I would be unlikely to clip in the summer, though I do body clip in the winter.

Derry Girl. Be ready for something totally off topic here. WHERE do you go on the internet to look at jobs in Ireland. I haven't found a good site yet.

Haha ..thats a bit random....amm what kind of job? If your moving to the north and its just a general job is the local site for jobs, theres the odd horsey one but mostly shop/office work. One that's good for horsey jobs would probably be ...
Others just of the top of me head would be ...

Another site would be (north) and (south) its one of them sites that people sell stuff on but theres a section for people listing jobs available, or you could put an ad up for yourself saying your moving here and you want a job doing... whatever
... hope this helps! Where abouts are you moving to? You have to come visit Derry!

I wouldn't clip in summer. I know you think you will be making your horse cooler, but in reality, you are not. The horse's coat insulates from the heat. When you clip you take away their insulation as well as making them hotter because there isn't as much between their skin/body and the suns rays.

After two hours of brushing today, and a few blisters, I was ready to take a blow torch to those woolly beasts. I considered bodyclipping, but I won't, I'll brush since I love it so much.

There is usually a "season" to clip. We clip middle to the end of winter and end up with pretty, shiny coats by show season.

So when do you guys say is the latest to clip? Not to steal the thread... but my coach suggested I body clip by appendix because he's still SUPER furry and we're already showing and he gets so so sweaty.

clipping, grooming
