Steel hasn't shed since we adopted him (almost 2 years). He started shedding a tuft a week a few months ago. Just recently upped that to a tuft a day.

YES!!! Both are blowing big time. They shed all the time, but this is major. I think in part it's our crazy Colorado weather - warm to cold and back again, constantly. I don't think they know what to do...so they just said to heck with it we'll just dump the entire coat.

Caja is blowing her coat like mad too. The two boys don't seem to be though.

I've gotten a ridiculous amount of coat off Halo recently, Keefer not so much. I posted a picture a few weeks ago of the mound of undercoat I took off her, then I got a similar mound a week ago, and was still able to pull out more clumps of hair with my hands a few days ago.

Looks like I missed those pics Cassidy'sMom! So we've got a couple shedders from CA, and several from all over the place! I still say that it doesn't make sense, but at least it's not cuz he's sick or something, he's not alone!

(LOL Joanne, at Steel's rate, he'll never blow that coat!)

Ugh! Denali is the one prone to blowing her coat. When I'm done brushing her, I ask her "Why did you kill the bunny?". She's done it twice this year and I'm surprised the second time was around winter time.

I found the thread - it was actually 11/30, so just 3 weeks ago:



I got a similar amount in another session with the undercoat rake since then, PLUS all the hair I've pulled out with my hands in the past few days!!!

Have you changed any supplements? I'm wondering if that's why Steel isn't shedding.

I brushed LJ just now and got a brush full of hair. Brushed Steel and got nothing.

I know, I shouldn't look a gift horse in the mouth.
