    Oh no, not really any different....they shed and you you can bush it just like any other horse. I like to keep the sheddings in spring cause it's a lot like wool. And I like to spin wool The mane and tail are another story. Some curlies will shed them in the summer, kinda like a old style appy, and grow it back in the winter, some keep one or the other or both. Rue keeps both, and most native curlies will have a double mane, on both sides of the neck, really pretty. When I had Rue, I did not bush his mane or tail on a regular basis, I left it in spirals and just picked it clean and washed when needed. However, his current keeper bushes them both, so it's all frizzy and his mane has broke and become short up to his hocks!!! SAD! It took a long time to get the boys tail down to his feet. Oh, well. I guess all that really matters is that he is happy and healthy!!
