As the owner of many different equines I have lots of hair to clip… from neat Thoroughbred Ears to the world’s shaggiest miniatures. I’ve been an Oster girl since I was old enough to cut clippers on and scalp my poor draft horse. Nobody told me you were supposed to keep the feathers… I own a few pairs of clippers, the ever industrial (and heavy!) Oster ClipMaster Body Clippers, the Oster Turbo 2 speed and the tiny oster touch up clippers. Well after years of abuse, proper clipper service and repeated abuse my Oster Turbo’s finally kicked the bucket. They still work but they would get hot and clip inconsistently, now that i’m being paid to clip other people’s horses that’s not really acceptable!
Now that I own miniatures I have learned that “hell hath no fury [on clippers] like a miniature” Those things in winter look like Yaks! My sweet refined boy named “Prince Charming” or PC is now affectionately called “Pork Chop” because he’s SO hairy that he looks obese! When my clippers died and it was time to take the financial step and buy good clippers I did my research. The Miniature horse community (Specifically Brooke The Clipper Girl) Rave about the Andis ProClip Excel 5 Speed Clippers. And not just praise them for detail work… but use them for the ENTIRE body clip! I was in serious disbelief! Brooke even claimed to clip 28 in one pair of blades!!! I decided to get brave and step onto the Andis Bandwagon.
So I stepped up, paid my $200 and took my little box home.
Andis ProClip Excel 5-Speed Clippers
And attempted to convince my yearling that it’s time for his first big boy shave…
Two very hairy boys!
Pork Chop Slowly Becoming Prince Charming again!
The Results were fantastic! These clippers run cool, are lightweight, very easy to cut with and relatively quiet. They run in 5 speeds of which I used speed 5 for the body and 3 for the little ears and places where we are extra nervous. I was extremely pleased that I did clip both boys on one blade and have plenty of life to go in it.
Huckleberry’s after shot!
I highly suggest the Andis ProClip Excel 5-Speed Clippers for your leg shaving, face clipping and even body clipping needs!
