    Foal
    I have troubles with my Arabains mane too. He is 3 and I just started cutting his bridle path.. and it grows so fast now I can't keep up. I would say go for cutting it all off. Massage the roots like crazy. MTG and Cowboy magic leave in conditioners are working for me. Protein and spraying his mane with a baby shampoo water mix then brushing lightly every other day is working. I never use a comb or braid because it was pulling his hair out.

    Thatīs it! My standardbred mare rubbes half of her mane off every summer (because of insects bites, repellent doesnīt help much), I cut it all off and during winter the mane grows thick and heavy, right now it starts falling on side of the neck (you can help it by putting a wet towel on the mane to keep its shape or to keep it on one side of the neck).

    Roach it, apply MTG for the itchiness if she's rubbing it due to itchiness, and let it grow back. (we have a young mare whose mane was kept rubbed off due to itchiness for over a year... I put MTG on it twice and it stopped the itching and rubbing completely).

    I would put a barrette in it & call it a day.

    Try rubbing baby oil into it every other day for a week.

    I wouldn't do that, because baby oil, will cause the sun to burn the hair.

    (Totally made me laugh!) **Please don't take offense, OP!** I just thought to myself, wow, it sounds just like ME when I am momentarily very irritated by something in life...(especially MY OWN hair)...I just "put a barrette in it & call it a day"!
