My shaggy cob has white socks on his hind feet and has suffered from extreme mud fever in past. He lives out, has no stabe or shelter only windbreaks and the ground can be muddy. Should I trim his thinck feathers off or will they protect him? I was going to wash them, dry them and then put vaseline on them but then he'd be turned out straight away. Would I be able to dry them completely and would this be a daily job? Thanks so much.
