Question Getting the hair to grow back?

My mare has all these little spots all over her head, neck and shoulder area on both sides, where the hair is missing, and because she is a dark skinned buckskin, the little black areas are very noticeable when she's wearing her short summer coat.

I've tried putting MTG on the spots, putting baby oil on them, hair conditioner, but nothing has worked to make the hair grow back. I have no clue where she got these from, because they were there when I got her and she was a rescue. Does anyone have any home remedies for getting the hair to grow back??

Here's a pic, you can kind of see some of them.

How about trying Cornucrescine?? It is predominantely for hoofs but also for hair regrowth and personally I find it works very well when my mare decides to scar herself in the field. I think it is more effective on some horses than others but you dont know until you try it. Downside is that it is pretty sticky and dark coloured, but it might be worth a go if you are running out of ideas.

Very pretty rescue horse though

Thanks :) I may give it a shot! How long do you find it normally takes to produce results? Is it very expensive?

If you think it may be some type of fungus, use a half and half mixture of baby oil and Listerine. It worked when my mare had rain rot.

Honary "HFA" member...That's right, I'm admitting it!

BTW....That's NOT rain on your windshield!!!!

Interesting...I'm going to try that...how often did you have to put it on before it started working?

Call me crazy but i've used bacon grease and it worked. The guy who owns the barn where i board at had me use it on a scar where hair wouldn't grow back on my horses hindquarters.

Sorry for not getting back to you sooner.

Its not very expensive and if you dont find it works at least you have got a pot of decent hoof ointment, I got it in the pot with the screw top lid without the hoof brush (I think its just the original). It took a couple of weeks to heal over but the coat grew back as thick as anywhere else and you wouldn't have known there was a scar there.

Hope you find something that works soon.

Did you try tea tree oil? Little $9 bottle in most pharmacies.

You just have to see your distance...you don't have to like it.
