Our's also had a particularly marked shedding season this Spring and
I have heard that from some others in the North East and Middle
Atlantic. Have no idea why or if the proportion of ferrets in the
general population having a hard shed any given year varies at all
from year to year.

On the other hand, Ashling who had remained largely bald for around a
year following her double adrenal woes and surgery this Spring has
suddenly grown in a full,lush, soft coat over all but four tiny spots.
