I'm planning to clip my new wooly mammoth...err, I mean, horse. In addition to being VERY hairy, he is also pretty out of shape - which combines to make a horse who gets sweaty VERY easily. And then obviously requires 30 minutes of walking with a cooler to completely cool/dry off. So, that's why I'm clipping him! Considering the thickness of his coat, it's going to look very silly, but I intend to just trace clip him. I am not a fan of, and really have no need for, a full body clip.
Of course, a trace clip looks like this:
So my question is: What weight of blanket should I put on him? Could I get away with a medium weight (220g fill) + maybe a fleece sheet, or do I need to go to a heavy weight? Do I need a neck cover? And/or a belly wrap?
