The countdown begins!

Seven days and counting.
Seven days to turn this hairy brumbie into a show horse.

This is Bob in his paddock- he hasn't been clipped, his mane is long and his whiskers are still whiskery~
First things first. This is the hardest thing to do-obviously. Bob turns into a giraffe~
Then he wants to take the clippers away.

Lil Mama finally gets an ear, and swipes it quickly.
Then his legs get done.
I'll have more pictures of Bob when she is all done. It takes a day or two!

This crazy guy had his legs done yesterday, and since it was finally sunny today- and likely to rain in monsoon fashion the whole of next week- I opted to ride today.
I'll have pictures of his transformation as it goes along too.

Don't spend a lot of time on legs and tails. I think it's gonna rain.... yippee.

Amazing how they can transform into giraffes :). Looking forward to seeing him turn into the supermodel of the horse world. Also looking forward to seeing your buckle.

My all look like orphans here. It's part of the winter thing, don't you think?

I hate clipping..... especially ears. That's one part of show season I never miss.

Looking forward to following your travels in the show ring.
