The main thing to keep in mind is that they don't take long to kick in and they don't last forever so my advice is – get the horse as clean as possible (wash the day before if possible) so your clippers have a good chance, have your overalls already on and have the extension lead and clippers set up and ready to go. Xylazine: On average, a regular 500kg horse needing moderate sedation for a blanket clip will need approximately 3ml, with a top up 15 minutes later of another 3ml.
Xylazine works well for first time horses or those that are a little scared.
