It doesn't make thicker tail/mane? It sure seems like it's doing that for my boy. I am using it on his tail to help with some but itching and seems like his tail has gotten thicker - which it does not need!

I love the stuff. It's really expensive but worth every penny!

Unless it weighs a ton... it's just a horse. Draft horse motto.

I braid without the tailbag. Tried it a couple times with the tailbag. MTG makes the hair so darn slippery that the tail bag and rubberbands you braid with fall out (at least this has been the case for me and a few others I know). I usually apply the MTG in the tail and brush the tail out the day before. The next day I brush the tail out and braid it. Rubberbands tend to stay in better this way. He has a flowing tail with minimal split ends. It does help to trim the split ends to promote healthy hair growth just as it does with us humans. Good Luck

My mare has been backing up to the gate and rubbing her tail. I REALLy don't think it is worms. What could cause her to do this. someone said it could be a "mite". Does MTG work for that???

I can't wait to try this stuff out. I bought it the other day for all the itching we've been having and the fact that he's rubbed his mane off and his tail looks horrendous with all the butt rubbing.

i know this may sound weird but i used it on my hair once. i went to have my hair thinned and she thinned it so much it was almost paper sucks especially in winter. so i was on prenatal vitamins and i used the mane and tail on my hair everyday. i def. noticed a big difference in my hair within a month. i stopped taking the prenatal vits. within a week. it made the thinkness come back in my hair. and gave it a lil length too.

Tail bag

You don't need to use a tailbag but, I think it works better with one...a trick to keep it in is get a plastic needle used for braiding and some string. Sew the string (below the tail bone obviously!) in and out of the tailbag and braid, this will help keep it in.

Good luck with the tail growth! I'm on the way to doing the same thing with my OTTB once the flies are gone

I have tried the three tube tail back, braiding the tail by its self, and even tried braiding the mane. Every time I go back the next day, the braids are gone and the tail bag was M.I.A for nearly three week until I found it under a tree out in the pasture.

It has been about 3 weeks since I started using the stuff. I have gone through one bottle already and heading out for a second. I have noticed some length in the mane, but hard to tell in the tail. I used it about every three days for the first 10 days and then once a week afterwards.
