I read a similar article in the past, but it didnít go into shed timing...  that is one thing that has always had me wondering why some shed early and some seem to hold them a lot longer.   :tup: :tup:

Definitely interesting. I still feel like there is some missing information in this study. It doesn't mention anything about watching the actual animals that dropped the sheds. Seems like it would be difficult to confirm these findings without actually observing the animals to some degree.  :dunno:
