My horse has rubber his shoulders, neck and other places. We compete every weekend so I need ideas to hide them. We are putting Niger on them and that looks alright, but does anyone have anymore ideas to hide these up.
Haha I know how you feel my horse does it too. I usually just put mtg on the rub marks and they grow right back. Umm I would probably look online or at you local feed store to find a different cover up.
I would certainly get a blood panel run on him to determine whether it could be stress or physically related; fungus, bacterial, etc.
What kind of sprays do you use on him? It could be a result of allergies; my mom's old arab will lose hair if you put anything oil based on him.
I would try something like Aloe Heal, or some other form of gentle skin moisturizer before going to something like MTG...no offense to those who will suggest it, I just don't think it is that gentle to alot of horse's skin; I mean they tell you to apply it with gloves, and a horse's skin can be alot more sensitive than ours...soooo...
I would try really hard to look into the reason why he's rubbing. If he's rubbing himself a lot, something is probably irritating the skin. If he's itchy because he's shedding, I would try to give him a good grooming as much as possible.
Other then that, once you get the hair to grow back, you can get him a slinky. =]
