Regrow a mane?

The horse I just bought was boarded with a mare who when she got bored, ate his mane. I've heard of his this problem but I never really thought it was a common one except among foals who eat their Dam's tail.

Anyway, he's not a nice nude spot on his neck, but if I fold his mane over the opposite way, it covers it. I wouldn't mind except It makes him look sick, like he's got a disease or something. I had it checked out and he's healthy, it's just where his hairs been chewed off/pulled out. Is there anything I can do to stimulate regrowth? Will it regrow?

Sure it will grow back :) I have a yearling who rubbed her mane off on a fence. I use MTG on it, but I got a recipe from someone on here for mix of 1/3 listerine 1/3 ac vinagar and 1/3 water with a dab of baby oil mixed in a spray bottle that they said worked just as well. I haven't had a chance to use it yet as I still have MTG to use up.

MTG? Where can I get MTG? I'll try that recipe too. :) Thanks for the help. I was afraid I'd have a bald horse.

I wasn't sure if it would because some horses have like, scars, where there is no hair and I wondered if that would happen to his mane but now I realize the skin wasn't damaged, just the hair. Silly me.

Its Shapleys MTG and if you can't find it at your local tack/supply store I think I got it through Jeffers vet. Supply jeffersequine.com . Be warned it smells nasty :P you can check it out at http://www.shapleys.com/company.aspx

Thanks. I have a feeling listerine and vinagar would smell to pleasant when mixed either. I'll surely look into it. :) I'd like to take him to some halter shows since his ground manners are beautiful but I don't think I'll hardly please the judges withmane missing.

Camrosa is excellent for hair growth. I'm starting to use in on my stallion again. He has sweet itch, or so we thought. We found out that it may be a reaction to straw. We put him back on shavings the other day, and he hasn't scratched. So all we have to do now, is put camrosa on his mane, and it will start to grow again. It grew about an inch in a week and a half, maybe a few more inches.

Someone cut off my qh mane almost completely in the barn I kept them. She had nice long mane in morning, and nothing left in the afternoon (thank God, at least the front part left over!). Not sure who did it and why, but it obviously wasn't chewed off, but cut. She grow it back, however it took over a year, and at some parts it's still growing. But she didn't have any problems with it (just looked ugly). I didn't use anything - just let it go itself.

Thanks for the help. I'm trying the vinagar water and listerine combonation with baby oil.

I'll check out what Camrosa is, I'm not sure I've ever heard of it.
