i need to trim the hair around maisies bum bum. she is very furry there. :))

i thought maybe a nose hair trimmer would be best as it is narrower and may be easier to handle?

what does everyone else use? :)

Or how about a 'bikini' trimmer?

Most seem to have the little comb thing on the front to protect the skin and they're slimmer that regular hair trimmers :)

thanks. i need to make sure it will be ok round her bits, as that is mainly where i need to trim the hair down. :...

luckily, after her trim yesterday, she has managed to clean herself up a bit! but i would still prefer the hair shorter on her underneath. :)

i got the remington beard trimmer set from tesco and it's really good for under a tenner. really happy with it, and it's quite funny that maisie has her own beard trimmer! :))

I'm glad it went ok. Maisie can set a new trend amongst piggies. :(|)
:)) before i used it, i showed it to her.... she was not impressed! rolleyes:))

she was so good though, even if mummy did make a bit of a mess with her fur :red i thought she would hate the sound of the trimmer but she wasn't bothered really, just demanded more and more coriander! :))x)
