Angry Section of mane missing!

Any suggestions to get my mare mane to grow faster. Most of it is a good length but the feeder in the winter rubbeda section out about half way. It looks really stupid to because she has wavy coarse hair so it just puffs right up. Anything I can do, especially when i take her to her clinics?

My horses had the same thing happen. I had to shave off my two geldings manes but i did not have to shave my mares. I used MTG on it and it grew back pretty fast.

Personally, I'd cut it all the same length to keep it from looking funky, but that's up to you.
For growth, try Shapley's MTG- it's a godsend.

Had this problem with my gelding Castle, he rubbed out a three inch section of mane. I used a hot oil treatment which worked really well, and kept it flat and straight.

My colt did the same thing, he rubbed a big section of his mane all the way to the skin! I put my horses on a vitamin and mineral supplement and his hair grew back really fast.

Its not really an option to cut her main to all one length lol she has a coarse wavy main and it would look ridiculous short lol. All I'm doing right now is putting it in pony tails and mane and tale serum on it. I'm definally going to pick up some mtg though, ive seen it around and never really knew how well it worked.
