Does anyone have suggestions on whether it is better to clip or show natural in the show ring. I have a modern pleasure that I have been working hard to get her into a natural show coat. She is very slicked down, but I still have some more work to do with her. I currently have her blanketed and under lights and daily hand strip her. I have my sights set on color class and want to keep her more natural than scalped by clippers, does anyone have any suggestions? I've previously won the AMHR color class, but the Shetland hair is new to me and I want an even more richer color than she previously has. I know I will have to do some clipping, but I don't want the entire body stripped of color. She is a very dark black bay with dapples. She is on an excellent worming regimine and feeding program, but should I keep up with my hand stripping or just buzz her.
