Growing a mane?

My gelding's mane has never really been very long. I tried roaching him once and he looked awful, so I eventually just let it grow again and now it's only three or four inches long and I would like to grow it longer for the flashy effect. Any ideas?

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

don't brush it unless it really really needs it. That will keep you from breaking the hairs

MTG works miracles! Its the only product that I know of that works real well, but boy does it work!

Original M-T-G (Equine - Grooming - Horse Shampoo Conditioner - Conditioners)

I love the stuff! It does stink something awful but I just wear gloves when applying it, you should be able to get it at any like tractor supply or fleet farm.

I swear by the stuff! Im using it right now on my paint geldings mane (he got really sick in the spring and started to loose his mane) - his tail (got put with a young horse at my barn and that horse ended up being a tail chewer. Caught it early tho so I am just using it on the base of his tail and its working great) - and on a spit on his leg where he nicked it on the feeder. I love the stuff!

This is what you get with MTG. I use it on all my horses. I love the stuff.
