So one of my sales colts got himself cast and removed a bunch of hair. Any good ideas for covering up the bald spots? For my dark horses I use a sharpie, but not sure what to do with my redhead.
I thought you meant covering up the chestnuts themselves--the weird knobs on their legs. I was thinking, "aren't they SUPPOSED to be hairless?".

I didn't know they made the chalk in chestnut too. Hmm too late to order for this year but I will pick some up for the future. Thanks!
Shapleys makes a great show touch-up spray (pretty much horse spray paint) that i really like... we use the white version on our greys if they have any hairless spots
My horse has a bunch of hairless spots because of his rowdy turnout group. There is this stuff called MTG- "Mane, tail, groom" that I started putting on the spots. I didnt think it would work but it is unbelieveable how fast the hair grows back!!

Please, I implore you...go get some Shapley's Touch Up Spray and throw away the sharpie. It comes in nearly every color you'll ever need.

Any secrets for making shapleys look natural? It is always the wrong color even Black and so stiff and brittle looking. I've gone back to the spray repeatedly always with horrible results.
I've found with Shapley's you normally need to mix a few of the colors on your horse. For example, most chestnuts look best with both the palomino and the chestnut color layered.
I like mares. They remind me of myself: stubborn know it alls who only acknowledge you if you have food.
