I am currently leasing a Friesian x Paint Sporthorse gelding and he just turned four. I want to start to clean him up and make him look sharper so
I'm having trouble deciding whether or not what I want to do with his feathers on his fetlocks. He has four white stockings from his Paint mother and the feathers don't cover this entire foot, just behind right where the fetlock sticks out. It is white and it accumulates a lot of dirt so they get filthy quickly. We are training him to jump and we are doing a lot of dressage with him in hopes to do some eventing in the future. I have asked around and many people say I should cut them and some say that it adds to his Friesian build and to keep them because if I cut them he might just look like an oversized paint horse. Any opinions? Suggestions? I will post a pitcure with this. Thank you!
