    I do give him omega horseshine which is supposed to be for coat and hooves. I don't really see that it has done anything. I got some corn oil and gave him a tablespoon yesterday and today. Not sure how slowly I need to introduce that to his diet and how much to end up giving him

    Some people acctually end up giving almost half a cup of corn oil, I think that's a little extreme, but my horses just get a quarter cup of corn oil and in like 2 weeks you really see results, its hard in the winter with the furry hair but in the spring you really notice ;) and you don't have to start so small with the corn oil you can give him a quarter cup safely, but if you want to give more than that add it a little more slowly.

    I feed a 1/4 cup as well.

    What works for my horses is iodine shampoo. It works quite well. It doesnt smell all that great, but it works. Also, iodine baths in the spring and fall prevents botts and things like that. It works great

    I will go with 1/4 cup then, thanks. I have never heard of iodine shampoo. Do you make it yourself or do you buy it? Does it stain?

    Haha you poor thing! You just bought all that stuff and you can get iodine shampoo through a catalog or tack store too. They are usually medicated shampoos. I have never personally tried it on dandruff but it sounds like you really want to get rid of it, so its worth a try!

    Lol I have the same problem I come the mane and bath my then rub in the conditioner and rinse it out but make sure you rinse it all out because the grease in the conditioner would make it worse.

    Since I will need to order iodine shampoo from a catalog then I will have to order other items as well to make the shipping and handling worth it, right? Works for me. :) Don't think it works for the budget though. I cannot give him a bath for awhile anyway because we had spring and warm weather and then it changed it's mind and dumped a bunch of snow and got cold again.
