too!
Iím buying new blades and oil tomorrow (I clipped the sheep last summer as I couldnít get a shearer for 4 ewes. Needs must at the end of the day!)
Iím buying proper sheep shearing clippers this year to do my gang.

Can anyone give me pointers on clipping everywhere. Legs the lot.
Poor pony is over heating and generally miserable.
Doesnít help heís my sons pony and my sons injured so stuck at home (been nearly a week stuck at home now).
His pony is also depressed (vets diagnosis!)
My son staggered to see him for a few mins this afternoon.
He wonít be seeing him again for a few days

I suggest you look it up on the internet - "How to clip a pony". All information is there!
