Today I am gonna fess up to one of my horse care mistakes. Will you Fess up to yours?
Back in March I took Luxxx to the YHS show, just 2 weeks after I bought him. He had to be braided (see pretty pictures here YHS show). The braider said some pieces of his mane were thin so she used some hair spray to make the wispy pieces stay in place. She told me to make sure to wash his mane at the end of the day. Well this was the longest show everrrrr which I did not anticipate so I did not make arrangements for someone to take care of my horses at home. I left the show late, drove 2 hours home, had horses to feed, stalls to clean, and get up and go to work in the morning. Needless to say his mane did not get washed. I'm lucky he even got unbraided.
I came home from work the next day and he had rubbed his mane. Crap. I washed his mane at that point. But it hasn't stopped and it's getting worse. He hardly has any mane left. I have washed, used MTG, used fungus sprays, creams, and EVERYTHING I can think of. 3 months later he still rubs his mane. Believe me, I have learned my lesson! But I beg you, if you have any suggestions to make this stop and grow his mane back, I am all ears!
