Did you know that the horse’s pituitary gland recognizes the change in daylight hours and triggers shedding?
I LOVE ‘shedding season’…I enjoy breaking out the brushes, clippers and having a ‘make-over day’ in the barn.
This is a photo of Jac’s butt on make-over day last week. I love scrapping off all the old hair (some mud too as he had fun in the turn out) and uncovering the hidden treasure, lol.
My favorite tools for this job are: an old fashion shedding blade and Shine & Detangler for after the bath (the trick is to put the detangled in the mane and tail while wet and let it dry before you brush).
Where do you live? Are your horses shedding yet? What are your favorite grooming tools or tips when they do?
