Franknbeans, that's all you need, an alcoholic horse. Next thing you know he'll be galavanting about the neighborhood, coming home at all hours then demanding you feed him.

I have heard from more than one source that red horses tend to have less mane and tail hair. Not saying all of them. Maybe it's the same for their bodies too.

Yet those who have it are spread about a huge geographical area with different weather patterns.

I recently came across and article on Seasonal Alopecia. I'd never heard of it in all my years involved with horses but it's out there and weather related.

Interesting. I never heard of it either. I will say that DKF's horse looked pretty good when I saw her yesterday.....the hair seems to have grown back.

I heard that applying scope mouthwash to bald areas helps hair to grow back. Can anyone confirm or deny this?

Mine that did this have all gotten their slick, shiny summer coats now. So glad, they were looking pretty unattractive.

Interesting theory. My sorrel was the worst with this shedding thing and she does have the wimpiest mane & tail of the bunch. Hmmm.

The mouthwash will kill off any bacteria. So if there is a bacterial infection in said area, yes. If not mouthwasy won't have any effect of hair growth.
