Summer Haircuts for Equine Seniors
It wasn’t that long ago that everyone at my barn was complaining that it felt far too cold to be outside without the traditional winter “uniform” that consists of article such as coveralls, insulated riding or snow pants, a heavy jacket, numerous under-layers, winter boots, gloves, scarves, hats, and everything between. However lately the conversation around the barn has changed to the rising temperatures, and our bright white legs that are making their first appearances as we don shorts on days we don’t ride. For all intents and purposes, summer has arrived in the Bluegrass.
If temperatures didn’t get too warm, we were able to let Brandy keep her natural haircoat, which helped keep the bugs from eating her alive.
