Mine have started as well. Time to put the fleece jackets away for awhile lol. I just hope they aren't jumping the gun, it's still a bit early.

My Arab started about five weeks ago.

The three Walkers have started in the last week or so but mildly.

I hate to see big shedding so early as my area has been known to get a whopper of a last winter storm in March. The only snow storm I had to plow was the second week of March, in 2009.

That's saying a lot when one only lives an hour north of the Alabama border

I've barely seen a trace of shedding on any of the horses at my barn:( But I am so incredibly excited for summer you wouldn't even believe! Back to the outdoor arena, showing, and slick summer coats!

No on is losing a single hair yet :( and won't be for a while. They tend to start slightly in April up here. Luckily this year non of my lot got half the winter coat they usually get. I am kind of excite as I am hoping my now 2 year old varnishes out this year like his mum and can't wait to see what my now 1 year old looks like.

Never judge a book by their cover, also never judge a pony by their height. They tend to be big personalities in little packages.

No shedding here! Something to be glad about, because they'd freeze! I can wait :)

I noticed this about two weeks ago. It's not very much, but I'll take it! My dog on the other hand is shedding like crazy. I have dog hair tumble weeds going through my place, can't keep on top of it.

This is what happens when you have democrats in office

One of my 4 has started. I'm with Foundation Quarters though. Seems a tad bit early. Even here in TX we've been known to have that odd ball ice storm well into March. I was ready for spring back in December though! LOL!

But my mare and her 3 yr old son haven't started shedding at all. They are finer coated than the Mustang and have less hair to loose, so maybe that is why.
My mustang could win the furriest competition at the local shows. And he hasn't shed a single hair! It's driving me crazy!

All of mine have They've been starting for about 3 weeks and my TWH has been slowly shedding since Jan. I'm so excited since I got him later in the year. And the funny thing is there's still a lot of snow on the ground.

My strange, freak-of-nature horse gets her winter coat about a month before the other horses and then sheds it out within a month and a half. So, most of her's has been long gone for awhile!
