Clipping Questions (newbie to clipping)
I'm thinking about clipping my gelding but I'm not sure whether or not to, he's a Canadian horse so he grows quite the heavy coat in the winter and I plan on working him regularly throughout the winter. He's already started to grow his coat and he's been sweating way more than usual because of the coat. I was planning on just doing the underbelly and neck clip. I am just wondering if he'll be too cold during the winter, he lives outside during the day and goes in his stall at night but it's not heated at all. He wears a blanket all winter long, he usually doesn't need it though till about mid October. Right now overnight it drops down to up 9 degrees Celsius and goes up to about 16 Celsius during the day, would I need to start blanketing him right away if I did clip him?
