Paddy's winter clip (we bathed him just before clipping, which is why he's wet).
Alas, it's consistently in the upper 70s-low 80s during the days now, and poor Paddy is just cooking in the shag rug he's sporting. Last night I finally gave in and body clipped him. I know, I know, it's April, and I've probably ruined his summer coat. I have NEVER clipped a horse this late, but I think he would have finished shedding out sometime in July, so this seemed like a reasonable alternative.
The problem with clipping a relatively light-colored horse who's had a partial clip all winter? Tan lines! BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
Ignore my crappy clipping job and focus on the dual-colored Haffie. Snicker...
Paddington is diligently sunning himself to try to even out his tan lines. He's told me not to laugh at the unevenness too much because... well, see below:
The dangers of wearing gloves and pushing up your long-sleeved shirt sleeves when you ride. I guess we match now?
