I had the opposite problem of you guys. Sonya had finished all her shedding out at the end of Febuary, and I live in Canada! She did have a blanket on from the end of November until March tho, and she was preggo, so her body probably thought it was time to shed because she was so warm.

The TB I am exercising this year still has all his guard hair and smaller hairs. Its crazy. We I use the shedding blade on him he doesnt even shed. It might be time to break out the clippers soon because he is starting to sweat on warm days when he is just standing in the cross-ties getting groomed.

2 of my guys are really, really funny looking. Their neck and chest are bare naked! Their butt and barrel are totally fuzzy with long winter hair that is coming off in clumps.
I know they have rain rot and we are trying to deal with that, but they have never looked this funny. This year was a really wet, cold year!
My other guy is shedding totally normal and has pretty much shed totally off.
They are all kept in the pasture and put in the stall only on the worst weather at night. We live in N. Georgia.
I bought one of the furinator (sp) and worked down there on them for about an hour yesterday and that little tool did a great job. It was well worth the money.
