Dana Boyd-Miller To Be Featured On HorseCity.com TV
Andis Clipper Company
Andis Company announced today that Dana
Boyd-Miller, educational consultant for the company, will be featured in six episodes of
HorseCity.com 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 HorseCity.com 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.
“HorseCity.com 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.”
