Reducing scar appearance

Hi everyone,

My young Arab mare got her back legs cut up quite badly about six months ago and now they've healed, the scars are typical dark grey, raised criss-crosses, with no hair growing over them. She is light-grey, almost white, and was previously unmarked.

It may be that she will never grow hair over the scar tissue, but it seems to me that I once heard that by putting a 'sugar/water' paste over scars it helps reduce the scar tissue. Or maybe that just worked in the early healing stages.

It's not just the cosmetic appearance I'm concerned about; it just seems like if it were less raised and vulnerable it wouldn't be quite so susceptible to reopening the wounds. Anyone with experience about reducing the appearance of scar tissue?
