Mane Conditioning?

My Tennessee Walker has a really short and ratty mane. We moved him from a bad barn a while ago and he had HORRIBLE worms. They're all gone now and have been gone for a while, but his mane still remains fizzy and broken. Any products that would help? I already use MTG for the mane growth once a week and I use mane and tail conditioner when I see him. Are their any supplements I can give him that would help?

I would be interested in this as well. My new horse, Dixie, was kept outside all the time, and the sun has FRIED her mane. I've been wondering what kind of conditioner would help with that. Now that she's in the barn during the hottest part of the day, her mane is starting to look better.

A feed through fat supplement, such as Cocosoya or vegetable oil, rice bran, or flax should help with mane and tail growth. Other than that, keep using the MTG and always use a gentle comb, never a brush, on your horse's mane.

I've spent most of my life riding horses. The rest I've just wasted.

Well for my horse I use Mane and tail. She is an app. Quarter horse and when I first got her, the people I bought her from said that she rubbed her mane and tail against trees, the result being she had just about no mane. I used mane and tail every day on her for about a week and her hair came back thick with a shine to it. It looks very pretty I have had many people ask what I use to get the shine in. Hope it helps.
