MTG Side Affects?

Does MTG have any side affects that you know of? I'm thinking about getting it for my mare cause right in the middle of her mane it's pretty short. She was rubbing it on the stall rails cause her boyfriend was on the other side but they moved him so she could grow her hair out.

I love MTG and have never had a horse react to it. Smells like crap but it does regrow hair.

The main thing is remember this is OIL based so do not put it on a horse and then turn them out in sunlight!

Be sure you shake the bottle long enough to get the white stuff off the bottom or it wont work

It gave my mare dandruff once. I stopped using it, got rid of the dandruff, and started using it again. It didn't come back.

But I use it on my gelding, too, and he's never had a problem with it.

I put MTG on my geldings mane last week because it resembled a rat nest, and I accidentally went a little overboard. A little goes a really long way! Anyway, today it was still a little greasy and when I brushed it, a lot of hair came out on the brush. So I'd say don't use too much, in my horse's case it's actually making the hair fall out! Figures, with my luck.

I've spent most of my life riding horses. The rest I've just wasted.

Ok thanks. So if I leave it on her overnight it's ok if she goes in the sun the next morning? Or how long is good?

It's meant to be left in, just don't use too much! And really rub it into the roots, that's what helps it grow faster.

I had the dandruff issue as well, with my little guy. Hadn't seen that in the previous three horses I used it on.

I never had any side affects from usage, but it definitely smells like burnt bacon, LOL! It's really good stuff, though.

Success comes a [bit] at a time.
