Round Two Complete

A couple of days ago we finished up our second wave of body clipping. We started round two a few weeks ago so we will probably only get a break of 2 or 3 weeks before it is time for round three. Occasionally we have a horse that needs a 4th clip but that's pretty rare. In round one we did 21 body clips, and in round two we did 11 body clips. 32 body clips and counting for the season adds up to a lot of hair!

Sebastian clearly had things he wanted to do other than have a bath

Sebastian was anxious to return to his pasture after his clip

Cuffie after his second clip; clearly we starved him during clipping as he could NOT lift his head to have a picture taken

Bruno kept an eye on me while I was clipping him

since he was out of his pasture for a couple of hours Cino and friends had to immediately sniff noses and squeal a few times to make sure they still knew each other
