Just body clipped for the first time ever. Horse is a yak and 70 degrees in March is killing him. Anyway, since I'm new to this, I'm stressing a bit and worrying about him getting chilled. It's supposed to be in the low 50's at night and he's in a stall - should I sheet him or do you think he'll be ok naked? Trying not to obsess too much, but going from yak to hairless might be a shock to his system.
I have the same problem. I have an old one that is an absolute yak, but she stays outside. These past few days, that have been so warm, she's been sweating a lot and she's not much of a sweater. I'm afraid to clip her and then it get chilly and she is old and naked and chilly. I can blanket her, but that doesn't help her neck and legs and belly and after having so much hair, I'm afraid she would get cold easily.
My 24 year old is sheeted right now, my 11 month old is not. Both are body clipped. If it cools down to a more seasonal temp I will sheet them both. If it gets real cold I will put a medium on the old guy but the baby stays much warmer on her own accord it seems.
