Trailering was a breeze, fortunately, and when we got there she did refrain from trying to run away or kicking the dog or something. XD There was much whinneying, of course. And she was relatively well-behaved until it came time to clip...by the end of round 1 there was a twitch on her ear (looked like a version of a C-clamp), a rope over her nose, and one person to hold her while the other wielded the clippers.
I, having had NO experience whatsoever in this area, kept well-away and watched. I supposed I COULD have taken pictures, but there would have been lots of ugly pictures of Shiska rolling her eyes, tossing her head (at one point, when the twitch was on her lip, she tried to use it like a flail. O.o), and people getting angry. ^^; By Round 2 she had given up fighting and was standing relatively calmly.
A note about her fighting: she wasn't scared of the clippers, because she was fine with the clippers being rubbed over her neck and face while it ran, but her mentality is 'if I don't wanna, I don't hafta' and 'MAKE ME'. So...she has to be shown that there are literally no other options. (Same with the pulling when she suddenly decided, after walking calmly into the trailer dozens of times before, that she 'didn't wanna'. By simply tying a knot that she could not get to slip she fought against it for a while, jumped in the trailer, and I haven't had a problem since. *shrugs*)
The biggest tips I've gotten are to get her cleaned up as best as I can (which will be a challenge--the horses currently live in a mud/manure pit *cries*), and when she's in the auction area to just keep her moving. She'll be so worked up that I think putting a saddle on her would hurt rather than help my chances at selling her...but she can lead off both sides. While that is completely and totally natural to me, apparently some horses won't do that. *scratches head* I...don't exactly understand why people don't train their horses to do that. But anyway. She loaded just fine after the clipping episode, and she looks very nice now. *will have to get pictures*
Granted, if I'd had my druthers I would prefer to have taken a few days to get her used to the clippers and get her to the point where she'd stand still for them. But I don't have any clippers (except for the people kind, and I don't think my dad and brother would appreciate me using theirs on the horse. XD)...sigh. If it was Violet, I WOULD have to do that because she would have been a quivering mess at the end of the same episode. *headdesk*
