My horse doesn't have much of a winter coat to shed, but a palimino at my barn was shedding piles the other day, I couldn't believe it, and she is unblanketed and on turnout 24/7. My horse has been blanketed since early December and has a stall, but she is pretty much naked under her medium weight. The metal curry combs tend to grab alot more hair than the rubber ones, I've noticed

Yeah, my new forest is shedding already, I did wonder about that!
I think its normal really, considering she is really hairy anyway!

Mine are shedding pretty decently.

I noticed my magnolia tree was budding so every thing must think it's spring. Back to single digits again in a few days. :)

I would love to hope that spring is on the way! But its going to snow A TON here and get really cold again this coming week. Ugh. Hopefully my boys don't get too naked before it warms up.

We have a big tree with pink buds on it already to :) Can't wait for spring.

I've noticed that my horse is shedding, too. And it's been really cold here lately — teens and low twenties.

My little fuzzy llama of a horse is shedding too. I'm glad cus last year it took him until mid June to lose his furries. Its been unusually warm here, warmest January on record.

Starlite really has nothing TO shed LOL, Dream is shedding though....weird since they've both been blanketed since October, but Dream was a big fuzzy bear without a blanket so I guess it'd be silly to expect her not to grow SOME type of winter coat this year...even under a medium weight blanket.
