I have noticed my mare is beginning to shed (Not enough to break out the curry comb tho). She has a really velvety soft winter coat and I am really excited to see her summer coat. We got her in winter, so this is like Christmas for me

Well, the haffie has started to shed,too. I ordinarily do NOT appreciate high speed wind...but when it comes to shedding time, it is your best friend...just remember your safety glasses to protect you from kamikaze hairs. :)

There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.

Biscuit has been shedding for about a month. OMG he wasn't even that fuzzy but hair is going EVERYWHERE. The more I brush the more he sheds. Last week my cousin's black horse rubbed his face all over Biscuit and he came away with half his face blonde!!

I'm going to make a miniature horse with all that fur soon.

My mare's been shedding for about a week and a half now. It's kind of funny, because she really did NOT grow a winter coat at all, but she's shedding like crazy now

I was out at the horses last weekend. They're not shedding yet. I'm actually happy about that because we are getting a big storm right now. It's so bad that my boss told me (and my sister) not to come in to work.

My horse is shedding, but its still in the 20s and 30s here! She has clumps of hair just sitting on her and no matter how much you brush, you just can't get it off, and it's awful for me, because i am allergic to horses (i just love horses to much to give them up because of my allergies)

-would like to know CS's secret shedding formula- I have a welsh pony who is a wooly mammoth right now LOL.

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
