I’m a big fan of trace clipping my horses. Freedom gets very excited when we are out hunting. He can work up quite a lather and I’m afraid that he’ll get chilled as he cools down. The trace clip is just about ideal: it takes off enough “fur” to keep him cool but leaves enough of his coat to keep him from getting too cold.
Freedom is very good about clipping. He stands like a statue even when I clip him outside. Just as well as I’m not all that good at it. I’m just glad you can’t see both sides at the same time!
I get a lot of questions from passersby after I clip. People always want to know why my horse is two colors. I tell them they are his racing stripes.
One thought on “Freedom gets his racing stripes.”
super snazzy at the hip.
my clips always looked as if Edward Scissorhands had gotten into the sherry before going at it.
