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?
You know how to make a miniature horse even smaller? Leave them in the dryer a little longer!
