Hi all! I had the same experience this year, especially with my copper gelding! I agree with MHFoundation Quarters. It seems to be weather related. And not all horses are doing it. Out of my three horses, only the one who usually sheds first is doing it. I just support his new hair growth now by stimulating blood circulation and getting the dry flakes off. A good natural grooming brush is best (I like the one with raised edges). There is a sale for natural grooming brushes going on here
. Just 'like' the fb page and you will see the sale.
