Rubbed Tail!

My horse used to rub his tail because his sheath was dirty (before I got him; I clean him regularily!) and now he has a bald spot on the top of his tail around his dock. Does anyone know how to get that hair to grow faster? Also, I need suggestions on how to braid a short mane w/o using needle and thread!

A horse rubbing his tail is also a sign of worms. Make sure you put him a regular deworming schedule.

Yeah, my friend has some MTG that i'm going to try, and then buy some if it works. I'm going to deworm him and get him checked over thoroughly when I actually get him. I really cannot wait! He's my first horse!

Congrats on your first horse. MTG always works very well. Give it a few weeks, a few dewormings and your new horse will be back on top of things

Make sure to post pictures of your new guy when you get him.

Eqyss makes a product called "mega tek" that is fantastic. Long story short one of my horses tails got chewed off; applied this stuff weekly and it grew 6" in 2 months. Ever since I've used it where manes and tails have been rubbed out and it works great to grow that back. It's a bit more expensive than MTG, but personally I can't stand the smell of MTG (that scent combo of bacon grease & motor oil does nothing for me), so it's worth it to spend a bit more. On the upside you don't need to use a lot.

I like the MTG too! It stinks something horrible but it grows hair really fast, I would recommend using gloves when you do it though, my friend used it on her geldings tail and put it on regularly without using gloves and her knuckles got oddly hairy for awhile :) ha! I still laught about that! I hope that works for you!

I'd also recommend using MTG! It's very useful.
LOL, really ILS? That's funny; glad I use gloves, whew! Wouldn't want hairy palms, hehe!
