Covering scars and getting the tail to lay flat?
I have a show Saturday and the horse I'm showing got in a fight about pecking order recently, so he got nipped at and some hair and skin got pulled. So now he has a big black scar right on his haunches, where no hair has grown yet. He is a bay arabian, with white socks, so it's pretty obvious its a scar. Is there any way to cover it up?
Also, someone nipped at his tail, right at the top, so there's not much hair, and its frazzled looking, sticking out in all directions. When I lay it down flat with my hand, it covers most of the skin, so it doesn't look as bad. But my question is, how do I get the hair to lay flat? Do I wet it the night before the show and wrap it while its a little damp to encourage it to lay flat? Its short hair, about three inches long, so its stubborn.
