YES! My horse is the exact same way right now. She's stubbornly clinging to some of her leftover winter hairs and looks very patchy. It's absolutely normal, don't worry. It'll all be gone in no time.

*Grooming is also a lot easier after a good ride. Working up a bit of a sweat helps with shedding, I find.

Two of ours are completely shed out. Vida and Saro are still a bit splotchy. Every time I walk by them I have to pick at them pulling out little clumps

ha ha its driving me crazy LOL I've had my horse for round 3 yrs and shedding always drives me crazy.. Im sure everyone else to LOL. I hope everything sheds before her shedded part starts bleaching. She's an amazing black horse but the sun runs it all turning it dark brown LOL. And sometimes difrent shades. Also on her legs she still has very very long hairs that I can't wait till they fall out lol. Ooo the life of a shedding horse. Hair all over the place ah haha

Vida is a beautiful black right now too but will fade in the sun. I started looking for fly sprays and sprays in general that contain a sunscreen. That really seemed to help with the fading. Vetrolin Shine works great

so do you spray it every where like neck face ect. Or just the tail??? Because if that keeps her from fading thatd be awsome. I guess a fly sheet would help WAY LOTS to.

Caleb still has some of his winter hairs on his bum they are such a pretty colour, almost gold I am going to miss his winter colours.

There's a horse at my barn who is appy/canadian and he looks so strange, he has "dapples" of summer coat all over his body and he looks like he has a weird leopard pattern or something. He has the strangest shedding pattern I've ever seen.

I spray her all over. Just a light mist seemed to do the job, then brush it in.
I also started wiping the sweat off when I take off the saddle. Just a bucket of plain water and a sponge.
My mare fades really bad in the saddle and girth area if I don't rinse the sweat off after a ride.
