Pecking order scuffs and scrapes?

Ok - Carolina is most definitely at the bottom of the pecking order in the barn. She's got a few bald spots in her rump from it. Anything I can put on them to help the hair grow back?

They should grow back without any help. Depending on the length of her hair, it can easily take a month or more, though.

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

You can use some vitamin E capsules. You can get them at Walgreen's, CVS, etc. Poke them with a safety pin, squeeze some of the oil on to the spot and massage it in. Between the oil and the massage, it stimulates the spot and helps the hair grow back.

My poor DJ ranks 10th in our little herd of horses - and we only have five horses! He tangled with the stallion, who chomped chunks out of his butt and his back. DJ eventually jumped the fence to get away from him - it took hours to find him! Now DJ is kept in the lot next to the house. It's easier for my husband to visit him (hubby doesn't get around very well) and the stallion is happier, too. They are best buds as long as there is a fence between them. We have the daughter's mare in the lot with DJ because we are weaning her colt and trying to get some weight on her before winter gets here. She and DJ get along okay - as long as DJ doesn't find something Ginger thinks looks good to eat. She'll run him off of it in a heartbeat - so he still has some little boo boos. Their just spots where the hair pulled out - no broken skin like from the stallion. His winter coat is starting to come in, so the spots are becoming less noticeable, fortunately. Pretty soon, we can turn the mare back into the pasture and DJ will be all the safer for it. Since the lot has a common fence with the pasture, DJ won't be lonely - the other horses tend to stay up that way anyway...
