I can tell by the lovely white circles in the grass that he rolls several times a day, but I pretty much agree now, he won't be clipped.

Cold weather, that's funny. This is Arizona, no more cold weather for us. I spoke to the owner of the tack shop I bought the shedding blade at and he said he just clipped one of his foals that grew a really thick coat too, but he did if before he started shedding and agreed that it shouldn't be done after, so I've given up on that idea.
