Try giving her a beer a day in her feed-I use the cheap stuff, a 6 pack should do it. I have had one that was like this-altho I know this sounds weird it works.

Signature undergoing edits. Please standby.......

Daylight determines coat length. Give it a few week and there will be hair all over the place. If too warm, she'll lie down to cool off, if outside.

That sounds just like my TWH, who passed away from Cushing's disease. I had to shave him all over in the Spring the year before he died bc he wouldn't shed his coat. I suggest you have your Vet check for it. I DIDN"T, unfortunately. It is manageable, if caught early. I understand that it is a form of diabetes. Sorry! =(

Thanks, im pretty sure she doesn't have cushings from everything iv read she's too young. She has started to shed a bit. We are going to go ahead and shave her anyway just so she's a little more comfortable
