chewed tail!

Hey everyone,

I having a tail question... One of my horses has gotten some of the hair on his tail bone chewed off by a pasture-mate. Its a bald spot in a very isolated spot.. Just one side of his tail bone. I've tried wrapping in vet wrap but it gets pulled off. Any suggestions on how to protect that area of the tail? Any suggestions on how to fix the damage as timely as possible? Thanks!

MTG works wonders on growing the hair faster.

Yeah I think all you can really do is MTG. Thats what my friend is using for her horse, because he rubs his tail and he has like no tail because of it.
