I wanted to clip Stella, she's so very hairy and out of shape and she gets soaking wet after 10 minutes on the lunge line. I decided to do an Irish clip to target the affected areas without taking too much hair off.
Stella wasn't terribly cooperative. She hasn't been getting turned out for several reasons, and I very highly doubt she has ever been body clipped before. So, I have an excuse.
Here are a couple examples of nice Irish clips. I like to leave the head unclipped because I'm not concerned about having a neat head in the winter.
Sadly, Stella now looks like this
Sigh. She hates me.
