RE: clipping

That's what I always heard as well, that you are clipping the new hair and
it will be short and stubby and not pretty.  Having just clipped my shedding
horses, short stubby hair that doesn't shine is a good trade off for a horse
that comes in from a ride cooled out and does not look like a total mudball
coming up from pasture.  Wished I'd done it in November!
