Yes, this is for the horsey section

Our horses are moulting and the amount of hair that is coming off them when I groom them could be used to stuff an old fashioned duvet but I don't think that it would be very comfortable

It seems very early to be dropping so much hair - in the spring, the birds are queuing up to fly it away for their nests and jackdaws have been seen standing on Bella's back and plucking it out for themselves.
