Harley's tail is so short!!

I want it to grow, and grow QUICKLY!! Will it grow faster if I braid it (after fly season, of course), or would it be better to buy the Mane and Tail Growth? Which will work quicker, and how quickly should I expect it to grow? Like an inch a month, or what?

I think you should try the MTG. It works wonders!

Success comes a [bit] at a time.

I've heard braiding breaks the hair a lot faster. I know it does with braiding the mane.

Good luck and whatever you find that works, let us know.

Unless it weighs a ton... it's just a horse. Draft horse motto.

I second that.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.

I've heard that too and noticed it with my own hair. You could try just wrapping later instead of braiding.

Ok, so if I use the MTG, how much does it grow? Just on average? LIke an inch a month? Or will it take a year????

I'd like his tail to grow about 6 - 8 inches.

Ok, I just ordered MTG online. I couldn't find it in either tack shop in town, so I just ordered it. It was "Shapely" brand, I believe. Hope that's a good brand. Anyway, I can't wait to get it and see if it really works. I want his tail to be really long and thick by next spring. And his mane. He's a huge (muscular) horse, so he just looks ill-proportioned with a short tail and mane.

Yep, Shapley's MTG is the way to go. I know on the back of the bottle it says it can have up to three inches in hair growth in just one month. I am pretty sure you apply it once a week, that is what I do and Cloe's (my mare) mane has definitely grown!

Up to 3 inches in 1 month??? WOW!!! I can only hope that's what happens.

As soon as it comes in, he's getting a bath and I'm going to start using it.

I thought it was going to be expensive. But I ordered it online for $14.00. Shipping was $7, but still, I thought I would have to pay $30+ just for the product.

Anyway, I'll let y'all know if it works miracles!!
