Bald spots... dry skin...

MagnumFace.jpg

What can I use/do to stimulate hair growth in those little bald spots? There is a small one on his face near his halter. He must have bumped his face or something a while back and I would like to help it fill back in if I can.

He also has a dry patch on his face/nose where it looks like the old owners might have left a halter on him a lot... what can I use for the dry skin? I need something I can use in his mane area too for flakes.

Can we all think warm thoughts too... it's stinkin' cold her and I just want to get out there and bathe him and play with him more! It's been NASTY here and half the town was shut down the last couple of days.

My thoroughbred has a bunch of hairloss under has mane where his previous owners used a topical wormer on him, causing his hair to fall out. I have been spraying vetricyn on it and it is starting to regrow the hair. It is very safe, so would be great to put on the face. It's a little costly, but is great to have around.

I add natural apple cider vinegar to my horses meals. His coat grows back faster in the bald spots and is much healthier for sure.

I use baby oil on my ponies dry skin, she gets sweetitch and doesn't stop scratching, she's made two bald spots on her bum, the oil helps the skin and her hair seems to be growing back

How do you use it? Just put it on hairless spots? Apparantly Walter has been rubbing alot on things lately. He also plays hard with another 2 year old and has bald patches from their play. It's quite a pain in the butt lol, and I would like to do some showing this summer doing halter- but I don't want him to look too bald lol.

This is good stuff! I use it for everything. Manes, tails, rain rot, dandruff, mud fever, and the list goes on and on. Love it!!! Tractor supply used to sell travel size bottles for a few bucks so you could try it out without buying the big bottle.

MTG either works really well or does the exact opposite and burns the skin.
You must use it with care. Corona ointment works for EVERYTHING. It sticks to everything and helps hair regrow very well, so does emu oil. As far as the flaky mane, Just leave it; it doesn't bother your horse as much as it bothers you :)
