Dana Boyd-Miller To Be Featured On TV

Andis Clipper Company

Andis Company announced today that Dana Boyd-Miller, educational consultant for the company, will be featured in six episodes of TV, which will begin airing in November. In these four-minute segments, Boyd-Miller demonstrates and explains various clipping and maintenance techniques and provides advice on keeping horses calm during grooming sessions. Andis is one of the main sponsors of the television program.

“We strongly believe in equine education, and TV provides Andis an opportunity to share our clipper grooming expertise with over 25 million homes over RFD-TV,” notes Fred Koeller, Vice President of Marketing at Andis Company. “ TV is dedicated to educating horse enthusiasts, and grooming is an important part of horse maintenance. Andis clippers are extremely quiet, which horses appreciate, and groomers like the fact that they can be used for the whole horse, because the blades are detachable.”

Boyd-Miller has been a professional horsewoman for over 25 years and is regarded as the premier master horse groomer. She clips A-circuit show horses and lives in Wellington, FL in the winter where the hunter/jumper circuit lasts from Christmas through April. Boyd-Miller clipper cuts over 700 of the country’s best show ponies, hunters, and jumpers each year.

“Technique is extremely important in grooming a horse,” says Boyd-Miller. “But the clipper you use is also critical. Initially, I was leery of the Andis clipper because it’s smaller than the one I’d been using. But it is powerful and gives an excellent clip all over without leaving any corduroy effect. I had been suffering from tendonitis and was told I’d need to change professions, until I tried those Andis clippers.” TV, in cooperation with the RFD-TV Network, syndicates TV to over 25 million homes across the United States on the Dish TV Network (ch.9409), Direct TV (ch.379) Mediacom Cable (ch.78) and National Cable TV Cooperative. Dish (ch.9409) and Direct TV (ch.379) air TV on Wednesday at 4:30pm and 10:30pm EST, Thursday at 8:30am EST and Saturday at 1:30pm EST.
