I think we can ALL testify to using MTG by Shapely's. My horse gets TERRIBLE sweet itch in the summer and scratched his tail dock off COMPLETELY!!! Within a couple of months of using it I got about 2 inches added to the tail. I now use it on everything from scrapes and scratches to some fungus. It's a miracle tonic!!! It does smell to high heaven though and is awfully greasy, but I'll take that if it makes my boy feel better!!

MTG is AMAZING in every way possible!! Especially for itchiness.

You probably need to dust her. Poll to dock.

I think we use this kind.

It could be as easy to fix as brushing under her tail head. It might just be itchy if it hasn't been brushed in a while. Just watch she doesn't kick.
