Pregnant and loosing hair?

My Mini donkey is due ANYtime. And she started loosing her hair yesterday. Not really itching it just falls right out. And now today she has several large bald spots. No bugs either lol if she had any everyone would have them. And shes not really itching. Now last time she was pregnant she did loose some hair towards the end, but not this much. Can hormones make her loose hair?

Well...It's shedding season. If your concerned with it though, contact your vet for an exam.

I just wondered if anyone else had a pregnant mare do this.And its more then shedding. I just spent almost 500.00 having my 2 jacks fixed! The vet fund is dry for a little while lol (unless its an emergency of course) And she is acting fine, eating,drinking,peeing,pooping, running from

Im not an expert but every mare is different when in foal/about to foal. That just might be a normal thing for her. But if you think its serious, I would call your vet.

Good luck with the baby Hope to see some pictures of it soon!
