    I don't like hem. I am not for clipping, I just think it's unneccessary and it really must pinch terribly

    Yeah. They look funny, naked, and I think it's very uncomfortable to them. Imagine yoursef in winter. Wearing jacket, but in this jacket would be a huge hole on your belly. And then again winter trousers. I think it would be very uncomfortable for you to have this kind of clothes. And the "reason" for this? That the horses get sweaty and they can get ill and sick??? Wth??? You don't have any time to put "( I dunno the right word-try to understand )sweat-drinking blanket" over your horse and simply walk with him for 10 minutes?

    We're going to chest clip Caleigh because her winter coat is so thick she just sweats and sweats and then doesn't dry or cool off well at all. She has a blanket, well a couple blankets to keep her warm after we clip her. She's never been clipped so it'll be a learning experience. We're going to take it nice and slow. I do tend to like the furry. Although I leased a horse a while back who was clipped to represent every holiday his owners could do. If I can dig up some old pictures I'll scan and post em. He had a pumpkin on his butt for Halloween and jiggle bells and ornaments for Christmas, they didn't do thanksgiving that I can remember I don't think he had grown the fur back in time.

    Sorry for the long post. I like seeing peoples clips. Some are very interesting.

    I clipped rhydian because the barn I rode her at was not heated so it was FREEZING ! But I wanted to show her over the winter & the winter shows are at heated barns where its at least 40degrees warmer. If I hadnt clipped her at all she would have sweated buckets from being so hot. She had problems regulating her body temp anyways so it was a must. I would have clipped more but she was a freak about it haha. I think its really mean to take your horse to a heated barn to ride & not clip them if they have been used to being outside all winter. They just get so hot you can't hardly ride them

    Thats cute :)

    I can see why one would want to clip their horses coat for proper body heat regulation when working. We had a cushings horse at the barn I used to ride at that would grow such a long wavy coat and poor thing would sweat like crazy if he was worked, so it made sense to help him out a bit, give him a "breather" so to speak.

    How did you go about clipping if she was a little freaky about it? The lady I bought Caleigh from said she'd been clipped only once and when I ran the clippers (really quiet and cordless) she tensed and backed away. We were going to have the vet sedate her a little but the sedation did nothing when we had her teeth done and the vet doesn't want to experiment with more.
