Mercy's First Ever 'Hair Cut'

Well, I've gone n done it again. I am not often very spontaneous, but on Wednesday I had had enough of Mercy's mane. I shaved a short bridle path (since her ears are so long I decided not to do the 'lay the ear back to mark how long to cut it' thing) and cleaned up her muzzle. I always have a hell of a time getting her bottom lip. It is just so sensitive. She has gotten really good at either sucking in her lips or pursing her lower lip and chin together so that I can not get the hairs in the groove created. *sigh* Oh well, I'm not showing her, yet...

She stood awesome for me to shave the bridle path. I knew she would, but you never really know how they will act once they feel the vibrations on their head. What a good girl! Next mane adventure- banding! ;)

Mercy looks good with a hair cut!
My Paint Fritzy is ticklish on her lower lip too, so while I am clipping her muzzle, she moves her lips all over. It can make it difficult to get a good clip job done!
