Well, it decided to snow today, so don't any of my boys will be shedding soon! Haha! Sometimes I really hate my "wonderful" and "predictable" Montana weather. :P

My "wooly beast", hahaha, is really letting the hair go. I come in covered in red hair. It sticks to my neck and cleavage. She also hates the static shocks she gets every once and a while, hah! Luckily we don't have much hair to go. We only blanketed her when it was below freezing, but for some reason she didn't grow any hair this winter. Is that a genetic thing, or environmental?



She looks slick, but there's a lot of hair coming off! Especially her tummy, back, and butt.

Anybody else with paints/pintos have their horse's white shedding more than their color? Henny's white has longer and thicker hair and it's shedding out more than his colored areas.

Always happens to me and the paints. I have no idea why the white hair does that. Sometimes I think it's because it's just easier to see when it sheds. But I definitely get that on the more spotty mares.

Maybe because it's like light colors in the summer and dark colors in the winter? The white patches might be colder, so the hair grows thicker to compensate? It's pretty funny lol.

YES!!! My horse has much longer and thicker hair in the white areas. That's very interesting that it's not just my horse who does that.

Yes, I have two Black & White Paint Mares and the girls white fur is shedding much worse the her black fur. Yes her white fur is longer as well. I noticed this too with their manes. Mea's mane is partly black and the white strands grow faster then the black strands. I also have a Sorrel solid Paint and her fur will not shed no where near as much as my other two girls.

I always noticed this with my paints too!

However I have a pally mare now and she just looks funny. I have never seen a horse shed as much as her or grow as much hair in the winter. You would think she had never spent a day in the cold in her life! In reality though she has lived here in ND her whole life, and yet she still puts on more hair in the winter than the horses that are brought up here from the warmer states. Odd.....

^^^ Our bay tobiano's white does this, too, but our almost all white tovero does not.
