I notice that my horses with extra thick coats start shedding sooner than the ones with thinner coats. Anyone else? Possibly the horses that are more sensitive grow more/thicker coat and start losing it sooner?
Hm... I don't think so...
My horse has had a med winter blanket on all winter and if it got colder I put liners on him. So he was always nice and warm and he had a decent ish winter coat... and he's still shedding... They come out easily... esp when I curry..
Mine isnt shedding yet, thank god as he doesnt have a thick winter coat to begin with. Over the past 2 weeks we were getting +temps and it will be dropping to -15 celcius by the end of the week. My one dog on the other hand is blowing his coat. He did this last year when we hit +5 for a week in january, basically the same weird weather we have been having this year.
YES! I took out shadow dancer and fiji and cambria today and gave them complete groomings...you would not believe the amount of fur I got off of them! The ground look like one of those shag carpets by time I was done :)
My horse started shedding last week, but now she's stopped. XP I wish she'd keep it up because we have a show coming up soon and she's going to be miserable there (it's a hot area) if she still has a lot of her winter coat left.
I'm in California, and just noticed Sunny shedding some on his rear. It has been in the 40's, no real winter weather, so that could be the cause. Of course, yesterday and today we had snow (2 ft) and freezing temps!
