Mane-Eating and suppliments?

My clyde is in pasture with a shire, who at one point had a long, flowing mane! I'm not sure if my horse is actually eating his mane, or just biting it off. His mane is completely gone now and I feel horrible. My pasture mate uses her shire for her carriage business. A mohawk isn't exactly desirable in weddings. Lol

My clyde is 3 years old. I've been told it's just something young horses do. But, could it be a sign that she is deficient in vitamins or something? Now, when I switched her from a very grassy grass/ alfalfa mix to straight alfalfa, she stopped. But now I plan on switching her to oat hay and I know I need to start supplementing her. My pasture mate has a HUGE, fancy draft show coming up and I'm nervous Tenacity is going to start her mane chewing again. Does anyone have any info or advice for me? Maybe suggestions for supplements? I'm all ears. Supplements are new to me.
