MTG attracts dirt on my horses white tail, mane and forlock so I don't use it. I use a detangler that doesn't have alcohol as an ingredient because it dries out the hair. Then I use the body brush on the tail and mane. I put the tail end on the top of my leg and start at the bottom and work my way up. Once the bottom is tangle free, I divide the tail in fourths and work each piece separately up to the base of the tail. If you look at the body brush when have finished and you have done it correctly, you will only have 2 or 3 hairs that you've lost.

I have used MTG on my mustang. It's seriously a miracle. I don't have a great picture of his mane right now...but you can see how long it's grown.



Nowadays...



It's past the bottom of his neck. And this is not a very good mane time for him...his mane got a little wild when I didn't brush it and eventually I had to work it all out. Which led to some breakage and thinning out...but MTG will seriously work, you just have to get past the smell.

You cannot change genetics. Hair can only be as thick as the folicles allow.

MTG does NOT make hair grow. The bottle plainly says ENCOURAGES hair growth. Encourages does not equal make.

That's very true; but, it's worth a shot...there are things you can do to see if your horse's mane and tail have the potential to grow.

For me, Bandido must have the genetics for a beautiful mane and tail...but, I will say that MTG definitely sped up the growth of it.

This was my PERSONAL experience with the use. If you'd like to say that you tried it and it didn't work for you, feel free; but I'm pretty sure you can't legitimately claim to know what worked or didn't work for me.

I am going to borrowsome tips ;) but for detangling without the thinning I use cowboy magic on a stiff brush and brush over the mane, tail, and forelock
