Even More Clipping

This week we’ve been busy clipping horses every day. Some of the poor souls being forced to endure a bath and clipping are getting their third body clip of the season while some were getting their second clips. I always joke and say that clipping days in particular are bad days in the eyes of the horses. They get pulled away from their friends for an extended period of time between the bath, some drying time, and then being clipped. I have decided that the horse conversations on clipping days go something like this:

Horse being bathed and clipped: “Do you know what I just had to endure?”

Horse not being clipped: “No, what’s up dude?”

Horse being clipped: “I had a bath and then they clipped me!”

Horse not being clipped: “Wow, that sounds really bad. I think you should call your mom and let her know.”

Horse being clipped:  “You’re right! My mom needs to know the care is terrible at this place!”

Good care is such a cross to bear when you are retired.

Cuffie and Norman getting pre-clip baths; Cuffie in paricular did not appreciate the bath or the clipping and maintained his grumpy pony expression for all of it. Norman and Cuffie were both getting their third clips of the season.

Lily having her *second* pre-clip bath. She didn’t just find dirt to roll in, she found mud, and she completely coated herself in it. Lily detests being bathed, so it wasn’t the best choice on her part.

Maisie is always fun to clip. Not only does she have perfect manners, her coat is so slick and shiny you get a perfect clip. This was Maisie’s third clip.

Lily after her clip. Despite her second bath and being clipped you can still see a big brown spot on her belly. This was Lily’s third clip.
