Releasing the inner horse from the outer Yak

Zelda the Yak
Just looking at the hairy horses has my clipper fingers itching. So after the big melt turned into the big freeze, I decided to remove at least some of the extra wooliness of my horses. Freedom doesn’t grow a thick winter coat, but Zelda? She looks like a yak. Long, think and I’m sure, very warm. I usually start off with a trace clip in the early spring and keep taking more off as the weather warms up. And no, clipping in the spring does not ruin their summer coat, it just eliminates the shedding.
