Well that whole procedure is a bit of a pain in the butt (and time consuming!), and while Louie does great and actually loves the warm dryer, I'm thinking I may need to give him a little bit of a body clip to help him cool out quicker. He's got one of the thickest coats on the farm and several of his pasturemates have at least a partial clip.
I'm thinking if I do it, we'll start with a very conservative clip like a neck and chest clip (mostly just chest though as Louie doesn't have a hood for his blanket), and if needed, we'll do a low trace clip. I found a great website with lots of clip patterns: http://www.peasridge.co.uk/clipper-advice/clippers-clipping-advice-horses-types-of-horse-clips.shtml
Anyone have any thoughts, tips or tricks to body clipping?
