I sent my 5 yr old gelding to a trainer this fall, and he tied him up to the fence for some post-time after training and went to do some other things. The horse next to him got loose and ended up chewing off the tail of my horse :(. So sad. I had it almost to the ground. The trainer felt absolutely horrible about it and wanted to refund all my money, but I made him keep half of it since he did ride him and even shoe'd him for me. I washed and conditioned it and kept it wrapped while he was in by himself after I got him back, but now that he's been turned out with the cows, it's just too hard to do that every day. Any supplements or sprays that would help it grow through the winter? I've tried to just let him go and not brush it or anything to hopefully keep from breaking it for a while.
