Losing mane


My horse is losing her mane. Hair keeps coming out. She is fully rugged but when I brush her bits keep coming out I find it on her rug too. It doesn't come out in clumps but a fair bit come out all the time kinda like it is just constantly flaking off or falling out.
How can I stop this???

I think they naturally lose a fair amount of mane hair on a daily basis just like humans. I know when I haven't brushed my horses mane in awhile there is always tons in the brush. Could be just the natural hair loss that occurs.

I agree with Vida- it could be natural hair loss, that happens when I brush my horse's mane sometimes too. As long as it's not in clumps, I doubt it's anything to be worried about.
