For a few weeks now I have been thinking that it was time to give Galahad a haircut. Specifically his tail – it might not be very thick but it does get rather long.
It is not technically correct to trim native ponies but that has never stopped me clipping him. We don’t tend to show much anyway so it really doesn’t matter. Besides, when it rains as much as it has done this last week this is the sort of thing that happens.
It can’t be particularly pleasant!
I didn’t want to wash the whole tail but I did clean off the ends before I trimmed them – the mud wasn’t just wet it was cold too. Plus, clean hair is much better for the scissors!
Galahad looks much smarter now and I should think is more comfortable. I seem to have neglected to take a picture of the finished product though – I wanted the hair to dry first so we went for our ride and I forgot all about it. It was a lovely hack though, even if it was blowing a gale!
