Horse clipping can be a necessity in cold weather when your horse's winter coats grow in. Clipping can prevent matting in horse hair. It's usually done in a strip style, but a couple of custom horse clipping companies in England are making a global name for themselves after turning horse clipping into artwork.
JMC Driving and Custom Clipping in North West England creates custom clipping work that is nothing short of spectacular. On their Facebook page, a representative from JMC wrote of the image above "This was completed over three sessions in three days,".
As exquisite as the cuts may be, they're not without controversy as some people have called the clips cruelty to animals. In response JMC wrote, "There were many people getting irate over what is essentially, simply a hair cut. No animal is ever forced to stand or made to feel uncomfortable during the making of these. In fact, they actually quite enjoy the whole experience." Along with custom clipping jobs, JMC also breaks and sells horses and tack.
