What to do with this mane - Is there something going on with it?

Spot's mane needs help, it's been shedding more then usual in spots, and the skin at the base looks dark and dry. I'm not sure if this is normal or if something else is going on. I haven't seen him rub, and his fencing is electric so there's nothing else to rub on besides his feeders which I don't think he could reach that far down on his neck with.

If it is nothing would he look better with a shorter pulled mane or even roached?

Cocanut oil works for promoting hair growth and reliving dry skin. You could try that? Other than that I'm not sure?
