Just remember that while bathing and MTG will help clear up the visible skin issues, the only way to really fix the problem and prevent it from coming back is to work from the inside out. I use Cocosoya SP via Smartpak - it's $22 a month and worth its weight in gold. You can also get it in one gallon and 5 gallon jugs. Horses love the taste and it's pretty economical. It makes their coats gleam, helps hooves grow faster and harder, and it even helps manes and tails grow longer and fuller. I've been using it for years and my horse will never be off it. I know a lot of people who feed soy bean or corn oil, but the problem with most store bought oil is it's refined. When oils are refined, it strips them of the essential fatty acids that are needed to have any real effect on your horse. If you decide to use a corn or vegetable oil, look for "crude" or "unrefined" oils. They sell them mostly in health food stores.
