Curly Coat

Theres a horse at my barn with a THIN curly coat. It's not exactly "curly", more like wavy/cowlick. I have heard of Cushing's, done my fair amount of research on it, and I don't believe to think that's what it is. Her summer coat in nice and slick with no curls. She's also shedding like crazy already. She only has them on her shoulders, chest, and above her hocks. I'm not sure if that's just the way her coat grows in the winter, that's what I'm thinking. But just to get everyones opinion on it. Mandy is a 5 year old QH by the way.:) Thanks so much!

Sounds like that's just the way her winter coat grows.

I have a curly mare that is curly in winter, smooth in summer. Just the way some are. There are differing degrees of curly to the various coats too. I've seen some with near ringlets that stay curly year round.
