So, as many of you in the Midwest are aware. It's cold. Very cold.
Anyway, Star has started shedding a little bit, while Lucky hasn't. Star has a longer and thicker coat than Lucky, and is generally healthy. (Some respiratory problems, an ulcer, minor arthritis- but it's all under control). I'm not super worried, since nothing else is wrong; well, she's cranky, but I am too with this vicious winter. Oh, and both horses live outside. They have a run-in shelter/lean-to.
She isn't acting cold, and when I feel behind her front legs, the base of her ears, and her underbelly, she's nice and warm. We've been making sure they get lots of hay. In the past, Star's coat has grown in sooner, and shedded out sooner than Lucky's. (Star is a NSH, lucky is a Paint)
