Mine is shedding like crazy as well and I tend to wear polartec fleece jackets which the hair just loves to stick to..I am washing them nearly daily. I am glad to see this thread start up actually as I was worried my boy was shedding too early and too much :). The curry comb gets clogged with just a few swipes at this point, I won't even go in to the brushes, and the barn staff has pointedly left out more brooms :)
Still, the new coat coming in underneath is nice and short, silky smooth and shiny. Can't wait for the first full bath of the year though to really get the coat nice and clean.
At this point, I am only using the rubber curry comb. After one or two swipes, I'm pulling out a thick layer of hair from it. I tried to use the other brushes after the curry comb but they were still getting filled up and I said forget it!
I'm not enjoying all the extra brushing that I've been doing but I know for sure that my girls think I'm the best thing since sliced bread! They follow me around if I've got the brush out.
I think they started earlier this yes, don't they?
I don't care as much about my qh shedding (she doesn't have THAT much of coat), but my paint is just OMG! It's long and white, and those hairs get everywhere and don't want to leave.
My little paint is the worst of the two and sounds exactly like yours. There were so many balls of hair on the ground after I brushed her out, it looked like some small animal had exploded. Also, Brandy kept sticking her nose into the hair balls and getting them stuck to her face.

LOL that's awesome!
I get to miss flying hairball season! No burning eyes or hair in my mouth, woo!
