So let's try a blog hop.
How are you clipping your horse this year? More or less than last year? Are you doing any fun designs?
Let's make this a bit more appealing, too. If you participate in this blog hop, please come back here and tell me you did so to enter to win a $10 gift card to the horse retailer of your choice!

Last year, Tristan got basically a light strip clip: down his throat and to his chest. It helped.
(Oh, and lest we forget, I finally got into the world of detail clipping and he rocked a Rebel Alliance insignia on his butt. I'm still insanely pleased with how that turned out.)
He needs more this year.
Because this happened after 35 minutes of dressage work.
I'm pondering an Irish clip. Not his face, because I do not have a death wish, but something that would expose more throat and more chest & stomach, possibly shoulder. No way am I doing a full body clip (he doesn't need it, I don't own the clippers for it, see above re death wish).
I am experiencing my usual seasonal anxiety about taking off too much hair, though. I have no idea what this winter will be like. He has all the blankets he needs, but what if? Ugh.
I also need to decide what to put on his butt.
Right now, I'm leaning toward making him the Flash or Captain America.
So: please tell me what you're doing so I can pick your brains and relieve some of my anxiety.
