I know it's cliche but my new TB has the thinnest skin ever. He is at the bottom of totem pole and one of the other horses is very aggressive. To make it worse, I think he's really hard on himself! He rubs on the lean to and scratches himself up etc. He is on a bug supplement, gets fly sprayed basically daily and there are only 3 other horses in the pasture. He is on rough board and I can't afford private board. They already moved the 4 of them to the larger pasture and fixed a couple of rough spots on the lean to for me. He has only been out with them for about 2 weeks so I'm sure things will get better but he looks absolutely horrible right now.
So, any thoughts? Has anyone used fly sheets or sheets to keep them from looking like rescue cases? Something else? My trainer is really leaning on me to change him over to private board so I'm trying to get some other options to help us out. Fortunately, we do jumpers so it really doesn't "matter" but we still want to look our best.
