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!!
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?
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.
