    I do not know the history, vet thinks this is an old injury, maybe a rope rubbing burn at a young age. It is quite sensitive and he does not like alot of attention given to the area. This is bothersome to me as it does not hair up and whenever I try to protect it with sunscreen it becomes a dirt magnet. Is there a solution I am not aware of to help protect/ encourage hair growth?? Thanks for any suggestions. I do have him on skin/hair suppliments.

    Try Vetericyn HydroGel,on the bare spot , one of our mares had a bare spot on her face and it’s healed, it’s awesome stuff, we use it all of our animals and even ourselves. Our vets use it on themselves too.

    Calm coat maybe? You can spray it on so you don’t have to actually touch and irritate the area. However if it is tender I would be highly suspicious of an underlying problem that is either chronic or has not healed yet.

    I would be checking for tender spots around the spine/rump and pay very attention to how the horse moves/carries itself.

    Agreed. If its tender, I’d say there is probably something going on. I’d give your vet a call and discuss. They may need to come out and check it out.

    Fishy!
