Good Stuff, use gloves
I've been using this on an old TB mare that has "itchy tummy" for several years. It helps, but doesn't cure. Smells pretty bad, even the improved smell variety, but really helps the tichies on her belly tail and other parts. Need to use every other day for good results. Also helps heal "bedsores" on ;hocks and fetlocks.

MTG-"Must Have" for grooming
Love the new scent, it certainly is not as pungent as the regular but on the horse, it smells like the original version. If you want long tails and manes, this is the product that will give your horse both!

Helps thicken their tails
I use MTG to treat scratches and other skin conditions. Our horses' tails have improved in appearance since I started working MTG in at the top of their tail boned.

Best smelly stuff ever!
My horses tail touches the ground and I make sure to use this on it. I really like the Herbal M-T-G since it has a much better smell than the original.

Soothing for itch
Just started using on my horse, who has a bad case of summer itch. He did not want anything to do with it at first, but once I was able to put some on him, he then stood there as I treated his other problem areas. I can see that I will be ordering more of this product.

Can't go wrong with good old M-T-G
This product has surely stood the test of time. I have used it for the multi-purposes for which it is intended and believe results have always been good. I have even put some in a spritzer bottle and applied a few squirts under my mare's tail, which seems to have helped abate the "tail itchies." The smell is a bit strong but not enough to deter usage.

smelly help :))
it really helps for our sensitive mare - she itches from the bug bites and rubs her hair off although we keep them bug free as much as possible ... MTG helps quick and effectful - it smells weird but that's ok ...

Miracle mane and tail saver without the stink
I love this new version of MTG. The fragrance is mild and pleasant. The effectiveness is still amazing, maybe even better than the original. I drizzle on my geldings mane crest and tail dock at the first signs of them rubbing. It knocks the itchiness out immediately. The oily residue is the only down side but it is worth it!

Great stuff for itchy bellies and other parts
I have had this TB mare since she was 4 and now she is 26 (and still going strong). She has had this itch on her belly from her front legs to her hind legs ever since I had her. Nothing seemed to help much. But, if I use the MTG at least every other day, she is growing hair on her belly and itching less.

keeps the cows from chewing on my horses tail.
BECKY B on Jul 24, 2015
This product has been great. I've used it on rain rot, and scratches and it helped clear both issues up within a matter of days. Its a great product and will continue to order.
KAREN R on Jul 22, 2015
My mare is 3/4 Morgan, and had a fantastic tail as is a Morgan trait. But she was in a pasture with a bunch of other horses, and they pulled out her tail. I've been told that this is miracle worker for hair growth, so its worth a shot. She also has a sparse mane, so I'm going to see if this will help it grow longer and thicker like a Morgan's mane should be.

my mare gets sweet itch every summer and rubs her tailbone bare - with MTG we get a grip on this in notime
Gary W on Jun 26, 2015
This stuff is the most effective thing I have found for a mare that has an itchy belly to the point where she chews her hair off.

Is this the product that removes stains on greys?
A shopper on Apr 10, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I WISH!! I have an entire pasture full of grays that stay orange all winter here in Georgia. No, this product is excellent for dry skin, rain rot, rubbed tails, etc. It soothes irritated skin (like from bug bites) and helps hair regrow quickly. It contains ingredients to kill fungus, as well. I highly recommend it!
RUBY B on Sep 24, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I never tried it. It's a bit grease and has a bit of an oder. Works great on my horses applied every 5 to 7 days during the summer months.
What is the difference between MTG and MTG Plus? I see MTG Plus costs more than regular MTG.
Jan G on Jun 25, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Shapley's MTG is the best product for my horses tail-rubbing regrowth. She has an allergy to sand gnats and
rubs the base of her tail. I wanted to try the Shapley's MTG Plus in hopes that it would not smell as strong as the original. I'm sorry to say, that to me they both small the same. Still -it works so well- I'll keep using it
Will it cause sunburns if applied on a hot sunny summer day?
Samantha G on Sep 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it's oil based, so it does seem to get their coat even hotter when in the sun! I would use caution, try to apply in late afternoon or evening.
do you have m-t-g in a gallon size?
debdeb on Jul 26, 2017
BEST ANSWER: We have this available in 8 oz or 16 oz sizes.
need medication for dogs sever ring worm what works?
leigh m on Jul 4, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This may be something to try, and the label does show it's safe for dogs, but we do have to recommend that you check with your dog's veterinarian.
Can anyone tell me, on the product summary it says "no need to wash off between applications", yet when reading the bottle instructions yesterday it said to apply, but to rinse off the next day. So which is it? Do I have to rinse it off or not?
Kathrine D on Jun 28, 2015
BEST ANSWER: As per the instructions on the bottle, the only time this product needs to be rinsed off is for stain removal. Any other treatment, product does not need to be washed off.
