Rubbing off mane and some fur

My horse keeps sticking his head through the fence. He is rubbing out his mane in one spot and all his fur is being rubbed off. He also has a little dandruff... Do any of you know if I can put something on it to make it grow back?

Ususally when a horse is rubbing their mane off, it is more than a superficial issue. He could have a fungus or bacteria that is causing him to itch and thus causing the hair to fall out.

Well he's not purposely rubbing it out, he sticks his head through the fence to get grass and I just wanted to kno if there was anything I could put on it to make it grow back?

Hair Rubbing

I know exactly what you mean. Two of my horses did the same thing under my split rail fence to get to the lawn. Both had rubbed parts of their mane almost completely off and my colt rubbed his chest hair off doing the same thing. We had to add an electric wire around the fence at a low level so they stopped and the hair is growing back fine. Just takes time.
