MTG is amazing! This product helps my horses to maintain strong tails and gives them growth despite the significant number of flys and gnats that pester them throughout the summer. Prior to using this, my horses tails were thinning and breaking throughout the summer months.

This stuff is the best for rain rot. Loosens the scabs so they come right off with less pain, soothing to the raw area and regrows hair quickly. I use it on hot spots on my dogs too.

My husband wanted to use this on a horse's mane.
MARIAN M on Aug 17, 2015
This is a great product to put on healing injuries to reduce or minimize scarring. It is also a great product for hair growth and a number of other uses. ALWAYS have this on hand.
Donna R on Aug 6, 2015
I have a shire that started to develop scratches. I tried a couple of other products and they didn't seem to be working. I started using MTG and immediately the itching was reduced and the sores started healing. I am using it on a daily basis now and my horse is much more comfortable. He also doesn't seem to mind the MTG being applied. A couple of the other products must have stung as he didn't want to stand still when they were applied.

this works to stop temporary itching
MARY CLAIRE M on Jun 15, 2015
So this is my miracle product. My thoroughbred had an annoyingly short tail that wasn't growing. After about half a bottle of this (which you don't have to apply it religiously) and a good year, his tail is down to the ground. I've probably only applied it 15-20 times too.
VICTORIA B on Mar 16, 2015
Great on mane and tail, as a detangler and for growth.
RAVEN P on Feb 4, 2015
To help with growth of short hairs at the top of tail. Seems to be working wonders.
SUNDA L on Jan 26, 2015
Helps with my horses bald patches. She likes to scratch and rubs off her hair. A week or 2 of MTG and hair is already growing back. Works wonders on thin tails too. I use this after a scratch or wound has healed for fast acting hair regrowth.
Janet F on Nov 8, 2014
Great product! I was out and needed another bottle.
CAROLE P on Oct 11, 2014

despite the smell,,its great stuff!
PAULA E on Jul 6, 2014
I chose M-t-g because it is a quick fix for any hair rubs as well as growing out longer manes and tails!
Jackie on Jun 20, 2014
Recommended by a high level dressage competitor, for increased mane and tail thickness and for issues with any fugal problem with her horses. Good enough for a experienced trainer who uses the best and most natural products she can, after good feed and supplements - I needed to try it as one of my horses has recently lost a lost of mane and tail hair and I don't know why.

Granddaughter this its cool

To try using as treatment for rain rot bacterial skin infection
TRINA S on May 9, 2014
Reviews indicate many uses and figured it's better to be prepared for things ahead of time.
Sheila M on May 4, 2014
My standardbred mare has always had a super-thin mane and tail, and for the upcoming show season, i'm hoping to grow it out longer and thicker. I found this product recommended on forums and decided to give it a shot, especially for a low price.

This product really works as advertised. It helps to promote tail hair growth in length and fullness.

Does this work for ringworm?
A shopper on May 3, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I have only used Shapley's M-T-G for grooming and tail growth and it works great. However, as ringworm is caused by a fungus I believe it requires special antibiotics to kill it. The fungal spores live for many months and all grooming equipment,tack and stable or wood sufaces need to be thoroughly disinfected. Please consult your veterinarian for prompt treatment.
doe it work on dogs. Is it harmful if they lick it?
A shopper on Jul 19, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The product label shows this to be safe and effective on dogs and livestock:

Why can't I spray it on ?
Abe A on Jan 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Because it won't go through a sprayer without gumming it up after a couple of uses. Also, if you notice, you have to shake the bottle to mix the particulates in the bottle. Not a problem except that is what clogs the sprayer. I tried to use it as a spray (no one I know likes the smell of the product) but it ends up ruining spray bottles and is less efficient when applied that way.
I have a grey horse with scars/bald spots on his sides from bites from other horses. He also has a very thin mane and tail. Is this product safe for greys and will it help thicken his mane and tail and regrow those bald spots??
Samantha on Sep 22, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I have a gray horse also and use this on his mane and tail only. It makes it very manageable.
Will M T G Help mites on dogs?
A shopper on Mar 22, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This product is not meant to be used on dogs, It is for equine horses, and ponies. It is used for relief from rain rot, scratches, girth itch, sweet itch, dry skin, tail and mane rubbing.
