Exclamation How to cover up cuts and get rid of dandruff

We have our first show Saturday, and one of the classes is halter class. I went out to feed and groom Artie this morning, and found he had dandruff all over his withers and neck. I think that's what it's flaky and white and looks like dead skin. I picked a lot of it off his neck, but he still has a bunch on his neck. Could it be from fly spray? Hosing him down without washing him? I'm not sure.....Anyway, how do I get rid of it in two days?

Also, he has a cut on his forehead and a cut on his butt from fooling around with the other gelding I just found last night. They're both small and neither bleeding or anything, just hair ripped away. I put wound spray on the one on his forehead, though it's smaller than a dime. Any way to disguise these blemishes for halter class? They don't make him look very nice lol.

All advice appreciated! Thanks!

Any judge is going to overlook an honest blemish from getting bumped or scraped.

I would give him a complete bath in Head and Shoulders or the equivalent shampoo. I use this on my show goats when they get dandruff. Its most times dry skin. I also supplement with some omega 3 fatty acids to help the skin be thin and pliable, and I have noticed a lot less dandruff on my goats. Can't imagine it wouldn't help a horse.

Yep, just a good bath with a moisturizing shampoo will get rid of those flakes... I prefer not to use human products on my animals, but if it works for someone, use what you can get! I love mane and tail, and that has never failed to get rid of flakies on my mare. After a bath, I will spray diluted conditioner (mane and tail, again) all over her, which makes her really shine, and helps keep her skin 'moist' after a bath. I almost like the results of the dilute conditioner over things like Peppy, or Laser sheen! She's so soft after, but isn't greasy at all!
