summer VS. winter coats
I would love to see how the differance between your horses winter and summer coats.
Here is Mikes
Wowo, he sure knows how to grow hair! Haha, he is cute in his winter coat.
We have to braid his mane, tail and forelock in the summer because it is SO thick.....we dont want to cut or thin it either...but it looks like we might....dont know, Patty (the owner) does not want to but Arurora (instructor) wants to...
Hey, i should have a say! I am the one braiding it every week!
That is so cool how Mike can grow his fur out a couple of inches. He's lucky. The horses that I will be working with don't grow their hair out that far. :shock:
Every horse grows out a winter coat...just some more then others...Hes not so lucky when it takes him longer to shed out.
I have a TB cross, TBs being notorious for their lack of hair doesn't help! My horse is a weinie and grows nearly no winter coat. He has more blankets then I do. :roll:
lol, there is a girl at our barn that bought the same blanket she did for her arab for her dog! The Same blanket! only different sizes.
I would have body clipped mike but I ran out of time....also he is constantly outside and he does not have a blanket
TJ doesn't have a blanket either, and i can't imagine she would ever let me put one on her if i had one. she is sooo spooky.
she also doesn't grow much of a winter coat. don't know if its the TB in her or not, but either way, there's not much difference between her summer or winter coat.
(i really need to get the camera out)
