In May I had my annual spring clipping marathon. My total count for body clipping in May was 12 horses over a two week period. My arms were pretty tired by the end of those two weeks! All of the horses that I body clipped have PPID/Cushings, so it is no surprise that they were being slow to shed or not really shedding at all.
This week I had the opportunity to hang out with my clippers some more. I needed to re-clip Lily, Cuffie and Lightning. All three of them had grown back too much hair, and Cuffie had grown back a very complete winter coat over the last three months. I think they were all happy to be relieved of their extra hair. Only needing to clip three horses felt like a walk in the park after clipping twelve this spring.

Cuffie had a full winter coat again
Can we please be done now? This is so boring.
Cuffie and Lily wanted to skip the final picture, they were both looking towards their pasture . . .
