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?
