Too soon to clip?
Okay so I'm not going to deal with my boy becoming a pasture yak again this winter...not at all!:shock:
So I'm wondering, is it too early to clip in the next week or so? He's already got the winter fuzz starting...fuzzy wuzzy :wink:
I have plenty of blankets, he has two run in sheds and gets fed 3x daily in a slow feeder and get worked 4-6 days a week so it's not like he will just be sitting there naked all winter....not with my plans to show him this winter.
I just was wondering if there is a "too soon" to clip?

As long as you have a blanket for him, it shouldn't be an issue.

That's what I figured but after the very first time I clipped him and he got so sick but I clipped him partially and later in the season but he did perfectly fine then so I'm sure he will be just fine this winter!

You can clip anytime you want but if you do so now then he will want doing again in a few weeks as his winter coat will not yet be fully in.
Depending on the weather in your area do not over blanket early in the season.

I gave my haffy a chaser type clip yesterday, but it was such a warm evening and night I didn't put her LW rug on (she lives out).

He will be fine to clip now but will need doing again in the next few weeks when the rest of his coat grows in

If you`re not stabling him, I would vote for a trace clip. He`ll be `hairier` but should be able to handle heating up from the workouts.

I'd wait until his winter coat is all the way in to avoid having to reclip if it were me.
