Apply MTG once a week to tail bone. It's like magic.

I just finished posting this on another thread here......

Managing a Long Mane: Makeover Edition

I was unable to copy my post-it is on page 2.

Seems to be pertinent.

I do cut them every few weeks to keep them healthy but his is always so thin.

I am trying to do the SAME thing. Although my Paints have GREAT tails... long and thick and healthy. It's their manes that are short, and they have almost NO bangs.

I have been brushing them and applying MTG once a week to the root area. Hoping for some results, but I am totally with you here!

Its a hair conditioner for horses. Mane Tail Groom. You should be able to get it at any store that sells that type of product...

MTG can help, also you may want to consider adding rice bran to his diet. It tends to help with a healthy looking coat/mane/tail. If he's pulling parts of it out, you may want to protect it with a tail bag.

Also, remember that some horses simply don't grow pretty tails - but if you want to show, you can always buy a tail extension for him!

He doesnt pull it out. I do wanna show but he will be a gammer or maybe a roping horse he's pretty calm when I throw stuff around him he doesnt flinch if it hits him. He's not going to be a Westren pleasure or trail horse.
