At first I really thought it might be snow - but - a bit too much for the imagination! Did you get the hair all over you too? Great photos.
I am thinking that might make a nice lining for a bird's nest?
I didn't know horses shed like that.I bet they are happy you brushed them with the shedding brush.Some redhead in our family needs a trim too :)Have a Happy Weekend, Theresa!Peace :)
Hello Theresa!:) Your barn looks spacious but cosy, I'll bet Gem loves all the grooming.
If you want more snow for you and your horses - we have plenty here!!Have a good weekend.
good morning theresa, at first i too thought it might be snow..hehegreat photos of your horses as usual. thanks for sharing.happy weekend~
Now this kinda white doesn't bother me....I bet those two are the BEST of Buddies!!
You had me going. I thought it must've blown into the barn through the door by strong wind. That's a lotta horse hair. I'm glad our Toy Poodle is shed-proof
That's a lotta hair! Reminds me of how bad mine was falling out when I was first floxed! Hope the rains haven't been hammering you too hard.
Hi Theresa - well Gem will be feeling better once the real heat comes along .. cheers Hilary
I was going to say wow, and it's been warm here in Philly:@)
Looks like your horses are getting ready for spring. Enjoy your weekend.
Hello Tex, I am happy to see you participating today. So glad that is Gem shedding and not snow. I am hoping winter is over. She is pretty! Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Have a happy weekend!
First time seeing horses shedding like this... a learning thing for me! Nice shots
Oh wow...bet she feels better!
A girl has to have her hair done, the birds would love some of that for their nests.
I wish I could get rid of my old outer layer that easy
I'm thinking snow surely not!And then I read on ...I don't know anything about shedding blades but I'm sure they are most useful.Have a great weekendAll the best Jan
Wow, Gem must have been nice and warm:) Hug B
Very interesting shots of the horses.
We are in a melting stage, but we got a light dusting last night. One has learned to expect a few late winter/early spring storms but maybe it won't happen this year. We shall see.
Love the horses!Happy weekend to you!!!!
For a minuet there I was wondering how snow got inside your barn lol I suspect lots of the horses in the area here are shedding their fuzzy winter coats now that the weather has warmed up . Lovely horses ! Have a good weekend !
This is a first for me; I never knew horses shed hair! Thanks for sharing. Have a great weekend. Jo
Shed mine last week . . . I think. :-)
I also didn't know you had to help horses shed their winter coats. Gem looks quite spiffy now. :-)
Shedding the winter coat, our horses love the grooming. I later love to find a bird nest with some horse hair woven in the mix.
haha! It is getting to be that time of year! Horse hair everywhere!
Looks like my house when i brush all the cats! Beautiful horses.
Ha Ha, had me fooled. I didn't have my glasses on at first. That's a lot of "Snow!"
Amazing how much they shed off for the warmer weather to come. Have a nice weekend.
Biggest snow I can remember came in March here...eighteen inches!I still miss horse hair.
Great nesting material! :)
Funny, it has to go somewhere, because thankfully, so far as lately, it's not around here!
Oh I bet she loved the grooming!
i really believed it was snow. i bet it feels good to have all that heavy hair off and just in time for hot weather.
I was wondering why the hair was in a pile and as usual you explained it. I'm surprised your horses had such a heavy winter coat.
You had me going there for a minute. I always loved using the shedding blade on the horses in the spring. It was fun to get those handfuls of hair out of them and to know that their sleek summer coats would soon be adorning them.
That is quite a winter coat!
This must be a comfortable temperature.I am sweating even doing nothing.
that's a lot of hair! she must feel so much better! you're such a good mom. :) I just started helping Rambo with his winter coat yesterday. :)
The real reason for the snow-like debris on the barn floor is a surprise. Nice pictures of this side of horse raising and caring.
I almost believed that they were patches of snow. I didn’t know horses shed winter coat. I remember helping my late Shiba Inu dog shedding winter hair by brushing. Yoko
She looks so pleased with her fur-cut in that first picture!
For a second there I thought oh no!, what mess is mother nature sending my way this time?!! No snow! Not that I am ready for tornadoes and such, but I hope winter has said it's farewells for now. Have a wonderful weekend!
Funny, I never realized that horses shed....duh!
Oh, I bet she felt so much better!It really could have passed for snow at a distance. ;)
That's a lot of coat!I remember combing out my Lab. My arm tired before all the fluff and hair were removed.
Neat shots of the shedding critters ~ Happy Weekend to you ~ ^_^
It sure does look like snow. Ah, you could gather it up and knit a horse hair blanket.
Heh,heh, funny snow. A lot of hair leaves on the horse.Have a nice weekend.
As SOON as I scrolled down and saw that pale face, I said "Gem!"Thanks for letting her say hello to us all today. Love you, Cuz
Oh, I had no idea they could do that. LOL
You must have been raised on a ranch to know so much about taking care of things. Trust you are doing it all alone. Seeing after everything is a big job.
We have had some real sheddy horses--looks like Gem is one of them. When the kids were little and they had ponies--oh boy they could fill bags and bags of shedded hair. The fun life thoughMB
You had me going for a while. At first I really thought it was snow. That must feel a lot better. Hugs,JB
Love your new spring 'do, Gem!~
White, but it is warm, not cold. Regards.
You had me fooled! Gem must feel great after shedding all that hair!
Gem, you have given the signal that Spring is officially there. Lots of hair, do you put it on the garden, I read somewhere that all the hair from barbers and hairdressers is so good round plants!!!
awwwww, you had me there!!! perhaps a good shedding this time of year will help lighten her coat for summer temperatures!!! is that the case???have a happy weekend t!!!!
it looks so different from European snow
yes, it could pass for snow. I didn't know that horses shed their winter coats. The things you learn on blogs.
At first it looked like long snow, then pic 2 came up and all was revealed. That reminds me,.....i need a haircut too.peter
I almost believed you for a minute ;>)... was just hearing about the flooding in Louisiana and I thought maybe it turned to snow further along the line. I bet she was happy to be groomed!!!
That is a lot of hair! She must feel so light and airy now!
Oh you, I believed you, Blessings Francine.
It is traditional for us to get at least one more hard freeze before Spring has truly sprung. If it comes early enough, there should be a good fruit crop in the Fall.
Hello Tex!Wow!!First time seeing horses shedding like this!!Beautiful horses!It was snowing here in the Netherlands on Monday!Have a relaxing weekend!Dimi...
I'm glad for you that's not snow :)Here we have still too much of it...
Snow would melt and you wouldn't need to clean it up.
I bet it felt so good to her to get rid of it!
Hahahahahahaha.......what a hier........love from me Ria x
T, that's a bit hairy!
she may need it yet. :>)
I think rain is all you're going to get this March!
Aw! Those cuties! I keep waiting for a spring snow. Not really excited about that.
For a moment I thought your barn had been invaded by Tribbles. I do believe you have the neatest barn I have ever seen.
There is something nice about doing that in the spring.
She has to feel better getting rid of all that fur!
Dearest Theresa,Haha, I was looking at it with frowned eyebrows being it under a roof as well.Guess Gem feels good about losing her winter coat and ready to dart out into the meadow in spring weather.Hugs,Mariette
Must be a Spring thing, my pups are just starting to shed though it won't amount to nearly as much as Gem!
The horse hair is so pretty and white. we're having lots of nice rains here in town but not as much at the ranch. Enough to be thankful for though.
Grooming can be messy!
Oh wow, that's a lot of hair.
Looks like some lucky birds will have lots of free nesting material.
Such beautiful horses !! I love to watch them !! Great photos !!Have a nice Sunday !
I really thought snow there for a minute . . . And then I read further . . .Bet the three of you have a wonderful friendship . . .I find my one "furry" who had to be recently trimmed of all her curlsto be my bestest friend ever . . .
Fuzzy fuzzy! :-) Bet that shedding blade feels like a good scratch!
Love your horses!!
You had me fooled for a minute too! I love your horses too! Hugs!
Hi Tex, That is pretty amazing and does look like snow ... wow ... well, speaking of snow and weather, I have wondered how you are doing down there several times lately when watching the evening news and we get those weather reports for the whole country. It seemed like your area was on the edge of this most recent storm that left a lot of flooding in neighboring Louisiana. Hope you have had no damage!
She must have enjoyed that. Fabulous building material for the birds.
Awesome.Enough hair from brushing?Now the horse looks beautifully.Have a nice week.
Hi Teresa!:) I have just posted what should have been next weeks Good Fences post by mistake, I'll leave it now, and link it up next week.:)
I'll bet she feels so much lighter! Got a good scratching, too! You have enough to knit a sweater!
Beautiful horses, I love them.
I bet she appreciates your work!
Oh, my. It looks like when I strip Maggie's coat. Quite a job!
Funny, as I just took a double take. The dogs are shedding too, and my house sweeper cannot keep up with it all. Have a wonderful week, doing what you enjoy~
Excelentes fotografias.Um abraço e boa semana.
Hope the snow days are over for this year!
Lol! Nice grooming though :)
She has a devilish grin on her face in the first photo.
LOL - love it!
Hi Tex, Should have saved this one for April fools! Fun post. Lovely Gem! Have a great day!
So the real question is...will Gem build a 'snow'man?
This has to be my second-favorite of your posts. I loved it!
We saw on our TV last night huge flooding your way.Are you safe? I couldn't find your email address, so thought I would leave a comment. Hope all is well up you way and at your home.
You could make horse wool and knit a whole new horse!Cheers - Stewart M - Melbourne
these pics are really beautiful loved being here you got great blog dear
Beautiful pictures of the horses.Great nesting material for the birds.Best regards, Irma
Good haircut ;)
You almost fooled me with the white stuff in your barn! Watch out for the birds next.
I bet she felt better. Amazing how much hair sheds.
Had me fooled-- I thought the snow fell through a hole in the roof of the stable!
Snow? Ins't this a bit late in the year?Greetings,Filip
Very nice horses!
Poor thing. She must be embarrassed.Amaliaxo
I had no idea horses shed! Glad it wasn't the "real" snow :)
When I read your title, I thought even though snow !!! ???But that proved to be a joke from you lol ... Very nice done so :-)
Beautiful horses. ! Had to think about the snow though !
Oh, that's funny! I would never have expected that. I guess Gem thinks it's time for spring!
Oooo I just knew it was going to be Gem shedding her coat!
It kind of reminds me of cottonwood blooming. Hope your kids are enjoying their lighter coats!
