Had the immense pleasure yesterday of deciding to brush them down again, uber windy, and had just put Vaseline on my lips.... Need I say more? :)

A couple of weeks ago I only had one shedding. Now all 4 have started. My paint is shedding so bad, we were riding into the wind today and left a trail of hairs floating behind us on both sides. He's getting pretty serious. LOL!

You just have to see your distance...you don't have to like it.

Some of mine have started, some haven't. We still got at least another month to go of what COULD BE miserable winter, though.
Hoepfully this is a good sign, though.

My seven started a few weeks ago, but Excel especially is a hair machine right now. I can't run my hand down his neck without catching hair on my gloves. Molly....well, she covers herself with mud on a daily basis--she could be bald, for I know.

Off topic, but the farrier came yesterday to reset Excel's shoes and I rode him for the first time in a month today. In keeping with my vow to give up stirrups for Lent (though I'm not Catholic....), I hacked him without. I'm going to have some killer thighs by Easter; he was HOT!

My horse is lightly starting to shed. (:
Yes! I'm soooo sick of winter, lol.

For the wretched of the earth there is a flame that never dies.
Even the darkest night will end and the sun will rise.

I hate when they tease you!! We had a few weeks of warm weather and Henny was really beginning to let go of his hair. This week it's getting down to the 30's at night and he grew more fuzz! That hair is not budging right now. He needs the hair though, so I guess it's a good thing he's holding onto it.

There on the tips of fair fresh flowers feedeth he; How joyous his neigh,
there in the midst of sacred pollen hidden, all hidden he; how joyous his neigh
