Too late to clip?

I was thinking of clipping my new horse for the May Show. It will be on May 22. Is it too late to clip him? I don't want him to have a dull coat.

I know nothing about clipping to be honest but I know a guy that clips (and does a great job) for a small fee.

You can body clip him now but use a size #8 blade which won't leave as short a clip as a #10 blade. You'll get the neat short hair but not the dull coat but do it now. Clip as soon as possible and make sure you give a good bath after the clip and use a little conditioner. Then just lots of elbow grease everyday. If you start soon you'll be good for the show.

What kind of clip do you want to do? I don't think its to late just use a different size of clipping blade :)

I live in Michigan. I was going to probably do a full body clip if I had time or at least clip his legs, whiskers and bridle path.

You can clip his whiskers and bridlepath whenever, really.
A full body clip would be okay, depending on the weather (what type of weather are you having? - I never watch the news). If it's cold, use a blanket.
I think it'll be fine.
