I hatee using MTG because it really doesn't work THAT well and it smells terrible. The smell doesn't really come off your hands, either. I use a mixture of cowboy magic and SILK products. My horse's tail grows nice and thick and pretty fast. I just condition it with cowboy magic and braid it up in a nice braid. Then I spray SILK (here
) all over the tail bone and kinda massage it in. Then, put it in a tail sock. I leave it in for a few days then take it out for a day, then put it up for another few days. On the days it stays up, spray a few squirts of the SILK on the tailbone to prevent any itching and to help growth.
It's worked like a charm for me :] the SILK also works FANTASTIC for rain rot spots, blanket rubs or any other bald spots a horse might get. It also helps take away itching. I put it on my horse's face that she had itched most of the hair off of on the stall and it all grew back in about week.
