MTG questions

Is this the right one? Shapley's Original M-T-G™ - Skin & Coat Care

How exactly do I use it? I can't braid or put on tail bags, but will it still help just to put it on?

Is it slippery? I want to use it on one horses mane, but I can't if it will make it slippery because then the reins will be slippery

How often do I put it on?

Thanks guys!

Put it on once a week. It's NASTY stuff! Smells like barbecue (or bacon to some people). SHAKE WELL put it in your hands and massage into your horses mane and tailbone.

I always use gloves, it is hard to get the smell off your hands.I just squirt a little on the base of the mane and tailbone and rub in, also you can use it on healed up sores to help grow hair back.You can use it daily, but I heard it is not good to let the horse out in the sun after you put it on, so I always apply it at night right before it gets dark.It is really good stuff lots of uses for it.

Thanks guys!

Does it only help with lenght, or will it help make their tails/manes thicker?

I'm not sure about making it thicker, but it will make it grow

Ugh, I hadn't heard of having to keep it out of the sun. I'm only at the barn during the day and the pony that Rocket is in with won't let him keep a sleezy or tail bag on.

A friend of mine used it on one of her horses on a saddle sore; the hair grew back, but the problem was that the horse is a red color and it grew back white. So now she has a white circle on her wither.

Maybe it was a scar? Scar tissue usually grows white hair

I use gloves and put it in a suringe to put it exactly where I need it. It doesn't do any good just to put it on the hair. You need to apply it to the skin. It is extremely oily, so a little goes a long way. Apply it directly on the base of the mane and base of the tail.
As mentioned before, one application will last you a whole week. The stuff is nasty, yes, but it does amazing things! Whiskey's tail grew 6 inches in less than a year and that was only applying it roughly 2x a month.
