The home stretch is finally in sight for the spring 2017 body clipping marathon. As of today 20 horses have been clipped. We’ve got one horse to go, one horse on the maybe list, and of course Sparky the donkey will be getting his second annual body clip. I am beyond ready to end the cycle of being covered in horse hair, putting my clothes directly into the washing machine, and attempting (sometimes in vain) to remove ALL the hair from me in a shower. We’ve been clipping for exactly two weeks now so we’ve made excellent progress.
