It kind of smells like a bbq pit to me lol but it is fantastic stuff. Just don't put it in a spray bottle. Not sure why, but it won't work the same. I usually would just put it in my hand and rub it in

Smells like bacon grease to me, and feels like it too! Lol I hate the smell and feel of it but it does work great. I would suggest wearing latex gloves though because it takes a few application of strong dish soap to get the greasy feeling off your hands. Ick xp

I bow down to MTG, but also good supplements. Don't over brush the hair or brush at all, because that will be damaging to the current hairs. Make sure you check the dock as well for dryness, because it should be well conditioned and oily to ensure healthy growth.

I've also read that the sun can be damaging to a struggling tail, more specifically the dock area, and it might help to keep a fly sheet on him temporarily, or any other UV protection available.

Hope all goes well!

Try a mixture of mgt or whatever and equss, so one, one day and try the other a day or 2 later and repeat, that may help

Madhatter. You've raised a good point. Perhaps it is bacon grease. Bacon grease is good for helping heal small wounds on horses, like bug bites, etc. For those who cook bacon just pour the grease into an inch of water. Refrigerate and the grease will float to the top and set.
