i'm borrowing a horse for a rodeo at the end of april and this poor girl needs some tlc. she needs weight and she has been rubbing her belly on palmettos so theres like no hair under there. she's been doing it on her face too. i've heard that burnt motor oil on the spots will make it better and make the hair grow back? has anyone ever used this?

There are alot of off the shelf ointments for skin and so forth, but I agree, if this is going to be a performance horse just call a vet first off and find out what the skin problem is. Most likely somthing easily fixed. Horses rub in the spring when they are shedding but not near as much as cattle usually do.

i've seen her do it a few times she'll walk over the smaller bushes and rub her belly. she went to see the vet the other day to get her update on her coggins and he told my gramps on what to get for her to stop.
