Well, I would like to know. LOL
Chief has a bit of feathering, and I do not generally clip. He has had a couple injuries to the RF ankle and vet suggested boots. I now have some Iconoclast boots for him.
Last fall, although used only a few times and the 'feathering' was thin with the summer coat, they were getting mashed down. I was thinking they might interfere with the boots so cut them as close as possible with scissors.
They grew back curly. LOL
So he now has heavier and longer winter feathers, straight hairs on the back and curly hair on the fronts. LOL
Almost time to be able to ride more frequently now.
What do I do? Cut them again? Have someone clip them for me? I like the bug protection they offer, so would just leaving them there under the boots be OK?
