Shedding out summer coat?

My boy is lightly shedding out his summer coat. ( 4-6 HAIRS EVERY PINCH)

All over his body. I wonder what could be causing this?

I am thinking it could be the fly spray? Or an indication of an early fall?

Temps have been in the 90's all week.

Here's a photo of him today.

Taht horse looks like he is in full summer coat. They never stop shedding completely.

He is a pretty horse albeit a bit fat.

Trust me he is not fat, he just has the genetics for a huge barrel! There is no fat anywhere on him. He's extremely fit.
