Whiskers Protect Your Horse . . . like Bubblewrap! (NOT!): (Or why horse experts shouldn’t extrapolate conclusions from rat experiments.)



Who would think that a bit of keratin (the protein that hair is made from) would, or even could, cause so much controversy?

The main reason I’m writing this book is to stop the nonsensical shaming of clipper-wielding owners worldwide looking to tidy up their horses by giving them a fashionable haircut. They plug in their electronic shearers, advance on their hairy, bewhiskered equine companions, and some religiously fanatical “whisker-Nazi” bears down on them, yanks out the plug and cries, “How could you?! How could you shave the tentacles, er, whiskers, off that animal like a heartless, godless barbarian?” Some, but not all, natural horsemanship followers believe whiskers protect their horses (like bubblewrap! LOL) and need to prevent the indiscriminate de-hair-ment of horses everywhere. Because that is their sacred duty by all means possible.

Though the previous paragraph may have a touch of sarcasm to it, some of these people are quite fervent in their approach and need some discreet reining in. One wonders they don’t have something better to do with their lives. It’s hair, for goodness’ sake. Not worthy of a revolution.

Read what I say. Read (and watch) the evidence from the other sites. Pick it apart and look for loopholes and unclearness. If you have evidence, actual evidence, scientific evidence to the contrary of anything I have researched here, please share it with me and I can either make my point more clear or change my stance with the new information and facts.

Because it is only ever about the facts. Everything else is just anecdotal opinion... and we know what people say about opinions, eh? ;)
