We caught one of the, likely, last summer days this year. sunny, windless, about 70 degrees. We were able to bathe all three hunt horses, let them dry and then body clip them.
Good news - my 'new' heavy duty Sunbeam clippers ($300 new, $80 for me off Ebay) worked BEAUTIFULLY, Three horses body clipped in just over an hour. The little clippers (which are not designed for body clipping) would take over an hour PER HORSE.
Happy me!!! Filthy but happy!
Bad News - the 'blankets on, blankets off' daily chore starts tonight and goes until last spring
