Okay. So. I only bathe my gelding before a show. And, actually I haven't really given him a FULL bath yet this year, I will be giving him his first before our equitations show this weekend. My question/dilemma is...I use MTG as he rubs out the bottom of his mane EVERY summer. And it is getting an OKAY amount of growth back but is still super short. Plus he has started rubbing the rest of his mane out. What can I do to prevent mane rubbing??? I have tried the hood and he ripped it. And I have tried other things to no avail. He has also started rubbing the base of his tail. Any help at this point would be very much appreciated. What can I do to stop him from itching/rubbing???? Vegetable oil??? Tips/ideas? Anyone!!!
