Everything on a horse grows faster over the summer, mane, tail hooves whether or not topical products are applied.

Not true at all for Ben. His hooves grow quite slow in the summer and his mane usually grows none and then pretty much frys in the sun and I have to cut off a few inches.

People actually do. MTG makes a product for Humans to. It's called SULU Hair MTG

I cannot stress a test spot enough. I had a mare w some hair missing from some scrapes and the MTG made all the hair it touched fall out. She looked way worse after.

Jumping on the 'test it first' bandwagon here. I've used MTG on all sorts of horses and have not had a reaction, but I have seen a horse who has (he was photosensitive as it was. Not sure why they used it so liberally on him without testing it first). You don't want that to be your horse. A short mane is nothing compared to blistered skin.

As for the smell...honestly, it's kind of nostalgic for me. Like kopertox and other barn smells. Doesn't bother me in the least, but you definitely can tell when someone has used it.
