Farley: what are those in your hand?
Me: it’s either your hair or mine and you have the better bone structure to pull off the whole chopped look.
Farley: I’m pretty sure it’s fine. See? you barely even notice the knots from here. No need to feel guilty that they represent you ignoring me during the whole “vet school thing”.
Me: Hair grows back
Farley: No it doesn’t – have you seen the horses around here? I’m pretty sure it’s an outbreak (Farley is boarded at a polo barn).
Me: Think about how much cooler you will be! And no more braiding! Or me tugging at your mane!
Farley: OK. Fine.
Me: I forgot to leave a handle next to your wither. Oh well, I’ll just put it here.
Farley: I told you this was a HORRIBLE idea.
Me: I can totally fix this. Don’t worry.
Farley: No. Stop. Just Stop.
Me: You know what would fix this? Clipping your jaw line. Then you won’t look like a goat!!!!
Farley: Goat isn’t bad
Me: Ummmm……you are fourteen years not days and thus “goat” looks a little bit more like this:
Farley: Mmmm….you have a point.
Farley: Are you done yet?
Me: just a little more…..
Farley: I think it’s time to stop. This is now way out of control and I will point out that you are no where near my mane anymore.
Me: just a little more…….
Farley: I’m done. I’m really really done.
Me: Fine. Ready to see yourself?
Farley: NOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!! What have you done!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I’m standing over here until you FIX THIS!!!!!!! Immediately!!!!!!!!!
Here’s what Farley actually looked like once I was done. I left her forelock for the summer flies. My clippers are old and didn’t like the thick thick thick mane, so it wasn’t totally roached down to the skin.
She has little fluffy hairs that emminate from the opposite side that the mane lays, so you can’t even see the change from the left side! Especially with my handle flopped over.
Regarding the clipped jaw line – No whiskers where harmed during the making of the jaw line – just extra fuzzies from underneath. Not even clipped to the skin.
Farley prefers to stand in the shade will hopefully no one notices the travesty that just occurred.
