I think my doctor thinks I'm cracked. 4 or 5 years ago he asked me if I was getting enough fiber in my diet. I asked him if horse hair qualified as I figured I'd eaten several pounds since the horses had started shedding. I no longer try to shed them out. I was good enough to provide them with plenty of sand to roll in and it's up on a hill and the first thing to show up in the Spring.

Henny is beginning to shed out. I curry him every night and I have to wack the hair out of it a couple times. I find it funny that his white spots has longer hair LOL. I can't wait to see how he sheds out. This will be the first time shedding out a winter coat and not a foal coat for him. I am sooooo excited to see what color my brownskin the s out!

Up here in Calgary it's still well below freezing at night, but my horse has definitely started to shed ... I can't wait to see what his summer coat looks like 'cause he already had most of his winter coat when I got him. Hoping it means we get another lovely summer!

Reeco only grew his winter coat in november and started shedding it early jan. It is still coming out. I'm not sure what he is shedding though because his winter coat is about a thick as most horses summer coat

This is him in full winter coat



If he starts shedding much more I'll turn the hoover on him!!!

RIDE your horse FORWARDS and keep him STRAIGHT

Other than daily currying, any good suggestions for helping them shed out faster? :)

lol! The horse I learned to ride on was a sweet spoiled rescue who was vacuum'd on a weekly basis... I'm not sure if my silly ay-rab would stand for that! ;) Hmmm....

my mare always starts in January and I never understand why especially since this is ND and happens to be an arctic tundra of freezing cold wind with windchills in the -20s+ when it gets cold out. And yet, she has already started shedding haha but its AWESOME because you know what that means...?! THAT SPRING IS ON THE WAY AHHHH!

random question about shedding...if you moved a horse from the U.S. to say Australia would they still puff up according to the US winter or would their bodies acclimate quickly enough to Aussie weather to not have them look like they just came out of the drier because of such fuzziness?

You have to learn how to fall before you can learn how to ride~
