It sells really well here - the brand we carry have kits in the different colours for the whole horse or just the mane and tail.

MTG does not MAKE hair grow. It "encourages" hair growth. Think about it - if MTG made hair grow, we would not have bald men . . .

Ok - off my soap box now.

Some of tail bleaching comes from urine splash and manure residue. Wash, rinse and condition once a week to discourage chemical discoloration.

Oops, my mistake, just from what I had read about it that was the impression I got.

Now that's two new things I've learnt this morning Thankyou for that.
