I wore my carhartt coveralls and muck boots over my work clothes this morning when went to take care of my horses ,I still managed to get horse hair all over the work outfit! Kind of embarrassing to show up in the office and everyone point out that you apparently got dressed at the barn this morning!

We've been having ridiculously warm weather (when it's supposed to be the coldest time of year for us!) and I noticed today that one of the girls has started to shed, just barely. Normally that's not happening until April/May!

Hmmm. Well, my appyX started shedding about two weeks ago, but my haffie filly hasn't shed a single hair, and she has the thicker coat by far. It's getting warm enough, so I figure the haffie just isn't very well calibrated. :) We shall see.

My miniature wooly mammoth has been blowing out gobs of coat since Jan. And still has enough on to not be shivering in 40 degrees. Im not sure he will ever slick out, and the BO is tired of getting balls of hair collecting on her back porch.

Jax is still shedding... I tried to curry him out today before his chiro appointment, but to no avail. By the end of the adjustment, he had shed clumps of hair all over himself... and the poor woman's hands! Hehe.

My Paint and my half Arab have been shedding for at least a month. My Canadian has just started to release some of her wooly mammoth-like coat this week. Just got 24 cm of snow two days ago. But, I remember that the groundhog has predicted an early spring so I'm putting all my faith in the semi-large rodent's predilection.

This came off my horse a few days ago...

... and I just got another identical pile off him today. He will be bald by spring.
