Thumbs up SHOW&TELL YOUR MTG results

I've heard more positive things than negative about the product. Nothing speaks better than a photo! Does anyone have before/after? Or any pix of how well it worked for you? Does anyone have pix of how it DIDN'T work?

Well, I don't have any photos, but it does work! Indeed, indeed. My mares tale was at her hocks, if not above, when I bought her. It's been that way for about 2 1/2 years. I recently (about eight months ago) began using M-T-G and it did wonders! Her tale is now thick, and half way down her cannon! The only thing is-for Diamond at least- it gave her dandruff. I also used it on her mane because some "buddies" tried to sabotage my braiding practice for shows last summer by chewing all her mane off! It brought it back, and within two months I was braiding for hours on end! It is very greasy though, and smells like hickory. I would suggest a tail bag/ braids (just a braid, not folded up, like a button/show braid or anything) so keep all the saw dust, dirt, manure, etc, from getting [permanently] stuck in there.

I'll definitely be trying it on my geldings this summer. Loki's pulled off his shoulder-length mane and it drives me NUTS every time I see it.

Does anyone know if it's OK to use on pasture boarded horses?

^I'm sure it is. It is non-toxic, so if someone scratches on it they will be just fine. The only thing is, I wouldn't bag the tail in the summer because they need it for the bugs.

I'm on pasture board and I use it! I like it. Smells raunchy though.

Smells like icky bacon! Lol. I use it some times. It works GREAT on fungus! We get a lot of rain rot here in florida.

Also try using some olive oil or cocoa nut oil (in the more of a paisty foarm) on the hair. It is a GREAT moistureize for horses and human hair. It has really helped out my dry hands when I use it on Sonador.

Sounds good to me! Tejas isn't too bad in the mane and tail department, but I'd love to encourage his tail to be as thick as possible. We get some pretty bad flies in the summer and the bigger the swatter the better off he is!

Im going to make sure to take before/after shots for you guys!

I love MTG. My gelding got bitten near his tail and proceded to 'itch' his tail off. We were left with a fuzzy stump! I use MTG each time I groom him, just rub a little at the base of his tail. Now 5 months later all the fuzz has gone and it is growing out much quicker and stronger than before. The hair seems much more resistant to breaking.

I just started using it a week ago, I'll take after pictures when there are drastic results! So far though, so great! 1 week into it and her mane AND tail grew 1 inch! It's definitely helping me grow out her bridle path.

When I first started (had never had any special mane or tail treatment done before), her tail was touching the ground, now it drags on the ground if it isn't braided and bagged/tied.

The longest section of mane almost reached her elbow, I am hoping to get the longest part below her elbow- if possible, to her knees.

I hate the smell. I am going to look into the newer stuff on the market....I posted something about it last week.. Dover has it, and it is a 3 step process. I just want to keep the hair from drying out. Especially since I sometimes color his mane.
My guys tail is OK, but it is so striking in color, I am always looing to get it fuller and longer.....
