    I went out into the pasture yesterday and found a huge clump of pony shaped hair in the mud, not to mention the fuzzy/muddy pony. Tonka's shedding!! He's the first, nobody else seems to even be thinking about letting loose but his coat is starting to fall out in clumps. All I can hope is that he's not mistaken, usually there's no shedding until late March not early February. So who else is shedding earlier than usual?

    My clipped mare is shedding like there is no tomorrow already.

    My big grey and the mini are shedding but the only horse that I want to shed is not shedding! :)

    My gelding has been shedding for going on two weeks now. Yesterday I was pulling the hair out of the curry in curry-shaped clumps repeatedly. My arms were hurting!

    Miss Kitty has been shedding for about 2-3 weeks and I just noticed Nikki starting as well. The Yak still hasn't even started. :LOL:

    No one here has shed as much as a hair yet!

    Blue is already shedding. Has been in the 60s here, then supposed to drop into the 20s this week. Crazy weather.

    I've noticed a little shedding action going on in the past two weeks. Opal is such a muddy, happy mess right now that I'm not even going to try and curry her, it would be a total waste of my time.

    Whoa! 60s?? We've been having 40s but it's supposed to drop back into the teens in a few days. Now we're getting about an inch of snow. Crazy weather, no kidding.

    Ever since the days have started to get longer, which triggers the summer hair growth, Millie's been shedding. Not a ton of hair yet, but enough to notice.
