Happy Haircut Day

With a future filled with sheep shearing,
I figured it was time to invest in a good set of clippers.

In the past, I have used dog clippers to clip canines and equines alike.
What I never realized, though, is how fast one can shear an animal
with a really good set of clippers.

Since warm weather is finally here,
clipping the equines has topped this week's "To Do" list.

In a matter of just a few minutes, Daphne and Chloe went from this...


to this...


and this...


Notice that both girls have retained their bangs...
after all, bangs are "in"!
(And they'll lose them when they shed out the rest of their winter coats.)


Daphne lost patience with the process before we were completely finished...
hence the furry neck and the fringed belly!
I think it was the fact that the new clipper sounds different than the old one.
Perhaps we'll finish the job later this week...
and perhaps not.

After all, as Hubbs always says...
you can get the donkeys to do anything they want to do!

So what type of clippers did you use? I have a mule who needs to be clipped and would like to invest in a good pair. I'd appreciate your sharing the maker & style of your clippers. Thank you!
