Hi, my two are shedding aswell. The worst is my grey welsh section A! I use to think he looked like a teddy bear, but after being around him for 5 mins with a brush in my hand, its me that looks like one!!!!!
The weather is that mild, it makes it so hard to decide rugs or no rugs too!

A couple of our horses are shed out already. Mike will not fully shed out I expect until july at least. And the rest will need maybe a month.

Well I feel better now, although I don't blanket mine so I hope we don't get too many more below freezing days. Seems though they do this every year, and actually I didn't their coats got as shaggy this year. Maybe its just me but it seems milder.
