Ok, I'll keep my fingers crossed and stick with the MTG. Thanks for the tips, Britt, I'll start applying it just once a week. And he's protected from the (rare) sunshine by a blanket and tail bag.
Kim, that's funny about Angel's fake pregnancy! My horse seems to grow longer, thicker white hair than brown. Strange!
And definitely, the white shedded out earlier than the brown.
Yeah, my local tack shop has a crazy markup! It's not even local really...it's like a 1/2 hour drive. They're really the only tack shop in an 80 mile radius, so I guess they can jack up their prices and people will still shop there. I just go there to bring my blankets for cleaning (surprisingly, only like 8 bucks) and thought I'd pick up the MTG so I didn't have to wait to have it shipped from online. Didn't even realize the price until I got home and looked at my receipt.
