Growing back white hair

I don't know if this belongs in this section but I figured this was the best spot to ask. My horse had a pretty bad wound on his leg a while back and it took about 7 months to heal. His leg is back to normal, only thing is there's only skin and no hair growing back, he has white stockings on both hind legs which is where he got the wound and since it was white hair could explain why its not growing back, I gave it a few months and still no hair. I recently bought a bottle of MTG which I've heard could help but I was wondering if anyone else has any insight for me. Thanks!

If he has significant scar tissue it may never grow back.

My TB gelding has a very bad scar on his right back leg that has no hair on it.

There's nothing about white hair that makes it any less likely to grow back as any other color.

I don't even think it's scar tissue its just bare skin. My horse is a Thoroughbred/ Quarter Horse mix and I notice his skin is very sensitive around the leg area and very easily gets cuts he has some other small spots missing on his white hair from minor cuts and the hair just doesn't grow back or takes a long time to do so
