So I ordered a heavy weight blanket (it said unclipped horses down to 10-0 degrees F and Clipped horses down to 20 F.) I thought it was the best without spending an arm and a leg (money is tight right now). I do have an underlay I can put on him too if need be.
I do plan on working him this winter, but am concerned of him over heating because of his coat. Would it be OK to clip him? Not a full body clip, but like a trace clip or something? I would be doing this once I got his blanket of course.
Now, I only ordered a heavy weight. I'm guessing when it starts to warm up, or if there's a warm spell, i'd have to remove his heavyweight and put on a medium weight, correct?
What would happen, if there was a warm day, and I just took his blanket off? Would that cause a huge problem?
