Body clipping a mini pregnant mare
I recently rescued a pregnant mini mare and am wondering if it's safe to body clip. Obviously blanketing goes without saying and she is in an indoor box stall. Reason I am asking...She was filthy when I got her so I gave her a bath but the temperatures have dropped so it's not safe to give her another one. She would stand in the stall itching like crazy but the bath seemed to help. The past week or so she itching has started up again but because of her long coat I can't get anything on her coat to calm the irritation down. I should also mention I rescued her with a foal by her side w/o was doing the same thing but I did clip him and he totally fine...all skin irritation is gone. Just want to make sure it's okay to clip her?? I know I will need to clip her belly before go along so the baby doesn't get to the long hair while nursing but just curious about now. She is at 194 days today. Would so appreciate thoughts!! Thank you!!
