Went to go work on the approach and retreat training with someone holding my mare for me so I could be free to move (she’s a pocket pony and will try to follow me when tied, or if I try to move around her body holding the lead) and a nice long extension cord on my clippers. She pricked up when I turned them on, but I was able not only to clip her, but trim a bridle path, as well! She definitely thought what I was doing was interesting, but hardly moved or shivered her skin. I’ll continue to bring the clippers out on a regular basis so she continues to learn, but drama was 99.9% avoided. Thanks for the tip, Naturalpasture!
