I was able to get Cash done tothis point in about 3 1/2 hours. He was so tired of being messed with! At one point he had his front legs and head on the table and his rear in the air (I was drying it at the time)!I think you did a good job on the trimming. It takes patience. When I first started gooming my toys, I spent 5 hours on one toy. I have it down to under 2 hours depending on if I am grooming for show or just trimming up. I can't imagine having to groom a standard. Be patient, you will improve with time and practice. Once I got my digital camera, I take lots of pictures and most of the time I will get enough good shots that I can print for my album.
Riding, Who said that was allowed!!! LOL - My daughter came down three times when I was grooming Cash to ask if she could get her mare and ride! I had to keep telling her NO! What a mean Mom I am!Love it!!!!!! You did a great job !!!! I went riding instead of scissoring sorry i bathed but not trimming ...I hope I am forgiven
