The older horse is shedding his summer hair. Daughter had an Equestrian Team competitions last weekend, and one class was bareback English. She hopped down and had bright red fur-seat breeches!! Everyone laughed at how much sweaty hair he left on her after the class.
I made sure to stay upwind of him, hair was leaving him with just a breeze blowing! Enough to choke you.
He is always the first to react to shorter day length, with shedding a couple weeks before the others. He gets a big winter coat even though he doesn't live in Canada on the Great Plains anymore. Never believes that it won't be -40F come snow down here, like in his past life.
Yep, white hair all over my clothes too. I don't see any point in fighting it anymore... does anyone have suggestions of colors to wear that don't show the white as much? Something that goes well with green slobber?
