|His coat looks like crap, but that topline is coming along nicely!|
With Dino, you never quite know what shedding season is going to look like, and in the spring of 2014 he surprised me by shedding out COMPLETELY BALD on his chest and shoulders. We're talking down to his black hide, totally hairless, not even kidding you BALD. This happened around mid-April, and while he did grow in some new peach fuzz by the end of the month, he looked positively diseased for a few weeks there.
Last year we had a pretty "normal" shedding season (if shedding season for a Cushingoid pony can ever be considered normal) and didn't experience any unusual baldness.
This year it's not looking good.
|Hi there, Baldy McBalderson. Long time no see!|
|What on God's green earth EVEN IS THIS!?|
|Delightful. Just delightful.|
|This looks weirdly okay?|
I hope he grows some new hair by then, because I really would rather not explain to a 4* clinician that my pony doesn't have a skin disease, he just has to shed out in his Own Special Way.
Ponies. It's always something.
