Really? She just wants to clip a small shamrock into the horses bum.

Unless you have someone running around after you with a blanket to throw over the horses back when waiting around at shows the poor horse is left with a cold back and cold muscles get damaged easily.
Unless you live in a place where it still thinks it is winter like Canada, it is considered springtime, and most horses as SHEDDING out their winter coats right now. In two weeks time, I would hope she wouldn't need a cooler, and if she does, well then putting a cooler on a horse after it has been worked is pretty normal. I used a cooler today at a schooling show, and it isn't a really big bother. Take it off before I go in the ring, and put it back on when I walk out. Easy peasy.

Would using chalk to help outline the shamrock help to clip the pattern in?

What about brushing the hair in the wrong way with the stencil on, so that you can still see the shamrock, but you aren't clipping the summer coat? Or using a product like Twinkle Horse glitter in green?
emmasacha, Cinder and Ripplewind like this.

I was thinking about using chalk.
And actually, she hardly gets a winter coat. She's already done shedding and is baby-butt soft! I love it, but hate it. Shedding is so fun, but I almost never get to really go at it.
(I just go and shed everyone else's horse! Haha)

clipping, show
