Reply To: Thinning mane, etc.

If you do feel that the thinning could be due to the mane’s being broken off (rather than falling out, or growing in thinly), check your hay feeder, particularly if other herdmates are suffering from the same problem. As odd as it may sound, the wrong kind of hay feeder can actually shear off sections of the horses’ manes as they withdraw from it, and the problem can be solved by changing to a different type of hay feeder.
