I know what you mean, I have a yearling filly that has rubbed her mane off in the middle. I have been trying to decide to go ahead and cut the rest of it so it grows out even or just leave it alone. It looks kinda silly now, but she is just a baby.

You could try MTG (Shapley's). It smells really disgusting, like bacon grease. But it does a nice job of growing hair out faster.

I do use the MTG on my mare, I guess I need to give my filly a "greasing"

I like Healthy Hair Moisturizer. My mare rubbed her mane out in the middle and it came back quick Also, brush the mane alot to stimulate the hair folicule.

I think I will cut it. I was looking at it today and it is getting shorter in the middle. We are in the process of replacing the barbless wire we have now to a woven wire horse fence but in the mean time she is reaching through the wire and rubbing it off. She is the only one that does it silly filly :roll:
