I had a horse that had a good 8 inches of mane rubbed out by his neck cover every year (I had to braid in extra yarn when I showed because it wasn’t long enough). I took a good look at his neck cover and found that the the seam across the top puckered right where his mane was being rubbed out, that’s what was causing the problem. I got him one of these to use instead of the hood http://www.sstack.com/Horse-Blankets-And-Sheets_Slickers/UltraFlex-Polar-Fleece-Lined-Lycra-Stretch-Winter-Slicker/. I only ever put the hood on him a couple of times after that, if it got really cold I would add it over the sleazy.
