    why would someone do this???

    I was talking to a girl from my old barn and I was asking her about all the horses there. She was telling me about this one girl we know who has a large warmblood horse (gorgeous!) with a thick winter coat. Apparently she decided to clip him down to the very bone. And not just on his belly, but everywhere... including his FACE, inside his ears, around his eyes (took the eyelashes off!!) and well, everywhere!! Umm... its winter! WHY OH WHY would someone do that? Even if she blankets him, he's going to freeze, poor thing! The thing is, I went there last winter to visit the horses and found him clipped like this. Apparently it was a clipping mistake last time, but this time its because she doesn't want to cool him out after working him. I feel soo bad for him. Last year when I saw him clipped, he looked like he had a skin disease. It was soo sad .... Why do people do stuff like that??

    Usually if a horse is a full competition horse that stays indoors most of the time and is worked upwards every day, they can safely be full body clipped. Most horses that are on turnout just do a trace or hunter clip.
    I don't know why anyone would full body clip a horse on turnout.
