BJB--The lesson barn I ride at still turns horses out during the day (nice days) all winter, then bring them in for the night.
By clipping the horses, it means less time cooling out, and the horses aren't put away wet. Not all of the horses get clipped, only the ones that get sweatier. Clip jobs also vary per horse, with some just getting their neck/chest clipped, some trace clips, and some body clips (leg and face hair left).
Blue eyed-Some horses take longer to shed out then others, so it might just be that he is holding onto it more this year. A shedding blade helps a lot, and frequent brushing.
The past few years, hearts have been the "in" thing at our barn.
