Step-by-Step Directions for applying MTG
It would be greatly appreciated!
Put some in your hand and then put it on.
I actually just put a spray bottle cap on it and spray it on.
That's it? haha
Sorry, but some people were talking about braiding the tails after they apply it and then wraping them in vet wrap....
Well you never said where you want to apply it. But to apply MTG itself all you have to do it put it on.
My two mares have short tails (so....on their tails). But, I'm kind of worried because I have a grey mare and she ALWAYS wants to be a brown horse (she rolls in the mud ALL the time, haha). But, I'll try just applying it and see if there are any results.
Thanks for the advice! :D
Guess it depends on where you are applying it. For the tail I do little parts in the hair and dribble the mtg on and rub. Keep shaking the bottle it settles really fast. I start at the top doing little parts rubbing it into the tail bone all the way down to the tip of the bone.
Then I just brush it really good.
For the mane I dribble it along the crest and rub it in really good. Again finish with a good brushing.
I don't do any wrapping.
For a rain rot or skin problem I just put a little on the spot.
Thanks for the steps, everyone. I'm hoping to purchase MTG soon...
I have an appy, so i know what you're talking about with short tails. I would shake up the bottle, and apply it only to the tail bone. I'd rub it in (i do wear gloves), then i lightly brush it, & put it into a light braid. After i finish braiding it, i loop the tail through where i started the braid a couple times. Then i vet wrap her tail (I don't vet wrap her tail bone) I use a whole roll, but that's because i don't have any scissors handy.
I do that when the vet wrap looks really ratty.
Vega's tail have grown a lot since I've been doing it. AKPaintlover, was the one who told me how to do it, and i love it!
Good luck! I've been putting MTG on my horse cut mane for 2nd week, but so far no results. :) May be just not long enough yet.
My horse's pasture mate tore out chunks of his tail, so I've been using MTG for about a month. Here's some tips I've learned:
Don't apply it every day! I did this at first (oops!) until others on this forum told me to only apply it weekly. After I starting applying weekly, I noticed new hair growth in about 1 week.
Dirt + MTG = Goo. Yeah, after a while, the MTG and dirt (my mostly white Paint rolls a lot too!) will kind of build-up in the hair. I've just been brushing it out, but there's still some residue. We had one hot, sunny day, so I gave him a full rear-end wash and then re-started the MTG treatment.
Since it sounds like you're going for length, I would also recommend to braid/tail bag it or do AKPaintLover/Appylover's trick with the Vetwrap!
Also, I find that I wash my hands really well, immediately after applying the MTG, the smell comes off my hands well enough to not smell like Bacon on a BBQ all day!
