    Default Shipping from Lexington, KY to Sarasota, FL, body clip before or after shipping?

    My horses are shipping next weekend from Lexington to Sarasota. I will be body clipping myself so can do them before shipping or when they get to Florida. Just wondering what would be best to keep them comfortable! Thanks!
    Finally in FL, loving the weather but still missing the Green Mountains!!

    I would clip after I got there, that way you don't have to worry about having to take blankets off if it gets to warm in the trailer. Hopefully it will be a lot warmer in Florida as well making it a little easier on the horses, not getting cold while you are clipping them.

    Agree with this. As a groom for an ULR, we always shipped ours down furry-- no worry about too hot or too cold on the trailer and stopping to change blankets.
