"No doubt plenty of oil!"
I cant speak yet according to helping regrowth of hair, but I can attest it is relieving some of the dry scaly itching my horse experiences. I'm hoping the oils help seal in some moisture and promotes mane regrowth. My horse had rubbed all but 1/2" of his mane off.
MTG is great for detangling tail hair, regrowing hair in small surface scrapes and speeding healing. My horse is notorious for getting small scrapes from the lead mare, so I use this for those often with great success.
"Great For Rain-Rot"
I use M-T-G for rain-rot and it works quickly. Although it does smell bad and it nasty if it gets on your hands (I use gloves) it does the job.
"Horses & Dogs"
We have a rescue farm here in the south and have used this product on both horses and dogs. Recently I used on the udders of my mares, the flies had bitten and caused sores around the udders and on their bellies. Within one day the sores turned around and started healing. I now use on all my horses when sending out to the pastures, it keeps the flies off. This product works just as good on dogs.
"Too much rain"
This summer in Georgia we had days and days of RAIN. The lakes were filled and had 16 inches more rain than normal. Normally my horse was not outside 24/7, either. My horse got rain rot on her hind quarters this summer with all the rain we had.She has NEVER had this before.I brought her from The Netherlands,and US weather conditions are different from what she is used to. I used the M-T-G on her and it cleared up(I scrubbed with iodine first leaving bald patches)This stuff really does clear the rain rot, AND GROW HAIR BACK.. in a very short time(I think 2 applications..) I need to buy more.When she got the rain rot, I had still about half bottle. I LOVE this stuff.and would tell folks to buy this product.I told my daughter and she already knew of this product. ITS something to keep at the barn, on hand......I put it on my dog once and it grew back hair on her bald spot. GREAT STUFF TO BUY!!!!!!!!!!
This is great stuff! It works on skin irritations caused by fungus and helps hair to grow back a little faster. I also use it for mane and tail growth and it works great. It is greasy and smells funny, but you just have to wash your hands to remove it. Overall, this is a great product and I have recommended it to many friends.
""Great Addition to any Horse's ""Product Supply""!""
Great for any tail thickening or lengthening program. As long as you don't overdo it, it will last forever! I have found that if you overuse it, it does make their manes and tails greasy. Hey, that's my fault for not reading the directions!
This product is great! I use it on a mare that is the itchiest horse i know! She rubs out her tail and fur and it looks awful! We tried MTG and it helped so much! Her tail is looking bigger and fuller, and her coat looks healthier and fuller in spots where she rubs. Its great for if you live in the south where horses are often attacked by bugs and are subjected to lots of marshy and rainy areas. I love this product, but beware. It smells awful and it makes your skin really slippery/greasy.
"Works great use carefully"
This product works faster then anything else I have ever used to clear up rain rot and skin conditions caused by bacteria or fungus. But I would use it more carefully then noted on the instructions as I have notice on two of my horses that the skin on their muzzles peeled after rubbing their legs where it was applied and one horse acted like it burned their skin slightly if I rubbed it in heavily on their skin and used it everyday. I have found a light application once a week after the horse is clean and dry keeps their skin free of problems and causes no irritation. It is a great product for quick results though and I would still recommend its use as it is the most effective of many of the products I have tried. Just be careful as the other reviewer noted it is strong.
"My horse suffers from summer bug allergies. This product really helps where he rubs off hair. Grows it back fast, heals rain rot and other skin conditions. I tried the ""generic"". It didnt work! MTG is a godsend for my horses problems. He does have sensitive skin but I have not had a problem. It will cause sunburn if used on white areas"
This is GREAT! It makes hair grow faster, fixes dry skin and rain rot! I love it...only flaw is that is smells like rotten bacon. And it lasts for a while...
I don't why but my horse had a alergy to this. Vet check him and said not to use. His hair on his hips all came out down to the skin everwhere the product touched him. I emailed company and it took 2 times for them to respond. They said no other complants.
This stuff works great. Only problem is it's greasy so you need a sponge and maybe some gloves when you use it but it works great for dry skin and rain rot. It even seems to make the hair grow back alot quicker.
"Works if you can get past the smell!"
"Great product as long as you can get past the ""old bacon grease"" smell! It will help your horses hair grow, as well as help with fungal problems. I usually wear gloves when applying though so it won't get on me."
I bought this product sometime ago and have only used it once. I bought it mainely for the fact that it says it helps the mane and tail to grow. I have no idea if thats true because after using it once that was it for me. The smell was terrible and it left my horses mane so greasy it was just disgusting. Can't say I'd recommend this.
