Equine Facial Hair Loss

How to treat and avoid baldness on horse’s faces

By Ruthann Smith

Horse With Hair Loss and Dry Skin


Hair ‎Loss‬ on faces is a grooming‬ error. If you leave sweat on ‎horses‬' skin, it dries out and pores get clogged. This also leads tack and halters to rub. There may be bacteria issues as well, but the solution is always the same: CLEAN the face before and after ‪riding‬. A damp towel can do wonders. Vigorous grooming stimulates natural protective oils as well as exfoliates to release them. So, gently ‪groom‬ faces well.

If you do wrestle with hair loss, Lucky Braids All-In-One Horse Shampoo will help promote healing and quick re-growth of hair from loss or rubs‬.

ESPAÑOL- El sudor reseca la piel y obstruye los poros. Lava la cara con una toalla húmeda (cuando hace calor) antes y despuès de montar. Sepillando y usando bien la toalla, va a traer aceites naturales a la piel. Tambien, quita piel muerta. Como resultado, el cabello estará más saludable y humeda.
