Another thread on MTG
 
Okay, I know their has been allot of threads on MTG, but on none of them can I find how everyone personally uses it. I purchased some MTG, and would like to know how to apply it? Rusty has a thick mane, but its kind of short. And his tail is boring. Its a little thin at the end and also kind of short. BORING! So, how do you apply your MTG?

Be aware it smells like bacon, or burning fire wood. So wear gloves if you don't like the smell.

That being said, when I appy it I apply to the roots of the mane and then work it through the rest of the mane and I basically do the same for the tail.

I apply it to the roots. LIGHTLY otherwise during the winter when I cannot bathe I'll have grease ball horses. Then work it threw, primarily using it as a detangler. I apply it, finger comb threw and leave the horses manes and tails alone for the next week or two. No one has a super long mane or tail but they're all thick and tangle free. I have not noticed it causing the hair to grow faster even when applied more often. I think it may condition/strengthen and help but the only thing I've noticed is when someone gets a bite mark the body hair will return super fast with the MTG.

i apply it on the base of the tail all along the sides and just rub it in and run my figuers throw the tail. i use it 1 every 2 weeks and dont wash it out. do the same with the mane. i also use it on cut to help hair growth not when its an open wound tho

I only do it once a week, if that because it's super greasy.

I used to use and in the spring I will be picking up some more. I generally will give a bath and apply it while they are still damp. I massage it into the base of the mane and all along the dock paying special attention to any area that is especially dry or has any scruff or flakes. Then I brush out the mane and tail and wait till they are dry from their bath. When they have healthy skin and coat, I do this about every 2 to 3 weeks. If they have any kind of skin itchies I will do it every few days to help speed up the healing.

I apply it to the mane and tail like conditioner and leave it on overnight. The next day, I wash off the excess with warm water. My horse remains a grease ball for several days despite. :lol: Also, she smells like bacon. Yummy pony.


It makes her hair oh so very soft. It feels like human hair!
