Ah, this happened to Sour as well this year! Not as badly, thank goodness- but it matted up on her belly and chest. I was able to work most of them out with some conditioner and my hands though!

I also did a little around his ears to see how he would do and it didn't even phase him. He was more mad at me because I would let him play with the extension cord. Lol.
LOL, cute, and ummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm..... Is that horse in your house????

It's got to be something with their first shed-out. We had three yearling geldings here last spring that all did that. Our little Gotland was a ridiculous matted bison for MONTHS until he finally blew coat. The two still here this year are going through their second shed and are totally normal, and that includes our little bison.

I wonder if it's just their bodies throwing energy into growth at that stage, rather than coat, or if we're missing something to nutritionally boost them. They seem to come out of it fine and not suffer any effects afterward. ^shrug^

lol yes!! I had let him loose to graze in the yard and the french doors open in the living room and he decided that he wanted to come find me so he walked into the house. My face looks funny because I was trying not to laugh since my mom was not happy, even though she was taking pictures.

Ya, I have talked to my neighbor whom I got Dez from and they have the same issue with their first shedding. I actually got so frustrated that I took a clippers and cut the mats out since it was warm enough her to do so.

It happens with horses that have a more fine hair shaft. Easily mats. My old gelding is that way too.

I find a good shedding blade works well.

Nothing compares to a Sleekez, all pale by comparison for shedding out coats! I thought the furminator was good until I bought this, I spit upon the furminator now! If your horse has loose hair, it will remove it, all in one good brushing and is easy on your hands. Dang, wish I invented this thing!
