HOW DO GROW MY MARES MANE & TAIL, FAST!?

I have recently bought MTG and have been using it on her rain rot, but I have read it will also do wonders on her mane and tail, is that true?

I really don't want to pull her mane so short to band it for shows, as I think it would look a lot better if it were really long. Does anyone have any tips for me on what to do to make her mane and tail to make them grow as LONG AS POSSIBLE?

It seems like her mane won't grow any longer then it is now [about 3-4 inches short from being longer then her neck.] along with her tail which won't grow any longer then her hock

SO PLEASE! Tips on how I should use MTG to make her mane and tail grow faster, and tips on how to take care of her mane and tail to make them grow are THE BEST!!! Thanks!

MTG has worked well for me when Vida had rubbed her tail from a skin condition. I have a filly that is having problem growing out her mane and tail because it keeps breaking at the ends.
I think it depends on where the problem lies. If the hair itself is weak like my filly, your better off using a hair conditioner or adding a supplement to the diet. If its a skin problem the MTG does work wonders.
Next time I give my filly a bath I plan on using my Matrix Biolage leave in hair conditioner (a people product) on her mane and tail. I've used it on my own hair for years I want to try Eqyss Mega-tek rebuilder ($29.95) http://www.eqyss.com/mega_tek2.asp
The price has been holding me back, but it looks interesting.

Vidaloco -
Hmm, thanks for the details. Now that you mention it, her mane and tail COULD be breaking off at the ends. That would make a lot of since... maybe iwill do BOTH just to check it. =]
I was also thinking of putting her mane up all braided and put a slinkie on her face. I have this one below...

Would that work you think?

MTG is amazing stuff! I love it!

I would apply MTG to her mane and tail everyday for 2 weeks and then slow down with it. After you apply if you should wrap her mane and tail. A slinky (like you have above will work fine) and for her tail just braid it and then vet wrap it.

MTG will work, put it at the root (stinks). You can also use, I think it's called Healthy Hair, it's a moisturizing conditioner, it's pink, you mix it with water and put it in a spray bottle, spray it everyday. Don't brush your mane everyday because that will break it, take it and seperate it into thick braids and let it hang (dont' braid the forelock). And then you can do the same with the tail, braid it and leave it in a thick braid or put it in a tube.....

I agree...MTG with slinky for mane and MTG with vet wrap for tail. I keep my horses tails all in vet wrap unless I am showing. All their tails drag on the ground.

Yeah, I know that putting her tail in a bag will do wonders, but I just don't ever get un-lazy enough to redo it when it falls out... [which it seems like it does no matter what]

Well thanks guys! =]
