Clipperman Horse Clippers
Launched in 2016, Clipperman® is a brand dedicated to providing exceptional clippers, trimmers and shearers for horses, dogs, and livestock. Clipperman® celebrated their launch by working with Blenheim Palace International Horse Trials on their first sponsorship. As far as clippers go, Clipperman® caters for everyone – from one dog needing a trim, to a riding school of working horses needing full clips. Their range offers mains and battery-operated clippers and trimmers, as well as blades, oil, blade wash, and even additional battery packs.
As stated by Clipperman® themselves: “People clip for a number of reasons, but most commonly for comfort and appearance. In the winter months, horses are clipped to reduce the amount they sweat during hard work and, therefore, improve comfort and hygiene at the same time as allowing them to work harder for longer. In the summer, trimmers can tidy up stray hairs with precision and ease. As for dogs, clipping does tidy up a long coat, but can also promote hygiene and comfort. It can reduce matting and the chance of skin issues, and also enhance their enjoyment of warmer weather. Cattle are clipped or sheared for a multitude of reasons, including hygiene and showing. Sheep are sheared for collection of wool, to keep them cool and for the health of the sheep e.g. to prevent fly strike.”
It is important to maintain clippers, shearers or trimmers in order to get the very best out of them. Clipperman® have created a manual to assist, available here at the Clipperman website
The time for clipper blades to be sharpened is determined by various factors:
* Hair hygiene – clean hair lengthens the time between sharpening sessions, whilst dirty hair will cause blades to become blunt more quickly.
* Type of clipping – it makes sense that the more full clips completed, the sooner the clipper blades will need sharpening.
* The amount of oil you use during a clip, or the tension on the blades as you use them. Too much tension will cause the blades to become blunt more quickly, too little tension and the blades won’t clip at all. A thin application of clipper oil is important, though be careful not to use too much oil! If unsure, check the instruction manual of your specific set of clippers.
