I want to grow out Harry's hair for a modified lamb clip now. Thing is I just shaved his legs and butt again so we'll have a ways to go to get enough hair for it. I want to make the lamb kind of short because I like Harry short. He chews bones and the stuff gets stuck in his hair and it's just easier for me to wash when the hair is shorter. So with that said, how should I start? Should I just clip down everything pretty short so that it will have a chance to grow out at a more even length? I've got a 5 and 7 blade or I have combs. I can also scissor it but I'd rather use the clipper.
