I know there has been some concern about the possibility that Buck has Cushings, due to his long coat? Well I am happy to report that he is shedding out like some kind of crazy shedding machine. I brushed him for about 10 minutes a few days ago, and took off enough hair to fill a shopping bag. Tonight I was petting him and was pulling huge handfuls of hair off his neck!!
So hooray, probably not Cushings. But d’oh! No fun for his groom, me.
Also I’ve had a couple people look at him and agree that he looks to be some kind of Morgan/Pony cross. I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that I am certain he’s part Morgan. I don’t know if you guys agree or not, but I maintain that you can’t judge by looking at photos. If you want to play guess-the-breed, you’re gonna have to come over and see him in person. Bring a shedding blade with you!
