I use MTG as well, on areas where my mare has rubbed her mane and tail. You do get results alarmingly quick, but you have to keep in mind that the main ingredient is relatively caustic, although I'm not sure to what degree it is harmful. MTG stimulates follicular hair growth and you can actually feel heat in the area you applied it. I use it once a month instead of every 7 days like the bottle states. I am seeing alot of new growth, so I don't think cutting down on the applications has affected anything. It's incredibly greasy, but I hear that overuse can actually dry out the skin. I combine MTG with a supplement of flax and biotin. MTG is also great for scratches where hair takes forever to grow back.
P.S If you just got your horse, I would try to correct the problem from the inside out first, it was amazing how proper nutrition and some natural supplements literally changed the quality of my horses mane, tail and coat in a short amount of time.
