My cousin messaged me with the same question last year. "Do all Preg mares start shedding earlier" ?

Her mare Ruby, was indeed pregnant at the time ( which we knew) , however as she was shedding even before spring arrived.

I asked my vet and she said not all preg mares shed earlier , but quite a few do. She doesn't believe its entirely a "pregnancy" thing ( and only because its not medically proven to be that)

However, from the pregnant mares she deals with , she has noticed "most" start to drop coats earlier.

Precious is pushing 250 days, so they are pretty close in dates.

I've noticed my heavily bred mares always shed earlier than others. Precious is due april/ May andis already shedding before others. Sassy isn't due til July and isn't shedding at all.

Well, I hope Sophia isn't due til closer to April/May, but she had one early breed date of April 24, which gives her a 300 day of Feb 16th; it's just too cold for that crap.

Sounds like spring might be in the air for you!  Don't know about shedding and pregnancy....I never noticed a correlation, or even thought about it.  But I'll be interested in other's comments on this.

One thing I wanted to do in new Orleans was the swamp tour, unfortunately  we ran out of time... if you like that sort of thing it could be exciting!!
We rode the ferry and that was nice and relaxing!

Spring shed and pregnant mares???

How accurate of a gauge of pregnancy is shedding?   Seems often pregnant mares are the first to shed.  So, curious if it's a good sign of pregnancy, especially if no one else is shedding?   

Sophia is shedding, I touched her today, and pulled back a hairy arm.
