Yes my Appaloosas gets a very heavy winter coat and the coat is curly in places is this normal. Should I clip her, some say they get winter coats for a reason leave it alone. I do a lot of trail riding with her in the winter and she seems to do fine, she sheads out greate in the summer. This summer she did not shed it all, but we did move from south to north and im thinking maybe change in climate was the reason and suggestions. I live in North Florida close to the Georgia line now, and used to live down south florida.
