My horse is out for about 12 hours a day, and he has his entire lower legs clipped. He'll get scratches once in awhile, but not anything worse than when he has full hair. My logic behind clipping is to prevent the fungus that he always seems to get on the front of his hind legs every summer, and it works. I wouldn't be too concerned if you're just tidying up the long hairs on the fetlocks- he will be fine.
