Horse losing its hair
I have a Rocky Mountain mare, about 5 years old. I went out to saddle her the other day and when I went to groom her before putting on the saddle, I saw that her hair was coming out in huge clumps. I could rub my hand on her and get big hand-fulls of hair. Under it was shorter, darker hair, so it was not exposing the skin, but it sure seem very odd to be losing hair like that at this time of the year. She is on her feed like normal and doesn't show any other signs of distress, so I'm at a loss. Any ideas?
