I really enjoy watching the changes the horses' coats go through as the seasons change, and all the individual variations in color and texture. We are now done with the sleek, thin, flat coats of summer. The shedding is mostly done, and all the horses are getting fuzzy as the beginnings of their winter coats grow in. Some of the horses get very heavy winter coats - Blackjack and Joe particularly, and Lily and Norman when they were living here - I wonder if their coats will be sparser in Tennessee? Neither Dawn nor Noble gets a very long coat, although Dawn gets long guard hairs, especially on her jaw.
