Wow Indy Horse great results. Pardon this stupid question what is MTG and does anyone know if it is available in Australia or a similar product. I would love to give it a go as my boy has rubbed his mane out this Winter really bad.

MTG stands for Mane Tail Groom. You apply it on the tail bone and the base of the mane and it produces amazing results.

I'm not sure if you can get it in Australia or not. I get it at my local feed store. You could check there or see if you can get it online.

I'd also like to try and find it in Australia as well.
My friends kids are going to states soon and their yearling has chewed off part of one of the ponies manes!

Tell them to look for it and maybe bring you a bottle

I get it online from Jeffers. I don't know if they'll ship to Australia.

I put MTG in my horses tail every other day. But I have used it on him before, putting it on every day. It probably doesnt help, just wastes. But I really want to boost growth.

Does it work on people? Ever since I had chemotherapy my hair grows SO maddeningly slow.

Spent a whole hour today laying in a pasture, waiting for a sparkling vampire to show up. Alas, I woke up and looked over, only to find a mound of horse crap. Sigh.

That's a really good question. First off, I hope that you are recovering well :) MTG is really, really oily. I bet you could go to a pharmacy or something with it and ask. You may get funny looks, but it may be worth it. :)
Good luck! I'll try to think of things for humans for hair growth!

I notice that a few of you have said to make sure there is no reaction. What type of reaction to look for? I have never heard of this so sounds like amazing stuff. Obviously it works well looking at the photos. What is in it?

If I remember correctly the ingredients are pretty basic, it's made from petroleum, sulfur, zinc, glycerin, cade oil. I don't know much about allergic-type reactions to it, but I've always heard it's bad to put it in and then turn the horse out in high UV sunlight, because it can accelerate burning - sort of like how we all used to tan with baby oil in the 80's. :)
