He is shedding... but it is clear when you look at him that his winter coat is stilll there..... he sheds and I brush and he sheds more but it never goes away.

For what reason, sorry?
Do you know the specifics of that case? Was the horse older than your horse? Don't fret until you have a clear diagnosis.

It sometimes takes months for horses to lose their winter coats. Do you have current photos of your horse and what his coat looks like?
Like I said, the chances of this being fatal are slim next to absolutely none.

I know a horse with cushings. They manage her diet and just do a body clip, and she's fine.
