    What is good for dandruff?

    My new horse has some clumps of dandruff in his mane. Any ideas on how to get rid of it?

    I use M-T-G on my horses tail. She gets flaky dry skin there too.

    Its made by Shapley I'll attach a link so you can find someone in your area who carries it or a web dealer. Its awful smelling stuff but it works great on all sorts of skin conditions;

    MGT, as said earlier. It also helps the mane to grow back if it has come out.
    Cowboy magic's krud buster works nice.
    Listerine
    Any anti bacterial stuff will work well.

    I use Goo Grow oil (found at your local Wal-Mart). It is made for African American hair and does an excellent job. Put a little bit at the base of the mane and\or tail and massage in.

    I would first get some dandruff shampoo like Head n Shoulders. Scrub the crest of the mane really well. Then you'll want a spray leave in conditioner like Healthy Hair Conditioner (you dilute it with water, the best spray in conditioner) near the crest and rub into skin. You don't need MTG since you are not trying to really grow the mane out. MTG is great if you need length fast but it smells and is very oily.

    A little corn oil in the diet will get rid of the dandruff quickly.
