Sulfur Of Flowers + Vaseline= 4-6" of hair growth a month?

Okay I am sure you guys have heard of 'Fairy Tale Manes and Tails'.

Well I know its a scam but from what I have been told people have used sulfur of flowers and vaseline, it makes their horse's hair grow 4-6" a month.

It also helps if you don't groom your horse's tail as much, and use a brush like this:



Any thoughts? Have you tried it? I've heard many Gypsy Vanner owners use it on their horses to make their feathers/manes/tails grow.

Thanks!

I used MTG, which has sulfur in it and it worked really well!!

The only downside is that some horses may be allergic to the sulfur.

Thats what I heard! Did you add more sulfur to MTG? Or did you just use what MTG gave you?

How long did your horse's mane/tail grow within a month?

Lol so many questions.

I just left it as it was.

Well, i used it on her tail and it was shorter than her fetlocks. Over the course of the winter if grew long enough than an 2/3 inches were dragging on the ground (I cut it, but it made the end of her tail thicker)

I also had it loosely braided and bagged so it wasn't dragging in mud.
Also since it was braided, I really didn't have to brush it, just untangle a little with my fingers

Just above her fetlocks. It was long, but not touching the ground.

I have use MTG for several years now. I use it weekly on all my horses and then braid their mane and tail. All my horses have very long mane and tails. My two year old filly's mane is already hangs down her neck. It is longer than the other colts that is the same age she is. I really think it works. I just hate the way it smells and my horses mane looks terrible all winter. It looks dirty. But the first warm day in Spring, I wash it and I love the look of their healthy manes. I also use coconut oil to make it shine in the Spring and smells great.

Thanks for the replies everyone!

You can get it at Amazon. But other people have said you can get it at a store or a pharmacy store. I haven't found it yet. ):

Here is some, I think I'm going to buy it and try it.
I'll post next month to see how fast it grew or if it grew at all!

Meh, if MTG has sulphur in it, then I don't really think sulphur does a good job for growing out hair... The good results from MTG were outweighed by the bad results, by far.
