I just roached my horses mane yesterday because I was in the same situation that you are. I got very frustrated with the uneven disaster that was his mane. Good Luck!

Most importantly good feed, and I apply mayonnaise as a leave in treatment.

Unless the vet diagnosed a fungus, the tail rubbing was likely due to mosquito irritation of the underside of the tail, an area the horse can't scratch. Slather Vaseline under there every three or four days and the rubbing will stop. There is nothing that will encourage mane growth, you are dealing with genetics, unless his diet is lacking.
