Asker: Thank you. 'Pelage' is not a very common word in English - at least, for me, it's a much less familiar word than 'plumage' for birds - but I can see that it corresponds to the word 'vlásie', in the sense that both are collective nouns for hair.
I take your point that 'vlásie' is used mainly (but not exclusively) for horses.
