Growing back blanket rubs?

Any tips/tricks for growing hair out? If I use too much product he will rub it out even more, he gets itchy. Anyone have any ideas for how I csn get his Manet come back in before show season starts?

There's a couple of things you could try. A lighter weight blanket, no blanket or a different cut/style of blanket.
I use the Ice Turtle blankets & have no rubs but they are removed every night.

The only thing that helps my horse so far is to use a nylon blanket liner. I don't understand how a lighter weight blanket would make a difference ??

My mare gets rubs on one shoulder only... no blanket is not an option and her blanket is removed every day and she is groomed every day.

She may get too warm in a heavier blanket thus making her feel itchy even if she's not sweating.

Depending on where the rubs are, you can use those silky "guards". My Morgan has a high headset and a really narrow chest so if the weather stays really cold and he's stuck wearing blankets, he'll get rubs on his chest. A guard fixed it, I just bought a couple and launder often.

I don't think its body hair but mane the OP was talking about??
I know Cody has a stringy Mane and I bought MTG it stinks like a camp fire but is working..

Another alternative would be tea tree oil ;) Nothing topical will make hair "grow faster" but tea tre oil will help the area not be itchy, and it will keep the skin soft and pliable while the hair tries to grow back! You could always try a feedthrough coat supplement (biotin, ricebran, fatty stuff etc) that will help him grow a better coat/mane and have healthier skin. Best of luck!
