Aweful Mane Problem

Hi so my horse got a chunk of his mane eatin off by another horse reaching over the fence. Its looks aweful cause its right in the middle. Is there anything I can do to get it to grow back out? and dont say cut or pull it cause i refuse to either because it has taking me forever to get his mane as long as it is now. please help! and the horse that ate his mane is no longer on the property his owners sold me. so no need to mention moving him away from the horse that did it

I have had success with MTG (mane tail grow) its kind of greasy, but you only put it on there mane and tail (or what ever) once or twice a week.

When I got Reuben, he has a chunk missing. I pulled to show length and it looks great. His mane is thinner anyway and I think I may just keep it there.

don't laugh... preperation h. get the generic just make sure your horse isnt allergic. use only with peach fuzz and bald spots. for a fuller tail and growth use this stuff called hair mayonaise. works great.

Cut off some mane from the horse that chewed your horse's mane. Glue into the missing spot with hair extension bond. It's the only fair thing to do.

LOL waresbear!!

I second the MTG. That's what we use. It helps with skin conditions like rainrot, too. Good stuff.
