Before you continue, images are big, and if your on dialup sit back, open a brewski, have some chips! . Well I got my clippers Wednesday, clipped two holsteins heads to see how it would go, the two I did were the easiest and did not bother from the clippers much. Amazing how shiny that black is on the B&W holsteins. Here is a pic, if you can make her out, of the one. It is not perfect, I was toying around, and was not after a good job. I didn't touch her up perfectly, and even though this was a test, and a look-see, she seems to like all that hair trimmed off. As a comparison, this was her before the trimming, well it's an older pic, but it makes them look spiffy. It is amazing how it brings that black and white out, next week im going to finish her off, even though she is shedding, and she will shed completely by June. It seems to feel good, we will see. Going to do a trim late June, was reading that it's a good idea to trim 60 days before the show to promote more hair growth. But here I was thinking trimming was hard, and it's actually easy, and enjoyable. Now this next one I went all out, excluding her head. I trimmed the crown a little, and found the two others I trimmed were easy, this one hated her head touched with that clipper. Before After If you notice stuff near her jaw, vet said it was some sort of infection, has to do with the wet weather we had, but it is clearing up, main reason why I didn't go all out on her head. Little playing with the topline hair, and BAM! she is set. Here is the last pic, up in the orchard. Curious what you think for a start evermoor? Used the oster blade for the body, and topline. Used a dirty hair blade on the B&W's legs, and under belly to remove manure. Discovered that under belly has some nice future milk veins, good potential under there, no lint .
