I've always seen clipping(if done right) bring the best of a horse's color out. all the horses that my team clipped turned out amazingly! if you are scared clip a small patche on his chest or something to see the color

My sister has a palomino that she clips in the winter. In the summer he is very golden and after clipping he is almost white. It doesn't look bad to me though.



He looks a little weird in this picture because she didn't do a full clip. But if you do a full clip it should look fine.

I wouldnt body clip him now. I think if you had decided to do it in Feb. it would have worked out but I think if you do it now you will be cutting your horses summer coat and his coat will look dull all summer.

We show clip all of our pintos so we have to be careful we dont lose color. We clip with a number 10 only and clip about 6-7 days before the show. Remember the more you clip the faster the color comes back. By the third clipping the color comes in really fast.

I do have friends that are believers in covering the horse in mayo after clipping and they swear it brings color back quicker but Im not sure as I have never done it.

yeah thing is with palominos they arent that shiny to start of with no brilliant golds at my place unfortunately
and trying not to have dapples is a plus to judges here dont like it cause it looks like (exactly wat theyve probably done) and fed them up to there eyeballs lol
