We have to braid his mane, tail and forelock in the summer because it is SO thick.....we don't want to cut or thin it either...but it looks like we might....dont know, Patty (the owner) does not want to but Arurora (instructor) wants to...

Hey, I should have a say! I am the one braiding it every week!

That is so cool how Mike can grow his fur out a couple of inches. He's lucky. The horses that I will be working with don't grow their hair out that far.

I have a TB cross, TBs being notorious for their lack of hair doesn't help! My horse is a weinie and grows nearly no winter coat. He has more blankets then I do. :roll:

I wish my horse had this problem. I can't stand winter hair on my horses and I usually end up body clipping them and keeping them under blankets and hoods all winter. I've gotten better in the past couple of years but grooming a horse with a winter coat somehow isn't quite as satisfying as grooming a nice, shiny summer coat. Plus they take forever to dry off.

I would have body clipped mike but I ran out of time....also he is constantly outside and he does not have a blanket

TJ doesn't have a blanket either, and I can't imagine she would ever let me put one on her if I had one. She is sooo spooky.

She also doesn't grow much of a winter coat. Don't know if its the TB in her or not, but either way, there's not much difference between her summer or winter coat.

(i really need to get the camera out)
