    Hey farmerjeff, probably just dandruff. Does it seem to bother him?

    Is that your colt in your avatar? Cutie!!!

    Sounds like dry skin, you could take some baby oil and rub it in. I wouldn't suggest MTG on young tender skin.

    Add some fat to his diet, like flax meal or rice bran. That will help him from the inside out. If he's not getting a quality fortified feed, or not much, then a good vitamin/mineral supplement will help too. I like GrandVite or SmartPak's SmartVite line.
