My bad! I guess I wasn't picky where it went, so long as it wasn't here...

I think my two missed the memo. They're shedding, but VERY slowly even though it was 82 yesterday! I guess they knew it would be 'cold' today xD

Everyone in your life is meant to
be in your journey, but not all of
them are meant to stay till the end.

most of mine are slicked off now. a few still shedding out some, but those grow heavy coats in winter. I may give baths this weekend , in the 80's . Summer will be here a little to soon.. I really dislike the triple digit summer heat anymore. 105 and up makes a person want to melt. at least we usually dont have high humidity. dont like it humid, dont like the snow .dont like the heat dont like a ton of rain . where oh where to go ... lol..

Is attempting to comb out the loose hair a rite of passage? A stupid ritual we do every Spring. I've eaten my share so for the past 5 or so years I let nature take care of it.

My mare rolls a lot so she gets a good part of hers off, but I love grooming to much. Plus seeing that summer coat finally peeking through all of that fluff is such a good sight :)

I brush and brush and brush until no more hair comes off, but then run my hand over her and I have another handful of hair...WHERE IS IT ALL COMING FROM!?! She should be BALD by now!

I dont have pictures but wanted to add-- when i brushed our leopard this afternoon he clogged the metal curry-- i had no idea that was possible!

i put the curry to the horse and from the elbow down couldnt tell where the arm ended or the horse began.
