Don't fret! Hahah it will eventually grow out even if you don't apply any product :) When I got my QH Nahvar he has a very (and I mean VERY) short tail and he was 4 years old, When I brought him home all I ever did was brush when he was caught but didn't braid it because I tried that once with his forlock and he ripped nearly all of it out.. :/ now he is 8 and sporting a ground length thick, black glossy tail! I believe that it is because where he used to be boarded the other horses may have chewed on it. I have a friend that used to keep her arab gelding with a goat and the goat ate the hair off the horses tail :/

He might miss his lead but he'll never break my heart <3
I spin to win, and ride the slide... I'm a reiner

Both sire and **** have long ones. Then I have others that are thick and wavy and so on. Everyone is different. My little spotted mare has a beautiful mane and foreloc is short??? Don't figure. Hope you can find something that works.
do something more than do nothing better
Thanks

I have a part appaloosa! Lol, I use MTG as well, and when brushing I use veteroline and am very careful to not pull out hairs, His mane will never grow longer than 7 inches but I keep it cut short for showing anyway.. his tail is looking beautiful!

My b.o told me about this concauction with listerine in it that she says works better than mtg though.. try googling it.

I have used the listerine concussion and did not like it for my horse but I think it depends on what you are trying to do. I had a friend that used it cause her horse had a fungus in her tail and it worked great.

live for the moment.
