Winter Grooming and Conditioning?
Hey there everyone !
I just thought I might as well ask some questions and cross my fingers that I can get decent answers.
So-- I'm a first time horse owner, and I do know alot...I do everything for my horse. Its just winter time. :/ I hate Winter time, their coats get long, its cold to ride, cold bits! Bah !
So my first question, What exactly is the purpose for bagging a horses tail, and how do you do it ?! I'm really interested in this. What would I use?
Another thing... Blanketing..How do you know when you should add another liner underneath the winter blanket?
A big one Do you think its okay to clip their legs up to their knees in winter time?
When do they start shedding out their winter fur? Around what month?
Is there anything else I should know what to do in the winter time regarding grooming/ conditioning and keeping my horse healthy?
Thanks so much guys!
