body clipping and sunburn....
Hi! I have two adorable minis. One is a palomino, the other is a black and white pinto. I body clipped them today (I blanket when the temps get 55 degrees or under...I am in SoFla so relief from the heat is important). Do I need to worry about sunburn? Maybe just for the first week or two after clipping? Neither one of them is "pink." They are black around their eyes and their muzzles. The pinto's skin does appear pink on his body, on the parts that are white.
I would hate to stall them, they roam the paddocks all day, with their stall doors open and fans on in the stalls in case they want shelter/cool air. I will do it, though, if it will protect their skin.
