Clipping and color
If I clip my mare, will her hair grow back its original dark palomino? She was wonderfully copper until last September when all of a sudden she faded horribly. If I clip her will her hair grow back dark again? This summer I have a UVA ray protected fly sheet for her so hopefully that will help. But if I do clip her this spring will her hair grow back dark or light? If that doesn't help, what can I do to get her color back? I am already supplementing paparika. She is shedding, but the only colors I can still see are light and washed out. Her color now is awful looking compared to what it used to be!
Also, would a light turnout sheet help until the flies come out? If so, could someone point me to an uninsulated or lightly insulated turnout sheet? One that can withstand shenanigans? Thank you!
