Bald spot in his mane :(

Citrus has a bald spot, about 5 inches long, and 90% through his mane.... meaning there is still a small line of hair, enough to cover the bald spot. But, ugh- do horses pull out eachothers hair when they are fighting in the pasture? It looks awful. It is not rain rot- the hair is just suddenly gone. Yuck yuck yuck.

One of the walkers at the barn just got a big chunck yanked out of her mane by the other horses. It looks awful.

My mare consistantly rubs the same spot of her mane out every year. I've heard of horses chewing on other horses tails, but I'm not sure about manes. But yes, they can pull each others hair out while fighting.

Try MTG for it to grow back.

Sticking their head thru the fence, eating out of a round bale feeder that is not open on top, playing, etc.

The list of reasons is very long.
