Whiskers : Clip or Not to Clip?
Do you clip your horse’s whiskers for that show polished look?
At first sight they may seem little redundant and not particularly appealing (think clean shaven guy vs. one with some serious unkempt facial hair). But let’s think beyond the curb appeal here. Whiskers are there for a reason. They tell the horse something is getting too close to his eyes – like a branch. It’s a protection against getting poked in the eye, which can lead to irritation or infection. Not fun! Some horses can also be pretty adamant about refusing having ointments applied to their eyes.
So protect your horse’s peepers and go natural!
