I just bought M.T.G for our horses mane and tail growth and hair growth on their bodies. I just want to know if it's as good as they say. I'm worried about a reaction. I have a Paint horse and my Dad has a Morgan horse. Does it matter the breed? Is a reaction more or less likely to happen?

It has always worked really well on my horse with no reaction. I make sure to wear gloves when applying because it reeks!

My horse had a bad reaction to it. His pulled off hair on his legs. Around his tail head and along with his mane. It was bad. It made his hair grow back funny for months. I will never use the stuff again. If I want a long mane and tail. I start with good food.

I have used it few times for various reasons not for mane and tail growth. It does smell really bad. The only precaution I have is do not use it on pink skin areas it will cause them to sunburn because it is mainly oils.

Used it for a tail fungus on one of my mares and it worked great. The smell reminds of wet burnt wood like after a campfire is put out.

Used it for rain rot too and it worked great. Gsww5 is correct look out for white areas.

I use it for fungal issues such as rain rot or scratches but I would never use it for mane and tail because it is so smelly and greasy! It does work well for the fungal issues though! I keep some on hand just in case. What's wrong with your horses mane and tail? It wont help thicken already existing hair, only genetics can factor there. I imagine if your horse is missing chunks of hair it may help grow faster but that's the extent

My horse also had a bad reaction to it (allergy?) It appeared to burn his skin, it became all blistered and oozing, especially along his neck under his mane. I will never go near the stuff again.
