Any tips on getting a horse used to clippers? My horse lifts up his head super high and backs up. My baby boy is growing ear tuffs and they need to go!

You should bring him in to where you would clip him and let him just sniff the clippers. Then i would turn them on and just let him look at it and get used to the noise. Let him sniff it and figure it out on his own time. Once you get him used to that just touch the handle part of the clippers on him so he can feel it. Hopefully as you do this you can start bringing it closer to his ears and face. Hope this helps!❤️
