Does anyone else get incredably furry horses?

In the winter, as you all know, horses get more, and longer fur. Every horse does. Anyway, before a show one time, me and my two friends and fellow competitors were grooming our horses, Night Heat, Bishop and Love Story. We were grooming fo about 10 minutes, when we looked down, and it looked like it had snowed brown fur!! So we had an idea, fetched a bucket, and as we groomed we filled the bucket.

We groomed for about two hours I think, and when we were done we had filled FOUR buckets with horse fur!!

Do any of you get like, really fluffy buffy horses? LOL

Every girl wants their own LOVE STORY, I found mine... :)

that's hilarious !

My pony scout gets a really thick coat ! He never has to wear a blanket in the winter which is really nice. He's only about half shed out right now, I've been brushing him so much !! He hates being brushed so the barn is pretty much torture right now =P

Willie becomes a woolly mammoth! It's ridiculous, but I don't mind. Since I probably won't be showing anymore it's not really a big deal to me, and besides, he's kept outside year round, and in Colorado it gets pretty chilly. Since I don't blanket, he needs that winter coat, even if it is a hassle when springtime comes around and he starts shedding!

None of the pictures I currently have of him are from winter, that would be why it doesn't look that thick. Trust me, it's a nightmare when he starts shedding.
