Old scars, growing hair back.

I just got a new horse today, and he has TONS of scars, like, 100+, on his neck, back legs, and face. I think it may have been from the racing industry, but the ones on his neck look like he had an allergic reaction and it wasn't treated correctly.

I will be showing him this summer, and I would like to know if theres anything I can rub into his scars daily that will help soften the scars and grow hair back? Something non potent because he has sensitive skin.

Thanks tons guys!

Stacey

I have used Corona Ointment before with good luck, on fresh scars. It's 50% lanolin and pretty gooey. Put it on daily.

I can't actually remember the name, but it comes in a little green tin with a picture of a cow on it, you can get it at most tack shops, It is for cow udders. It works wonders on softening the skin! And it is fairly cheap! I've used it for years on scars and scabs etc. and never found anything better.

I've had a lot of luck with MTG. It's greasy, but seems to stimulate hair growth.

MTG is the stuff IF you remember to NOT use it in sunlight and your horse isn't allergic to the sulfur base!!!

By not use it in sunlight does that mean to put it on in the evening so he doesn't go out in the sun with it on?

NOTHING makes hair grow - except maybe rogaine.

Clean and conditioned hair has an easier time growing if the pores are not plugged with product.

Yes make sure if you are using MTG not to use it in the sunlight... it will burn whereever you put it if you do!!!!
