Dandruff On Whole Body?

Recommended Posts

So. my moms mare has dandruff on her whole body. Always had it since we got her. First time we noticed it though we thought she had a reaction to the fly spray we were using, which she did. That was last year. Mom brushes her everyday, usually twice AM/PM while she's eating. Her coat is wicked shiny but she still has the flakes. Not huge flakes. It doesn't spread from horse to horse either. So we know its not rain rot. Its not from over bathing, its still pretty much winter here with a dash of spring on some days. It does seem to subside during the winter months and is flakey spring-fall. Is it something she's missing mineral/vitamin wise in her diet? Oh she's also very easy keeper. About 1 quart of grain a day. Not a high fat grain, basic maintenance grain. 12 protien, 4 fat. Would switching her to a high fat help like a senior or performance grain?

Does she itch on her mane or tail or belly at all?

Have you tried treating with a few betadine baths to rule out fungus?

Got any pics?
