Moulting Monsters

In a normal world I get Galahad a full clip around February time.  Exmoors don’t tend to get clipped but he is so slow to lose his winter coat that if I don’t he still has the dregs of it in June and he gets far too hot when I ride him.

This year, however, his full clip got delayed until mid March and we all know what happened then!  He is therefore left with just his original clip (done in November I think) and I have not one but two moulting ponies to contend with.  Every time I brush them I get absolutely covered in hair.

On the bright side, I am at home all the time so it’s not like I’m short of time to groom them.  Constantly grooming can get a little wearing though so I’m trying to spend just some time every day working at getting rid of the loose hair.  Luckily the exercise they’re getting has dropped too so they’re not overheating!

  1. Hiya this is my experience as well.charlie has Cushing so he’s on meds to help him get well and he’s shedding a bit more than last year, so I’m hopeful. I get absolutely covered in hair everyday. We may need to clip him as well. It’s so nice to spend time with them now the sun it out. XX
