I have an OTTB who just came off the track last Spring. This year was his first winter in a regular barn. He has had a large number of skin problems which I have learned are mostly from his previous barn, coming off the track, his first winter OTT, and lack of oils in his skin.
He started off with rain rot, which started to go away in early Feb. Its come back worse and now his dandruff has increased.
Yes he's been dewormed, when its warm we give him betadine baths, etc. Also he's finally started to gain some weight.
So heres my question:
Many people have told me that his coat will look gorgeous during the summer. But I was wondering... what else could I do to speed up the process and help his skin and coat even more??
Im going to give him a head and shoulders wash when it warms up with some babyoil as well. Someone suggested MTG to help his hair grow back and help his rain rot... Should we buy another type of feed? (Hes is currently using a sweet feed that is higher in protein because it also contains some beet pulp)
Thanks for all of your help! I know this was a long post... haha
PS he's almost 5.
