Thats exactly what my farrier/trainer suggested. I previously posted a pict of what Hunters mane USED to look like. Here are pre and post beautification picts from today.

Aww...Hunter! Look what you did to your mane! Naughty pony!! I do love his new do though. Loving the little banded look!

Have you tried Tea Tree oil? My horse used to do that really bad, but he would also rub the top off of his tail. So I found teatree oil shampoo, now we have a happy horse with healthy hair. Garlic for balding? Never knew that I just knew that it works for getting rid of flys too.

Thanks he didn't do most of it though. Hi ex paddock mate Blitz did it. At first we weren't sure but Blitz is now with another horse and her mane is disappearing too. grrrrr
