Body Clipping

Yes I know... yet another thread on body clipping. I paged through all the threads... oober helpful. However, I was wondering when was too early to clip. I plan on showing through the winter and well... the beast is white, it would go a long way in keeping him cleanish plus help with cooling him out.

Can I clip now or do I need to wait till his coat has fully grown in?

Well I just cliped Sona but I'm in florida so its still hot. She got way to fuzzy to early this year.

I don't think its ever to early just be aware the you may have to clip him again.

And make sure you have LOTS of blankets. And a hood.

Yea we've been fuzzy since late Sept. I noticed it when I was last able to bath...=(

We're already clipping here as well. But our "kids" started getting their blankets on in the evenings since last week. But i'm in California, and still in full training. So my guy is in constant work and has to have that fur coat, gone! Also, i'm lucky enough to live somewhere that it doesn't get cold enough for it to reeeeally matter too much.

We've already whipped out the heavy blankets a few times, hit 27 last night.

I had one last year that we clipped in June, and again in September, so I don't think you can clip too early, as such. Most here are get done about late October/early November though.

I think it just depends on your horse, if they're quite hairy and sweating up clip but if you think they're not that bad yet you could put it off. My boy got clipped about 2 weeks ago. Normal time is october-end of november. Some people clip again in january so you coulr clip again if you need to, just wouldn't do it any later than that or it can affect their casting and summer coat coming in.

We've started clipping horses. Some have to get clipped once now and once before Christmas and then they are good. Mine is usually good for just one clip mid-november but he is fairly hairless.

Thanks for the info guys. I'll have to let you know how it goes. I may have to video the whole thing for everyone's entertainment.

Are you doing a full body clip or just a trace? (Just out of curiousity....)
