Hey! So, I have a large hairy cob, with amazing feathers, but, because of the crappy weather he is swimming in mud. The field is a mess. I'm thinking maybe I should clip off his legs??? Hoseing doesn't work, it's like thick matted sausages. Only way is to break them up once they dry out but that would mean keeping him in over 48 hours and he HATES it! He'll be in for a couple of days now because it's horrendous out there so I'll be able to break them up and brush them out but... should I clip them?! And if I do how high do I clip? He's hairy all over and not really doing anything until spring when he's only a light hack, and if possible I want to keep him without a rug! I feel if I just stop at his knees or his elbows he's going to look daft! But if I do his belly and chest like a very low trace clip (??) I'll end up having to rug him if it's really cold/wet!? Any advice greatly appreciated, please no crappy comments I'm new to these really hairy types!!
