Lose 20 pounds overnight with this one simple trick!

Brego got body clipped yesterday. Poor guy was overdue, and with temps in the low 80s he was just standing around sweating.

Significantly more svelte... at least, for a Brego. However, I don't think his mouse-brown winter coat is nearly as attractive as his glossy black summer coat. And most of his dapples have disappeared with the clip. :(

I did a full body clip for the first time ever (usually we do a hunt clip). I had no idea that he actually had LEGS under all that hair!

Paddy stood by the gate the entire time and commiserated.

The hair was so deep in places it was up over his feet.

So, if your Brego needs to lose 20 pounds ASAP, clip him. And uh, anybody got any suggestions on what to do with 20 pounds of Brego hair?

  1. I love clipped horses :-)

    Use the hair as stuffing for a pillow?

    1. He's a very SHINY mousey brown color. Hopefully the black will come in soon!

    1. I'd need a flock of bald eagles to use up all that hair. SO MUCH HAIR.

  5. Seriously with the hair. I shaved Nilla and there was a sheep's worth of hair. Can't wait to see him grow back in black.

    1. Well, he looks better in black - and we all know that black is slimming, right?

    1. The lack of inches of hair definitely helps!
