hey i hav an appy and there a real pains with there main n tails lol but i got told by one of me mates who had the same problem and i tried it and it worked.
All you hav to do is put peanut butter oil in there and just brush it through and leave it and dont brush your horses main or tail till you do this again you only hav to do this probly once or twice a week...
hope this is a bit of help :)

I too have an appy,but luckily her tail isn't thin..But it seems to be getting shorter, I bough "Santa Fe"(it comes in an orange bottle) and i spray it on her regularly and it seems to be working.

Well for starters it would help to have a rug on your horse. This includes neck rug and tail bag. It stops them from rubbing on trees ect and pulling it staight out (also barb wire if you have it, i don't simply because of that reason)

Or some breeds inherit it like the old appy. K hope that helps,

I use the MTG as well.
My quarter horse has a short thin main and a tail a little on the shorter side. I started to use the MTG..but honestly havent been diligent with it. Even with that her main and tail have been growing!

M-T-G love the stuff, hate the smell. I think its a great conditioner too. My horse has a really thick mane and tail but when I use the stinky stuff even after a few weeks its still much easier to brush out. I use it for some tail dermatitis/dry skin it always clears it right up, and to keep her mane and tail thick and long.

For a longer tail, braid it from the bottom of the tailbone on down, and then fold it over itself and but it into a tail bag or a tall sock. For the sock, rip the part that sits on your leg into 2 pieces so it looks like this.
Tie the two ripped parts together and it should hold the tail and enable it to grow longer.

For the mane. Just put it in many braids, this should help it grow longer.
