Major has some hair coming out

I was petting Majors back today, and when I pulled my hand back, it had little clumps of hair stuck to it. They are small clumps but to big for me to think natural shedding. Anybody know what it is?

I thought it was shedding at first...but isnt shedding more like individual gray colored hairs? This was little clumps of straight black hair.

The hair that horses shed is the same color as there coat. So I would think that it was just shedding. Some of the horses at our barn are shedding already so it wouldnt surprise me.

Oh man Sandie is shedding like CRAZY right now!! When I'm done grooming her it looks like it has snowed around her! Lol (and it's also all over my clothes!) The hair seems never ending too...I keep wondering when she's going to stop looking so wooly, since she's obviously shedding so much of her coat!

Does your horses come on in individual clumps like that? Sorry for the dumb questions everyone...this is my first shedding season with my horse

I can pull clumps out if I grab a little section at a time, but normally I just use a shedding blade and/or rubber curry comb and it comes out in clumps that way too. It's similar to a dog that sheds, except way more hair! If I run a gloved hand down her back, my hand will be absolutely covered with hair!!

This might make you feel better...a photo I found online of someone's feet after they groomed their horse in shedding season!! Sandie's not THIS bad, this must have been a pretty wooly horse, but still, horses can shed a little or they can shed a LOT. Is your horse's hair coming out from all over the body, or is it localized to just one spot?
