Last winter the stable that I had my horse boarding at used a cattle hay feeder (had top bar). Her mane rubbed off half way down her neck leaving her with a 7 inch section with no hair. It has been going back in at a ok pace (about 4 inches in length now) but still isn't long enough to trim the rest of the mane to match. I'd rather not cut her mane any shorter because she has a puffy long mane. I'm just looking for a quick fix, if there is one, to hide this mess for my clinic in two weeks. :)
There is a show at the end of the clinic. I just want her to look half presentable. I was thinking of french braiding tight to her neck all the way down with a blue ribbon maybe. But i'm unsure of how that would work out for staying in where there is the section that is shorter
If it's just for a clinic, it shouldn't matter. You can use MTG but be aware that it can blister more sensitive-skinned horses.
You could just roach it.
Made this mistake on a chestnut with sensitive skin. I was using it on the base of his tail... It swelled up, then went baled. After some washing and rinsing with LOTS of fresh water he was ok in a few days. But boy, did THAT backfire.
