Hairs Standing Up

The other day I noticed Jubilee's coat hairs were sticking up a little tiny bit. Not just a few hairs in random places but in big patches. It wasn't really that noticeable, but when I brushed her, the hairs weren't lying completely flat. Then, yesterday when I brushed her, they WERE lying flat. I don't know if this is even important even to bring up as an issue, but I was just wondering what it could be. I was always told that hairs sticking up isn't a good sign. Was it just dirt or because of heat or sweat?

Does she have a rug on when she is turned out? Sometimes when misty is rugless and it has rained overnight (and washed the dirt and grease from her coat) her fluff is static and she is a bit chilly :P as long as Jubilees fur isnt usually static there is nothing to worry about give Jubilee a hug from me n moo :P She is such a cutie

It could've been just static. That's normal, I don't think it's anything to worry about.
