Today was a banner day, because I gritted my teeth and clipped a horse for the first time in three years! I only did Ringo (Kiki is slated for Friday) and I was pretty nervous, but it actually went fine. It only took an hour and a half (as opposed to the three hours I was fearing) and, while there definitely are some tracks, they could be a lot worse.

(Not Dually-levels of fuzziness, for sure, but still impressive!)
(Rachel holding Ringo to show off his new 'do - this picture totally does not do justice how much better his topline has gotten. But look! No more ribs! And he's starting to develop a butt! Progress)
I'm set to clip a school horse each on Tuesday and Thursday, and then Kiki on Friday. Looks like I'm going to have a lot of hairy laundry to do on Friday night...
