*sigh* yep, my horses are shedding their summer coat and growing longer hair too. I actually noticed their hair was getting longer around the first part of August. I also am not crazy about how sticky the flies are now too. It could only mean one thing, my area is in for a cold winter! Yuck!

Saddlestrings - don't tell me that- " how sticky the flies are now too. It could only mean one thing, my area is in for a cold winter!" That means we are too.

My horsie would start to grow his winter coat, and we would need to clip him as early as October while living in Colorado. He's since moved to Texas, and I'm wondering if it will be the same? I know it's a combination of the days growing shorter and the weather growing colder... Will he still grow a wooly coat when it's so much hotter there?

While brushing out my lesson pony the other day I did notice that he was shedding up a storm!

Fingers crossed winter does not come too early here.

My mustang and my yearling filly are already getting in a good portion of their fluffy winter coats. Makes me really wonder how bad this winter is going to be....

I am in for the same concern. The horse with the thinnest coat at the moment isn't shedding too bad, but the other one is shedding everywhere, and a lot.. I am getting scared of the winter - we usually get a month of average -17C, a few days of lower than -20C, and even sometimes it drops below -30C... I hope they grow their coats well, I will have feeds prepared, and buy another winterblanket.. in case my slightly ribby baby doesn't put enough fat on for that cold.

I'm with you on that one. There was Snow that fell down in Alberta today . That only means one thing, Winter is on it's way and it's WAY TO EARLY. Usually no snow till the end of October.
