Full body clip - Do you leave a spot by the withers unclipped?
I'm taking my horse to someone to consign her to be sold and she requested she be full body clipped. Does anybody full body clip but leave an unclipped area by their withers/back for extra protection for the saddle?
I have never left a spot of unclipped hair there before but a vet this past winter said she didn't leave any unclipped hair and her saddle left behind permanent white marks of hair just behind her withers (and it was a custom fitted saddle so it fits her mare well).
If anyone does leave some unclipped hair there, please show pics! Thanks! :)
