My OH (other half) and Daisy helped me with the Minions today. I wanted to have a start at getting the tats out of their coats.
We caught and tied each Minion up to string on a separate hitching post outside and “attacked” them one at a time.
First was Storm. He was the most revolting and I felt very sorry for him.
Piles of fur was cut out and he was so good about it. I had the front end to talk to and cajole into behaving. That was my job.
Next was Waffle. He was very patient and has always loved me grooming him. He gets so hot when the sun shines that he wants rid of his baby fluff as soon as possible.
The front is tatty and the workers cut it away as much as they could.
Such a good little boy.
There were offers of help and support.
Waffle found the stripping comb. I removed the stripping comb.
Lastly, it was Silver’s turn. He had a bit of a tantrum with the clipping.
The others were very busy getting up to no good.
We put out some “toys” to keep the children entertained.
They love buckets
They really love buckets!
We will do more gradually over the summer. This is definitely work-in-progress for all three colts.
