Oh, when will the shedding end?

I had my boy blanketed all winter and he still seems to have grown and impressive coat!

He's been shedding for almost 2 months now, making huge piles of fur every brushing session! Oh it's such a hassle, the hair gets all over the saddle pad, girth, and saddle, all over my clothes! The shedding blade does nothing to help our situation!

So I wanted to hear from you guys, when do your horses generally stop their shedding?

It was unusually cold here this winter and our mares just started their shedding about a week ago. Normally it takes them about 2 months to fully shed out.

On the sixth day, God created the Quarter Horse.
On the seventh day, he Painted the good ones.

Sunny has been shedding for at least a month, and she doesn't seem like she has too much left to go! :]]

Haha...when I read this, I was like '?????!'. Then I saw you're from Australia.

And it seems that my guy is almost done with his shedding, thank goodness! Hang in there folks, the end is nigh.

Cowboy never grew a winter coat D8 So he had a blanket all winter. Thankfully it didn't get cold enough to layer two blankets (had to do that last year!!!)

Everyone else did, and everyone is shedding. Party time, EXCELLENT!

I was just complaining about this. My horse is gray and it seems everywhere I look there is gray hair. He is done shedding on his shoulders and neck for the most part, but he is still shedding on his barrel and rump. I am so ready for him to be sleek and shiny everywhere!
