Or some sort of lice or bug. You might want to dust him. (see other tail dock thread for links).

As for growing hair, here is another vote for MTG.

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

Just thought I'd mention that tail rubbing is not always caused by worms or any other parasite, sometimes, as in the case of my foal it is a habit.

Glory is always up for a scratch be it from me or the fence post. When she was smaller she used to go underneath the chain across her yard and use it to scratch her back and the top of her neck. But the best spot to scratch of course is her tail. With a rug on she wont do it, but as soon as it's off she has a massive scratch-a-thon on anything that will stand still, and that includes her mother!
