Happy Birthday to Joan Potter. Her birthday is February 3rd. I am sure she isn’t our only February birthday, but she is the only one who put it on our membership information. As a special birthday favor to Joan, she isn’t writing a President’s Mes- sage this month, which she hates with a passion and will do anything to get out of it. Nonetheless, she wanted to make sure she added her thanks to Bobbi Gutman for hosting our schooling show this past month and to all the club members who helped out, especially Tracy Schla- bach and Diane Proffitt, the co-managers.

At some stage of horse ownership, you will need to clip your horse. The key to having a horse that is easy to clip is to break the process into the following steps, teaching the horse that the noise and the feel of the vibrating clippers is not going to hurt him. First, rub your hand all over your horse’s face and ears. Get your horse to accept your hands on his face, muzzle, ears and around his eyes– desensitizing him to your hands moving around his head. Once you have accomplished this step COMPLETELY, take the clippers in your hand – turned OFF – and get him used to having the clippers around. Let him smell the clippers, then rub them over his face and wave them around his eyes and ears. Make sure that he will tolerate the feeling of the clippers on all parts of his face, eyes and ears – especially inside the ears. This may take working with your horse for a couple days before he completely relaxes. Make sure that the horse is showing no resistance to this step before you move on. Remove the blade and turn the clippers on to let the horse get used to the noise. Without touch- ing him, wave the clippers around the end of his nose, his eyes and his ears. Once he relaxes, turn the clippers off and pat him. Repeat this several times: every time the horse relaxes and low- ers his head, turn the clippers off and pat him. You are not trying to touch him right now with the clippers– all you are doing is getting him to stand still with the clippers on and moving around his head. Pay particular attention to areas where reaction is high – this is usually around the ears. You might have to spend more time here. Initially, it might take a couple of minutes before he re- laxes his head when the clippers are near his ears. However, once he does, turn the clippers off. Repeat this procedure until there is little, if any, reaction from your horse. Once the horse accepts the clippers around his head while they are turned on but not touching him, it is time to rub them all over his face, nose, around his ears and on the poll. The horse may act frightened again, but this is normal. Just keep rubbing the clippers around until he begins to relax his head. As soon as he relaxes, turn the clippers off and pat him. In the beginning, you might want to work on one area of his head at the time. Start with the muzzle and work your way up. As he relaxes in each area, you can increase the places you are rubbing until you can rub them all over his head. Once your horse is comfortable with all of the previous steps, you are ready to begin clipping the hair on his face and ears. However, if you are still getting resistance from the horse to any of the steps up to this point, you will only make matters worse by proceeding. Again, don’t start with the ears. Start at the muzzle and work your way up – under the chin, up his face, around his eyes, in the bridle path and poll area. Then start to work on his ears. It is a good idea to do a little bit of clipping and then go back and rub the clippers over areas that you have already clipped. Actually clipping the hair is another new feeling, and the horse may react to the sensation. If he gets sus- picious or frightened, you can go back to the rubbing that he should already be used to. If you do a little bit each day, after a week or so you should be able to clip anywhere on his body with no resistance.
