Ricci's white parts shed a lot faster than her black parts. Gracie is pretty sleek up top, her belly is furry, and she's still got her feathers, but other than that, she's pretty smooth. I also contribute the oddness you are experiencing to the weather.

Just talked to my vet about this about an hour ago.

He said it is completely normal for this time of year. Especially if your horse has not been blanketed. The body retains the hair for as long as possible and when it's sure there is no more winter, it just POOF gets rid of all of it.

Haha, Dobe is the only one of mine that is shedding out a little weird. His neck, head, shoulders, and back are completely slicked off but his belly and butt are still fuzzy. At least it makes him look not quite so front-heavy LOL.

LOL. That must look really funny.

Here in South Africa we are busy going into winter now, so all the horses here are busy getting all their fuzzies. When spring comes along I must check and see if the same happens with their coats.

Wooty looks horrible. I was just saying last night that I'm not riding into town again until she sheds out completely. Her neck is slick for the most part. The underside of it is still hairy and she has a patch in the middle. Her butt is nice and slick and her face looks goo too. Her shoulders and like most of her back is slick, but her belly and legs are all furry. She looks ridiculous.
