Here are some of my minis UNshaved:

If you show her, you'll have to shave her. But other than that, you won't HAVE to.

They will shed off on thier own, they take forever to do this and lots of currying helps, but shaving them is the quicker way to shed them out, also slightly easier, at least if they do not mind the clippers. You do not have to shave her though as it was said, they will shed down on their own.

You don't have to shave, but it does take awhile to get non fuzzy. I show as does Mini Horse, so Spring means the clippers are out, hair flying, and a week worth of hair in places that was never ment to have hair! She is an adorable fur ball.LOL
Right now I wish I was in CA, BURRR

Thanx all ! She is a little doll. She ran with the big horses today! Talk about having a blast..she thought she was the cat's meow! The buckskin gelding has fallen in love with her, but the palomino mare is a bit jealous. I thought it would be the other way around...shows what I know...lol

Soooo glad to hear that I won't have to shave since I won't be showing. I love currying the hair off of the big horses once they start shedding out for the summer!!!

California is certainly the sunny state...esp where I live, although this afternoon was a bit chilly, although I am sure that my chilly and your guys' chilly are no where near the same! My husband and son are building Annie a stall so that she can be put away when it rains. With her coat, she would be soaked to the bone before she even knew she was wet...brrr

Again, thanx for all the comments and advice!
