You live in NM right? Dry, no humidity? Chances are, she suffers from dry skin, just like alot of people do from that region; I'm from AZ and I have to make sure I drink lots of water, and apply lotion to ensure my skin retains moisture. I would presume it's the same with horses, only you would want to make sure you apply some kind of conditioner, to make sure the skin stays healthy. None of the horses in my care have dry skin, but I make sure they get some kind of conditioning spray applied periodically; in the warm months they get bathed more frequently, and a regular condition applied, allowed to set, then rinsed.
Hope that helps And welcome to the Forum

Hi ScharmLily! Actually you can call me Liliana just once. I'm double liliana here because everywhere I go Liliana is taken. If I make something up I'm bound to forget who I am. Heh.

Speed Racer - she flakes all over pretty much. Thank you for the input.

mom2pride - if you read this thread again could you suggest a product? Hopefully one you can recommend?

Apart from adding oil to her feed , wash her down with ACV ( apple Cider Viniger) about a 50/50 mix it does wonders!!! it helps with the ph level of her skin and coat , adds a fab shine and is great For almost every skin condition !

Heres a list of things I have treated with ACV
Rain scold
Dandruff
seedy toe
Research it for yourself

Also a tablespoon of acv in her feed will help :)

May we all see horses through the eyes of children

Thank you Shalani. Why, I had completely forgotten about ACV. I know it does work. Thanks, and for the Google search suggestions too.

I like to use Mane and Tail; and I dilute it so I can use it as a leave in between washings.

I also use products I used as a dog groomer; Eqyuss products, Groomer's edge products, and the Coat Handler products.

three letters... MTG!!!!

it really is the greatest stuff in the world. It smells like bacon and can be a bit messy (i apply it with a glove), but I haven't found anything that compares to it. It will eliminate dandruff in a day, along with fungus, rain rot and makes hair grow great in general. I use it for almost everything.

When I got sonny, his tailbone was completely full of dandruff. I literally couldn't even see his tailbone it was so bad. I haven't seen anything like it before. After a little MTG, it was COMPLETELY gone! He is good as new now :). He also gets beat up a lot on the field, so once the wounds are completely healed I put MTG on them to make the hair grow back faster. I also use it on the back of his hind legs, where it some times gets gross from where pee splatters, and it helps a ton. I really do use it all the time :)
