Fur Growth
 
Hey all :) When we first got our Arab, the previous owner had NEVER taken off his halter. He wore it 365 days a year, even while turned out to pasture. When we first saw him, the sores on his nose were rubbed raw and bleeding.

Her reason being was that he was "impossible" to catch without a halter on. Of course when he came to our place we took it off, and... hes a charm to catch lol.

Anyways he has these awful scars now. They are healed, but I was wondering if there was a product that might help the fur to grow back. He also has some scars over his body from living in a large herd of horses that could use some touching up too. Any advice?

Well, I know vitamin E works on human scars, so I should think it would work on other animals as well...

Oh, good idea!! Thank you I'll see if I can find some capsules and try that out <3

I think I will give that a go as well. The scars on Lili are quite old, so I don't know that it will do much good, but it won't hurt, either.
