    Question for the MTG fans

    I got a trial sized bottle of MTG because my show horse has a bald spot on his dock. The bottle says not to let the applied area be in the sun because it could burn them. Can I wrap it in vet wrap to prevent that?

    I've never noticed the bottle said that...I've used it in manes and tails and then left it in the sun???

    I guess it's because of the oil in it...

    I don't see any real problem with it unless your horse is in direct sun all day long...i guess it would be the equivalent of putting sun tan oil on you. (although your horse might smell like a piece of walking bacon ;) )

    I've never actually had a problem with that before, but it's like kickshaw said about the oil.

    If it's that hot outside, your horse will stay in the shade anyway, which will prevent any burning from happening.

    Just to be on the safe side, keep an eye on it.
    You can vet wrap it and it'll still work, that's just an awkward place to keep the vet wrap on.

    If your horse has access to shade, there shouldn't be a problem.

    When they say that, they mean sunburn. So it would be a lot easier for you if you just waited later in the day to put on the MTG... any time after 3pm is a lot cooler then noon, which is on average the hottest time of the day.

    I used MTG on my boy's tail dock too. I just always kept a light sheet or fly sheet on him with a tail flap. He's also white with pink skin back there, so I didn't want to risk it!

    I've never worried about putting it on in the sunshine. Ours stay in the shade during the hottest part of the day. I've never had any problems with it sunburning. Only used it on black/dark horses though.
    My filly Shiloh has had an allergic reaction to something out in the pasture. She had nasty welts all down her legs, chest and neck. I have been giving her feed on antihisamine and dousing her with MTG its really helping. Stopped her from itching herself so badly.
    Gotta love that MTG
