Strange loss of hair....?
My uncle has a mare, Kitty, who is pregnant and just shedding out her winter coat. But she's losing a lot of hair... practically going bald, actually. Her mane and tail aren't shedding out at all, but her body fur is starting to look kind of like when you soak a horse... it's really thin, and comes out by the handful. She's been pregnant before and never done anything like this, nor has she when she's shedding.
He's having the vet out in a week, because that's the earliest he could come out, but I was just curious if any of you had ever experienced something similar...? It's really strange.
