I, too, love the wooly bears...the ears on winter ponies KILL ME. They are barely visible due to nearby fluff/forelock, plus they are so full of their own fur they look solid. Makes me wonder how they can hear (like Winnie the Pooh, ears "all stuffed with fluff." maybe it creates extra vibrations )
I don't have any good pictures of Neigh's whole body and his woollyness (I think his color hides it in pictures), but I took this picture in early November. e's fuzzier even now (and was already shedding a bit when I saw him last weekend!). He's a woolly beast. Always has been, but when he arrives here in the next couple of weeks, I am going to bring up the Cushings subject with my vet, just in case.
My (much) younger horse works for a living, and is very sleek....here he is, bundle within an inch of his life.
