So even if I clip while he's shedding he can look shiny?

Yes, it is possible but it all depends on your feed program and how much care and time you put into bringing that shine back to his coat. The longer the time you can clip and wait for it to grow back some before a show, the better the results. Super 14 does wonders for a horses coat and is a staple in my feed program. At the time of the picture I referred you to that mare was eating strategy, so very close in formula to your equistages.

Minis typically grow coats faster than other full size horses so while 7 days is what mine need to grow sufficient coat, it may vary from horse to horse. I have a pinto mare that I clip at least 10 days before a show or her white hair looks rather pink because of the skin underneath.

Also the longer body clip you leave, the easier it is to get the shine back. I clip mine with a 10 or 15 blade (depends on the horse) and then use a various mix of 30, 40, and 50 blades on the face/ears and legs (I will not give out all my secrets where I clip with what blade).

When is this show that you are preparing for?

It's not until may. But I just wanted to get a head start and a fresh slate to start his grooming process. He was abandoned and his mane and coat are so dull and shaggy and he's hue too. 16.2 hands.

If it was me, I would do a full body clip the first week of april. That gives you a month and a half to work on bringing his coat back to life since you don't have the previous ecperience. It took me a couple years to discover the way I do mine and bring the coat back so quick.

You can do it in march but be prepared to blanket the horse when it gets down to 50 and lower with at least a light sheet. At least if you wait till april you will have less cold snaps.
