Paint mare got attacked how do I get her hair to regrow?

My show mare was out at a breeders for the last 31 days because she doesnt show her heat that well. I went to pick her up today and was told she got attacked by her breeding stock mares. The bites are so severe and now some of them are infected. She lost alot of hair on half of her body with severe bite marks. How do I get the hair to grow after the infection is gone so that there is no scarring and I may show her again?

Let nature do its job. It should regrow on its own within a month or so. If not, there's nothing you can do. Don't even bother with the old wives tales, I.e. Bacon grease and all that garbage.

Well, it they're infected I'd say antibiotics are in order. There are also many over-the-counter ointments that may help ease the swelling and discomfort of the bites.

I would also have some VERY STRONG WORDS with the owner of the stallion where she was kept. This should not have happened. Yes, horses will skuffle a bit, but it sounds pretty extreme. He would be paying for any vet bills I incurred at the very least!!

TMom is right. Use antibiotic for her cuts. In fact, I'd recommend the human one (with pain relief) for the worst ones. Hair will certainly grow back - no worries about that.

Ditto for the antibiotic ointment. After the infection is cleared try a product called Corona in a yellow bottle with a red top. It is really thick and goopy but it really works and helps but the hair back on fast.

Corona works great, if she get beat up that bad then they are not feeding them enough or they keep to many in a feild to small.

Actually, some studs are just rough with the mares. (something that is NOT acceptable in my book) It has nothing to do with the size pen or food. They just have no "manners" and have never been taught correctly.

I once knew of a stallion who could only be bred to "his" mares. He would not accept any others. He was well fed and in a 25 acre pasture. One night a mare that was in an adjoining pasture got into his pasture (she was in season) and he KILLED her!!! Tore chunks right out of her. If it was my stallion, he would have been destroyed. No matter what the papers or pedigree. Something like that should NOT have been breeding. (his foals were snots too!)

That is why I said that the stallion owners and or breeding facility would have felt the wrath of Txhorsemom if it was MY mare. IMO when breeding to an outside mare they should always be (at least) hand bred in a controlled environment so things like that don't happen.

i guess I should quickly introduce myself. My name is emily and im new to this forum but not to horses. I have been riding and dealing with horses since I was 3 which is around 25 years now. I have two money munchers :P a chestnut thoroughbred mare who is my show/dressage girl and a 20 year old standard bred gentleman that is my husbands "confidence" horse. He's a sweet old boy and even though he's an ex pacer, he trots and canters well.

I totally agree with everything said here. On most occasions, people pay good money to have their horse covered and looked after. Also when accepting a mare into a stud environment, the establishment takes on the responsibility in the care of that horse. To handle the horse in a disrespectful manner or allow the horse to be subject to bullying or any form of mistreatment (by this I mean any scenario in which a horse may be hurt or frightened) is IMHO, unacceptable and the breeder should be held responsible for any injuries and therefore, vet bills incurred.

The breeder would have definitely copped a mouthful that would have made him ask whether or not it was that time of the month for me. We work hard to keep our horses in great shape and scar free and the last thing anyone needs is a trip to the breeder resulting in scarring and possibly personality changes because of this. Not to mention the environment that the horse was made subject to is one we would never readily impose open our horses under normal circumstances.

My vet gave antibiotics, and then told me to spray with Solar Cane the red can. And then when it starts healing you can rub Vitamin E on it. It really works and now anytime my horses get bite or kick marks, I put vitamin E on them and the hair grows back.
