What is this on my horses mane?

Ok I have a picture though it isn't fantastic. Apache has has this stuff since I can remember. I wasn't sure what it was but I just thought it might have been a kind of dandruff. It looks like flakes of skin like dandruff but when I saw the fungus or dandruff thread I thought maybe not. It only shows up in one patch on his mane and its pretty bad at the moment but it just comes and goes. I haven't really done anything for it but I was just wondering what you guys think and what I could do about it? Thanks

To me it just looks like dandruff. I dont know though, sorry. I'd suggest washing it in some quititch though. It seems to help.

Not to worry, it looks to be a simple case of flaky, dandruff. Having had dogs and horses for years if I find an OTC for people that could cause no harm to my animals I will try it for a specific treatment on our 4-legged family. If the dandruff is causing you to be concerned buy a bottle of a shampoo like Head'N'Shoulders or Tegrin and bathe only the mane and or tail with either of those products.

If the dandruff returns after a good shampoo or two and you suspect fungus, then try betadine and water (50/50) on the affected area. It is working for me. Good luck!

My horse has Psoriasis, and he gets large flaky gross yellow goo clumps that come out of his mane and tail. Unfortunately it takes hair with it, if it isn't taking hair is probably isn't psoriasis, but a medicated shampoo for humans OTC, can help greatly
