Shave and a haircut 2 bits and vote update


Good day everyone!!! I am well on my way to getting sweet treats. I appreciate all of the help...keep voting and by tomorrow I will win!
I have to do a bit of bragging about my new haircut. The DOR brought out the clippers, I have never been clipped before. I have had a scissor cut bridle path, but the DOR told me that all well broke horses can be clipped with clippers. Now I am a well broke horse, okay there are still a few glitches, but I want to show the DOR
that I am getting better everyday. So the DOR turns on the clippers and my eyes want to come out of my head, I tell them to stay put and stand as still as I can while the clippers are in the air buzzing. The DOR moves them closer a bit at a time, I hold my breath and stand still. When I drop my head she turns them off, good I am training her to shut off the buzzing and it isn't taking as long a it normally does to teach her this. She turns the clippers on again and rubs the handle on my neck, I stand and drop my head-the clippers turn off. Next they are buzzing by my ears...okay my head goes up and I back up a bit, who wants a giant buzzing thing around their ears. The buzzing continues, I drop my head and the DOR turns it off. HMMMM I am thinking if I just keep my head down the clippers will stay off. So my head is down and on comes the clippers, what the heck? I am thinking she didn't notice my head was down, so I drop it more...now the clippers are on my neck. Okay the DOR has obviously forgot the lesson of "Jack drops his head and DOR turns off the clippers" so I put my nose on the ground. Well the DOR took advantage of this position to run the clippers on my mane where my bridle path is, it tickled a bit. She turned off the clippers and I gave her a nuzzle. The DOR gave me scritches and told me what a great guy I am. Last summer I would have fired up my rocket boosters and launch to the moom...no way would I have been so calm about this. She turned the clippers on again, I dropped my head and she did some more clipping. I stood still and when she was done I got more scritches. This is going to be a good thing! I just have to figure out how to get the bridle path to grow in over night so we can d this every evening.
I think I look a bit angelic with the halo over my new haircut.
Enjoy your day and don't forget to hug your DOR

Haircut looks great. I wish my Poco's mane grew back like yours does. Although I have cut a huge swath like yours, his mane grows forward, so I'm still having to pull hair out of the way for a halter or bridle.

Lookin' good, Jack!

Chew it slowly. Sometimes it makes a DOR feel sorry for you and GIVE YOU ANOTHER ONE!!!

Chew? You're supposed to chew 'em?
