I absolutely love fancy Arabs.
so just a general question to every body, this is something that just occurred to me. While my mare is only lightly being ridden right now her work load will increase throughout the winter, she'll be in training 1x a week, plus a couple other rides and lunges on the other days. we will more than likely start cantering her under saddle sometime in the early new year. She's in her stall every night, and has the option of being double blanketed. turnout is every third day.
so just with that information again would it be best to do something like a trace clip, or go with taking off more hair? I know I kinda already gave that information at the top and received good replies, but remember I know next to nothing about what would be best, etc etc. So trace clip or take more off? I really don't want to spend hours cooling out this mare haha. (we had a problem with that with one mare last winter who wasn't clipped!
