We just had a few days of spring weather preview, so all the horses at my barn have started shedding a little. Hopefully they don't get too far into it... there's a chance of snow later this week!

I wish my horses were shedding, but there's not even a hint of fur coming off!

well, Im right there with you I guess. I live upon a ridge where the wind blows 24/7 and its COLD. Mine will start shedding about mid april and then we will have to spray them off with a water hose for about four weeks straight and hope that our walkers loose that four inch long woolly mammoth layer that they usually hang on to till july.

I'd like to go to Montana for the summers and have those nice mild days instead of spending from May to September over 100, but I'd like to keep a winter house here in Texas. After all, I can't complain about this winter. Average daily high temp has been in the low to mid 50's all winter long. Had a couple of cold spurts here and there where it snowed and dropped down to highs in the teens and 20's, but those have been few and far between. Also had some days that were well over 70.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Still have a wooly mammoth. Boy, I can't even begin to imagine how much hair I will have to remove this year. I've never seen a coat this thick on a TB.

Yes all three of my girls are shedding, Gypsy is the most. I think they are shedding more this year then they have in the past. I even get covered head to toe in fur!! Heck it's all over the seats in my '11 Silverado! When Gypsy roams the barn with me when I'm there she will come up to me and ask me to itch her. When I scratch her itchy spot my had to completely covered!! Soon this cold will be gone and trails here we come!!
