My mare has a spot of mane that is consistantly gone, its probably like 4-6 inches missing. It started 2 years ago when she was reaching between the not-actually-hot wire to get the grass. Since then I can't keep it growing. It was like 4-5" long this summer so I trimmed her mane a little so it could possibly be back to the same length this summer. But then earlier this winter I was brushing her out and it looked like she had bad matts in her mane at that spot but when I went to untangle it with my hands it all fell out with no pressure at all. So now that section is almost completely bald again.
I want to show her this summer, it will be just schooling shows so it doesn't REALLY matter, but it is still awkward to have a horse with a half missing mane. Isn't there a product out there that encourages the hair growth? I don't remember what its called. Or is there a way I could disguise it with some creative braiding?
I don't have a current picture right now but I will try to get one up tomorrow.
