Clipping Begins

Cino had the honors of kicking off my annual body clipping marathon yesterday. Since I’ve never clipped him before I didn’t know what to expect. Actually, since he’s pretty perfect about most things I was expecting him to be polite and cooperative and that was exactly what I got. It was a nice way to start the body clipping extravaganza.


I almost made myself cry when I realized I had written down 18 horses on my clipping list. Basically all of the PPID/Cushing’s horses. Jason took note of my emotional state and I am most excited to now have some excellent help lined up to help with bathing, clipping and general grooming.


Today I clipped Gus. As I was scrubbing his tail with Quic Silver I started counting up in my head how many grey horses I was going to need to clip. I realized that I had 9 greys on my clip list, exactly half of the clippees. Good thing I bought a couple of gallon refills of the Quic Silver. I generally don’t use it on their bodies as I think it can be kind of harsh, but I do try to Quic Silver out at least some of the brown color from their tails.


When I’m not with the dentist, farrier or vet over the next 2 to 3 weeks you can find me bathing and clipping horses.

Are we done yet? Getting closer, Cino.
