    It is upon us!

    It sits there, watching us. Waiting for its moment to attack. To make us sneeze. To make us curse ourselves for ever buying a horse and taking on all this work. It litters our barns and makes sweeping a hastle. Anyone cought on yet? SPRING SHEDDING!!!!!!!!:shock : Well, what do you guys do to help with the "curry comb waffles" as I call them? What is your special secret to help the shedding? Ugh March is only a month away.....

    Rug up my pony super heavy over winter. He doesnt grow a winter coat. So no shedding. Yaayyyaaawww!!!

    also, you can put them in a stable with windows/doors closed overnight but a light left on. Then brush like crazy. Just a quick method.

    Last year was my first spring and I just brushed brushed brushed. Oh and bathed... alot. Like once every 2 1/2 weeks I think if it was nice out.....but just during the shedding, through the summer I don't bath that often.

    Don't know about you but it is January here and it is at least 2 months maybe 3 before any shedding is going to happen to my boy.

    Mine don't shed in February.

    Full clip before the hair starts to shed. And then groom like crazy.

    My girl has for some reason started shedding a bit, it's crazy! She's the only one in the stables who has and she had the thinnest winter coat to begin with...
    Well, I'm looking forward to it, since it'll be much easier to keep her clean when she's in her summer coat.

    They are CRAZY expensive, but, I now use the furminator. They work fantastic.

    I rounded down to almost Febuary. And the weather here is strange, so it was 20 degrees on friday and almost 60 today. Our horses are rugged and they still have nice fur coats! Lol nice ideas.

    Haha stormy your weather sounds a bit like mine! One day its 30 then the next its almost 70! But that's just Texas weather. I was wondering where you could find the "curry comb waffles?" Or wait do you just use a regular curry comb I can't remember. I used to use those when I took lessons at my riding instructors place a long time ago.
