MTG - Post your before and after pictures!

I'm trying to get Berdi's mane to grow thicker and longer. Her tail is very thick and long so I'm not worried about it but her mane could use some help. I heard that MTG is really good for growing manes so I got a bottle the other day. Post your before and after pictures if you have some and any stories of your horses or horses you have know that had it used on them.

I'm also braiding her mane to keep it from catching on things as easy. Hopefully that will help too. And I'm not going to comb it hardly ever - just run my hands through. If you have any other hints or ideas I'd love to hear them!

Here is a picture of Berdi now. I hope to post updated pictures of a longer mane soon!!

I don't have any photos, but let's just say that no one believes me at shows when I tell them my two year old filly's tail is completely natural. MTG works wonders :) Good luck with your mane!

Eragon has some rub off marks on his bridle area so I'm going to take a before pic today and bring my bottle of MTG.

Thank-you both for the replies! Glad to hear that it really works well! I had another question. I was wondering if it is safe to apply it twice a week. Would that speed up growth or is that just overdoing it?

I put MTG in every few days. Probably every two, to be specific.

Awesome! I will try that - I read on the bottle to do it weekly but if I can do it more often I think I will. I want her mane to grow quick and then I can get that grease out of her hair! lol!

Myhorsesonador - It will be interesting to see how MTG helps your horses mane. I thought of trimming Berdi's mane all one length so it grows even but I'm scared to do it right now!

Just be careful with it. I would start out twice in one week and see how your horse reacts to it. :)

Here's my before and after!


Claymore, who had rubbed his mane and forelock almost completely off in his previous home. There was some new growth at this point, obviously, but not much. This is before I started his MTG regime, in December. Picture was taken November '09.



I didn't want to leave MTG on during the day in the winter sun, so this was my routine. Apply MTG at night while stalled to mane, tail, forelock. Braid where long enough to braid, and bag tail. In the morning, rinse out MTG, rebraid where applicable, turn out in pasture during day. Repeat daily. :) I stopped applying MTG in April to his mane, but still do it once a week on his tail.

Claymore a few weeks ago

Thejessiefox - I'll do that and make sure she doesn't have a reaction to it!

That is really great Indyhorse! It really grew out his mane and tail. Thanks for posting those pictures!
