I have a mare that is due to foal in 20 days. She all of a sudden started shedding off in clumps and is essentially bald where the hair has come off... has anyone experienced this?

YES, I HAVE, IT IS NORMAL, SHE IS JUST SHEDDING HER HAIR FASTER THAN HER NEW HAIR IS GROWING IN. I WAS A BIT CONCERNED WHEN IT HAPPENED TO ME THE FIRST TIME. SHE IS WARM FROM THE PREGNANCY AND HER BODY IS RIDDING ITSELF FROM THE HAIR TO STAY COOL, HORMONES YA KNOW!

I have found that mares close to term shed a whole lot faster than mares that are open! I have one due any day..she shed out in clumps as well and is almost done, my other is due the end of march, she is shedding clumps now..my open mare..she is just barely shedding. I do thinks its hormones..
I did have an old timer tell me that mares will she out almost all their coat before the foal..something to think on anyway..hmmm

WHEN MY MARE WAS KEPT IN A STALL SHE DID THAT ALL OVER, BALD PATCHES, IF I BRUSHED HER IT WAS LITERALLY CLUMPS OUT ATT A TIME TILL BALD, SHE DID IT HER FINAL 3 WEEKS BEFORE FOALING(THIS WAS IN MARCH), HER SECOND ONE DUE IN JUNE SHE DID HTE SAME THING BUT IN APRIL, NOW THIS ONE SHE IS DUE END OF MARCH AND SHE HAS BEGUN TO SHED THIS WEEK QUITE HEAVILY, NOT QUITE CLUMPS, BUT FURR BALLS. BUT SHE IS NOT DUE FOR A MONTH AND IT HAS BEEN VERY COLD HERE RECENTLY, I AM SURPRISED SHE SI SHEDDING AT ALL.
DOES THE DKIN LOOK NORMAL UNDERNEATH? OR IS IT SCALY, RAISED, OR OPEN? IF IT IS NORMAL I WOULD NOT WORRY, IF IT THE OTHER OPTIONS I WOULD MAYBE BEGIN TO THINK A FUNGUS OR SOMETHING.

No she looks normal, slightly dry but that isn't really a worry to me given the dry air we have had. She just looks FUNNY! I thought last night maybe... purely a joking mentality... I am raising the new American Hairless Horse... purely hypo allergenic... LMAO I can't even go there. You know how silly that would be!
