Question Why wont they heal?

Comet got his legs all scratched up a few months ago. I wrapped and treated them often but he still has scabby type things. I tried picking some off but no blood. The hair won't grow back. The scabs are soft. What can I do to heal his legs and have the hair grow back?

Sounds to me like they're just scars if there's no fresh bleeding. Throw some MTG on em! It grows hair back and conditions the skin

If they are really scars (usually slightly raised and not as pliable as normal skin), nothing in the world will ever make hair grow back on them.

On the sixth day, God created the Quarter Horse.
On the seventh day, he Painted the good ones.

I'd say stop picking them. The scabs will come off in time. The hair may come back. Depends on the severity of the wound.

I'm not sure that it would work since it's been so long, but pure vitamin e oil is great... helps the hair grow back, too.
Do you have a picture?
