Maryland about 20 miles westish of Baltimore. We haven't really HAD a winter this year and all the horses at the barn are shedding like crazy. I know the mechanics indicate the longer days (more light) is what starts the process but our temps have been well above winter normal this year.
My horse is new by 6 weeks now and admittedly he was a little underweight and maybe not quite "full" in the vitamins and minerals area as he was actually starting to shed, not heavily though, back in early Jan when I first saw him. His new coat is much nicer so am guessing the extra TLC is working.
