Re: [RC] [RC] Winter coat in June - ll cole

Thanks for the replies!! I'll look into our feed situation.
She's out on pasture, brome and native grass, with a trace mineral block and a commercially prepared 11% grain and beet pulp mix twice a day. We are located in Kansas and selenium deficiencies are not generally an issue here.
Temperature wise, we've been hitting 80s and a few 90s daytime for quite a while with lows mostly in the 60s.
We'll look a little further into the feed analysis though.
Thanks, Barry.

>I'd check on nutrition - low magnesium in the diet can result in slow shedding. Copper would be another mineral to check.

Low selenium is a big culprit in non-shedding as well.
