My incredibly cute and sweet buckskin gelding managed to roll in a fire ant bed a few weeks ago, and had a BAD reaction to the bites. He had huge welts that eventually broke open to big open sores. Well, all of that has healed (topical treatments and oral antibiotics later), but he now has huge bald spots where the welts were. He just looks awful. What product have you used that really encourages the hair to grow back???
MTG is supposed to be good for that, but I just use Corona...works wonders on my kids that LOVE to scratch themselves up before a show! My mare just changed feilds recently and got into a fight with the gelding, she had some lovely bite marks on her tush, they didnt break the skin, just took all the hair off. After a couple of days of Corona she almost looks normal now
Worked really wel for me, my mare has a scratch on her head (from being an idiot) that healed, dabbed some MTG there was hair growth in 3 weeks.
Worked really well where a pasture mate ate off her mane too, took three months (her mane was quite long) but it all grew back.
I am trying to grow a tail out now, so this is helpful! I'm using MTG, and will update as to how it works. I've had good luck on this with rainrot, but I HATE the way it smells (kind of like icky bbq sauce)
My understanding was that MTG wasn't great if the horse is going to be out in the sun a lot - interaction?
I've been very happy with Dermafas www.dermafas.com it has Vitamin E and a bunch of other great stuff in it. We believe it helped our horse regrow what hair was going to grow post barn fire burns. You want to promote healthy skin and hair follicles, without clogging pores
Prep H has urea in it which promotes hair regrowth and is also a good idea.
