All of the hairs on this tail are missing along with the mane at the withers. There is no itching and the horse isn’t bothered at all by it. This mare just shipped in from California a month ago to NY. I suggested that all Selenium (Se) be removed from the diet because one of the classic signs of Se toxicity is mane and tail hair loss. Other signs include hoof damage at the coronet area with the potential sloughing of the hoof. This horse’s hooves were normal.
