Shedding out summer coat

Well I guess summer is ending and fall is coming, this week my mare started shedding and today it was defiantly noticeable. Anyone else's horses shedding yet?

My Arab always has started shedding ahead of everyone - this year he started the 2nd week of July

Two of the TWH's started around the first week of August with my eldest TWH (with EMS) starting the end of August.

And I live in southern Middle Tennessee where the winters really aren't winters

Mine is in a constant state of shedding, I think.

Cheyenne started shedding last week. I can't wait until she's got her winter coat. Horses are so cute when they are all fuzzy. :)

Yup! My mare started a week and a half ago and my gelding started a few days ago. Hope this doesn't mean we're going to get a heavy snow.

Yep, my girl is already hairy for winter! Haha
But yeah, her winter coat is already to that length where you can see it. She's getting a bit fuzzy under the chin and looking up at her belly, it's super noticeable.
When I hose her off, after she gets sweaty on a ride/lunging, you can see the hair kinda slide around in the water.

I'm not ready for summer to be done!!

I think Alli started to shed a couple of weeks ago, but the extra hair only lasted a couple of days then stopped coming out so much. I guess she decided summer isn't over yet! **** right too, we've had no summer at all this year!!

I love Alli's winter coat. She's my big teddy bear in winter XD Honestly, I had never seen so much hair on a tb until I met Alli! But I think I'm going to have to clip her this year *sob* I don't want to shave my fuzzy little winter pony!!

I WISH mine were shedding out for fall and getting ready for winter. It's still 100+ around here for a little bit yet. By the end of this month though, probably they'll start to hair up and I'll start wishing for summer again! LOL

My arab would would be fully shed out in July when the others in late May. He'd have that sleek glossy look for 3 weeks then it would take on that velvet look which signalled that his winter coat was already coming in. Depressing or what!
