I have a question about tail growth.
Sonya's tail has not been growing for about 2 months. She is almost 10 months preggers, so would that have anything to do with it? I have cut the dead hair off the ends to try and help the new hair grow.
I personally think it would be hard to tell how much a tail grew over such a short time period and over winter. That said when my mare was pregnant her tail happened to grow alot more. I cut 10" off a couple of times to keep it from dragging the ground.
MTG does work great... (and it smells so good... reminds me of bacon and makes me hungry every time I use it... lol)
3-in-1 Machine Oil works well, too (and it smells good, too... or maybe I'm just weird and like strange smells)
Other than that, I feel yor pain! My mare's tail doesn't hardly grow much at all (even iwth MTG and Machine Oil... it just gets thicker and thicker...... it gets a certain length and brooms out... Lol, but I've learned to love it.
10% sulphur gel on once a week works just a little better than mtg. But I still love mtg (it works best if you apply a little everyday.) Good luck!!! I am still growing out my arabs tail. He ripped it all out in a fience!!
