Okay, so I'm kinda stuck now. Yesterday I had a talk with my trainer and we both agreed it would be better to clip my horse. He has an uberfluffy winter coat which is awesome to cuddle, but not that awesome to dry after a work out. And since he gets an intensive work out this winter (every day), it would be for the best to shave him. Now the problem is, when I asked him what blanket do I get (how warm), he said "at least 600g". So I came home and searched for some blankets on the internet just to get an idea of what I'm going to buy tomorrow when I'm going to the tack shop. The thing is, I didn't find a single 600g blanket. The heaviest blankets I found were 350g and those were really rare and usually labeled "extra heavy" or something like that that indicated it is the extreme. So, have I missed something here? I already saw one blanket in the shop last week (I'm going to have a look at it again tomorrow), which seemed super good (to me) - 100% water proof, fleece underneath, cross surcingles, leg straps, tail protection, came with a separate cooler blanket. And all that was quite cheap. The shop assistant told me it's REALLY heavy, something you'd put on a horse in extreme freezing temperatures. Still I don't think it was more than 300g, not even 250g if I remember correctly... Do you have an idea why he said 600g? Is there something I'm missing? Did he mean two blankets on each other? What blanket should I get for my horse? He's stalled but the stable isn't heated and it's the outside kinda stable, the horses are looking outside all the time (though the windows are closed at night, at least I hope so... will ask). Though there is another stable behind the back wall so the front wall is the only one being in contact with the cold of the outside. He gets a one hour heavy workout a day. The temperatures here vary between 30°F and 20°F (0°C and -6°C). The trainer mentioned cliping him whole but I was thinking about leaving the legs and possibly the belly. I don't understand horse clipping but I think clipping him all isn't necessary. I'm planning to call him again and ask once more, I just want to know your opinions in case I don't get him on the phone before I go to the shop. And just in case this helps, he gets 1l of grains in the morning, 1l at noon and 1,5l in the evening and 0,5l of müsli and 2 cups of BOSS after riding. Plus lots of hay of course. Thanks in advance.
