MTG, works wonders :) I use it on my broodmares after babies have destroyed their tails using them as pacifiers (have yet in 30 years found something that keeps them from chewing them!) My mare that had a foal last year and isn't having anymore had hers pretty much chewed off to her hocks...I've used MTG on her weekly since the foal was weaned and it's to her fetlocks now :)

Fair warning, it is some foul smelling stuff, wear gloves! It kinda smells like a mix of sulphur & smokehouse bacon. ICK.

It's hair. It'll grow back. Doesn't even need any fancy-schmancy conditioners to do it, just time.

MTG will definitely cut that time down, though! Stay away from the clippers/scissors/etc!!

I have not found MTG to quicken the growth on any horse I own. I suppose it would not hurt to try it . But like SR said, all it needs is time.

I heard about MTG but I'm kind of a skeptic about it and I'm not sure if I should buy it. I don't really have the time to wait for his mane and tail to grow out cause I have senior pictures to take this summer and he's going to be in a bunch of them. Thanks for the advice :)

There really is not anything else you can do. There is no magic way to make the hair appear.

Try the MTG if you want to. I doubt it will hurt anything (other than smelling bad and making a mess).

ETA - tails are easy, they sell fake tails all over the place.

Then buy extensions. Yes, they make them for horses, but like human hair extensions they're not cheap.

MTG is expensive but cheaper than extensions, but there's no guarantee it'll grow the hair out any faster than just plain old time.

Ha I didn't know that :) I plan on buying hair extensions for myself though
