2/24/2010 10:24:03 AM

Wear a rain jacket when grooming to keep the hair off you and in the barn.

Back around Christmas all of my horses started dopping guard hairs. Totally normal and consistent.

2/24/2010 3:05:54 AM

Give them a good, old-fashioned curry, or a quicker and pleasant vacuuming. Then, de-fur yourself.

2/23/2010 4:13:15 PM

Furrminator! My 23 year old Arabian looks like a mammoth every winter!

2/23/2010 4:12:04 PM

I use a dog grooming comb instead of a horse shedding blade. Works well and easier to get the hair o

2/23/2010 4:10:46 PM

Yes indeed they have...but I also worm 6 times a yr.nature talks through our animals and lets us kno

2/23/2010 4:07:45 PM

I use a shedding blade before and after I ride

2/23/2010 4:07:05 PM

one started early January, the others in February

2/23/2010 4:00:50 PM

I can't tell - he is buried under 6 feet of snow!

2/23/2010 4:00:34 PM

For about 1 month, Ontario Canada

2/23/2010 3:54:18 PM

My grey has been shedding for 3 weeks, my bay for about a week. We live in southern Massachusetts.

2/23/2010 3:53:54 PM

I now wish I put blankets on...Aaahhh!

2/23/2010 3:49:20 PM

One is, one isn't!

2/23/2010 3:46:18 PM

What a mess!!

2/23/2010 3:37:24 PM

OMG Yes. She starts as soon as our days get longer.

2/23/2010 3:36:45 PM

It's still too cold in Southern Indiana!

2/23/2010 3:35:35 PM

I put her under lights until 9:00 pm, starting 1/1/2010.

2/23/2010 3:35:17 PM

You're kidding, right??? It's still February, the coldest part of winter!

2/23/2010 3:32:45 PM

Lots of elbow grease

2/23/2010 3:31:38 PM

Groom, groom, groom.

2/23/2010 3:31:32 PM

Only the Shetland, the horses have not

2/23/2010 3:31:04 PM

Probably in the next couple weeks

2/23/2010 3:29:14 PM

Florida ;)

2/23/2010 3:21:58 PM

I'm in the mortheastern part of CT and I noticed yesterday he is starting to shed.

2/23/2010 3:20:45 PM

Illinois

2/23/2010 3:15:41 PM

4 adult horses not shedding, 2 yearlings are. I curry/brush daily once they start shedding

2/23/2010 3:14:23 PM

Shedding begins as a result of lengthening daylight hours. Silly question.

2/23/2010 3:13:27 PM

3 horses 2 shedding one is not...hmmm

2/23/2010 3:11:54 PM

Shedding blocks work best for me. I don't really brush out all the hair until the weather turns warm

2/23/2010 3:11:21 PM

HInesburg Vermont

2/23/2010 3:11:03 PM

He is 29 years old and doesn't shed til May

2/23/2010 3:10:42 PM

just a few hairs though

2/23/2010 3:10:38 PM

Started loosing guard hairs 2 weeks ago. We are in SW Missouri

2/23/2010 3:07:27 PM

Only mainly the one's who had a thicker coat originally.

2/23/2010 3:04:54 PM

Keep your mouth shut :o)

2/23/2010 3:02:25 PM

Yes, by the handfuls (in GA)!

2/23/2010 3:02:25 PM

1/2-1 cup Black Oil Sunflower seeds, starting in January. Helps them blow their winter coat.

2/23/2010 3:00:56 PM

losing a few hairs here and there, but nothing I'd call "shedding" just yet.

2/23/2010 3:00:42 PM

round curry and lots of elbow grease!

2/23/2010 2:57:51 PM

Live in southern NH and the hair is starting to fly!

2/23/2010 2:57:45 PM

brush, brush and then brush

2/23/2010 2:57:33 PM

We have 2 inches of ice on the ground from this weekend!

2/23/2010 2:54:08 PM

Just in the last two weeks he is shedding heavily.

2/23/2010 2:54:04 PM

All 5 still covered in yak fur!

2/23/2010 2:51:20 PM

one is, the rest aren't

2/23/2010 2:49:12 PM

She sheds her final hair around June 15 and starts the winter coat on July 7.

2/23/2010 2:48:43 PM

Its almost kinda scary because it hasn't gotten above 40 degrees yet! I feel I need to blanket him!

2/23/2010 2:48:09 PM

actually a month age

2/23/2010 2:47:34 PM

I vacume mine with a small shop vac to suck out extra loose hair

2/23/2010 2:47:15 PM

Tiny bit, yes. LONG way to go!!

2/23/2010 2:45:48 PM

Some more than others.

2/23/2010 2:42:40 PM

By the handfuls

2/23/2010 2:42:24 PM

yes and yes. connecticut

2/23/2010 2:42:10 PM

one of two, the Pinto has, but my 4yo Morgan looks like a woolly mammoth in AZ!

2/23/2010 2:42:09 PM

YES! I took enough hair off my horse to glue it together and make another one.

2/23/2010 2:38:23 PM

slightly

2/23/2010 2:35:54 PM

In Minnesota nonetheless!

2/23/2010 2:30:33 PM

yes. just started in last week . we live in Wi.

2/23/2010 2:30:31 PM

use static guard on your clothing before grooming your horses. It really keeps the hair off you!

2/23/2010 2:30:22 PM

I'm in Western NC

2/23/2010 2:27:42 PM

Oh god, yes, and has been since late January.

2/23/2010 2:25:28 PM

The stalled horses have, pasture horses have not.

2/23/2010 2:23:05 PM

Yes! Where does all that hair come from, anyway?!

2/23/2010 2:22:59 PM

I have one(1/2 arab) with very little winter coat, TW is a fuzz ball shedding white everywhere!

2/23/2010 2:22:27 PM

Shedding for about 3 weeks already

2/23/2010 2:22:22 PM

Shedding blade, baths with lots of scrubbing with a curry comb, and standing upwind :-)

2/23/2010 2:21:58 PM

Old fashioned brushing daily - daily is the key action

2/23/2010 2:21:38 PM

None of hem are - still so cold and gray despite more daylight - not the usual pattern for end of Fe

2/23/2010 2:21:07 PM

Washington-Still too early

2/23/2010 2:18:46 PM

I add a cup per feeding a day of a GOOD brand of rabbit feed.

2/23/2010 2:18:45 PM

South Fl...the shedding starts early here!

2/23/2010 2:14:49 PM

2/23/2010 1:30:15 PM

The white hairs on my paint have begun to come out.

2/23/2010 12:11:15 PM

Just a little "dusting" of hairs so far, when brushed

2/23/2010 11:57:47 AM

I am in canada. No forced Light shedding this year.

2/23/2010 11:55:45 AM
