Just a note, some horses can have a bad reaction to MTG. If you decide to use it, test a small area first.

Thanks everyone! I've used it on him before for tail growth, so I know the smell he's all oiled up like a greased hog now, so the gross bacony smell just makes it more hilarious.

My mare has it..She had/has it bad on her right side and had it starting to get bad on her left.

I started her on vit A orally once a week..and by the time I have her the second dose today her left has already grown new fur and the right is almost gone. She still has hair growth on the right, but the left is already gone and regrown.

For $35 for a 250cc bottle of vit A, I will never buy a $35 bottle of spray that'll be gone by the time she gets it again, lol. This bottle of vit A should last me a year with once a week for 2 months doses and then once a month doses once the rainrot is gone and her two bald patches grow in. It's amazing.

I was actually hesitant because I figured fungal has to be treated from the outside, but it's worked great in just a week. I think one of joe4d's posts actually convinced me to try it, lol.

It's all cleared up now guys! All the little gross scabs are gone, and the hairs growing back like a weed. I used an iodine based shampoo daily for a few days, then hit it with the MTG every evening.
