Hello, I am new here and this is my first post.
I just recently acquired a new horse. He is about 6 years old and a Blue Roan Appaloosa. His mane parts down the middle and falls on both sides of his neck??? I've never seen a horse with hair like this. He reminds me of Don King. LOL He also has extremely dry flakes along the base of the mane. What can I put on it now to help it out? Do they make Head and Shoulders for horses? LOL Please help.
Is there anyway to fix this? Should I cut it really short and hope it decides to grow the correct way?
I also have a totally off the wall question. I've been lurking around and saw a few pictures where the horses from the neck up are shaved short and the rest of the hair is the winter coat??? Is this for a reason? I don't mean to sound dumb. Just curious.
