[RC] Clipping Horses - Rebecca Hackworth

While I hail from California, I do live in the foothills where it is
snowing as I type this, I do have a suggestion to consider.

I think it depends on how you clip not so much where you clip.  I use
something called a "plucking" blade or "skip tooth" blade.  It is
sort of the equivalent of a #5 blade.  The key is it leaves more hair
on the horse.  This is not a surgical clip.  It is a working clip. 
When I clip, this is what I use.  Keeps them cooler when working and
warmer when not working.  And much easier to clean up after working.
