Thanks showpony@heart. What state are you in? I'm in northern NSW but it's not very cold yet but I still keep him rugged as much as possible.

Haha those pics are cute Barnrat. That is what I would consider a very very thick coat. I think I'm just paranoid and I'm sure alot of horses will be alot more hair than mine. But he has been clipped alot before so maybe it might grow extra long for a tb?

Anyways I'll take some pics of what I call a fuzzy coat. And I'll take some more when It really gets into winter.

I have a friend who's pony is tb x estonian & she doesnt't get very furry, though estonians are very furry horses in winter! She uses stablerugs & combs as much as she can.

HI,

Have you noticed horses that are not rugged, left out in the paddock and not given much extra food in winter, get as fluffy as anything, yet in summer they have a beautiful shiny coat??????????
What are us idiots doing, we buy expesive rugs, feed them expensive food, trying to get the same result.....ha!!!!!!
Maybe we all need to learn something from this.........lo

Try a cool coat, dooner/woolen rug and 1 or 2 winter rug...make sure they cover part of his face as well....(don't over heat him tho) he is still going to get some what of a winter coat..... unless stabled or clipped.
You could also try some linseed in his feed as well, brings out the shine and darker colour. (made sure you boil the linseed first, as it is toxic to horses, unboiled.

Well today we clipped him.

His black coat was starting to go a reddish colour so I just gave up.

I thought that when we would clip him he'd go dull and grey.

He's actually the shiniest I've ever seen him and he's gone a beautiful grullo/grey/dun/brown colour.

I'll take a pic once I get a new picture card for my new camera.

I'm glad I got it done. He looks much neater and for some reason he looks fatter, sleeker and taller.

Congrats, I got my boy done a couple of weeks ago, generally after a couple of weeks they dull a little so if you use QV(i think that is what it is called) wash from the chemist on him it will bring back some shine

for Australian conditions, now is a good time to clip to have ponies ready for the August/September early shows. When competing I will usually clip now and rug for warmth (mirotech rugs are great for this as they take away the need to have extreme amounts of layers on the babies) Just make sure you do extra grooming to help promote blood circulation and help oils to come back into the coat!

I was always told not to clip after Mothers Day as It could damage their summer coat, if it didn't I would love to clip him again because he's getting a tad hair again.
