Growing out a short mane..

So my mare had a decently long mane before I pulled it for our english shows..

Anyone have tips on how to help it grow? I'm assuming to just not brush it?

MTG and Olive oil can help it grow out faster, and like you said, try to avoid brushing it often.

Lol. What actually got my mare's mane to grow in nice and thick was to shave it all off and let it grow back.

I second MTG, best product I've found out there, worth every penny!

I didn't have much luck with MTG, just remember that it stinks, it's greasy, the mane will look dirty, and it increases the risk of sunburn.

I've used mtg before

I feel the hassle of MTG wasn't worth the little bit of extra hair growth.

I would just condition it and only use your fingers to untangle any knots.

There are also supplements that help with hair and hoof growth. Anything that helps hooves grow will help hair grow. MSM and Biotin I believe (could be mistaken) are both good options. My mare's mare was rubbed completely bald when I got her, it's been a year on MSM and it's already about 12 inches long xD
