More uses than advertised
It stinks. No two ways about it. I've smelled worse though. It also works, and not just for manes, tails and minor scrapes. I bought a horse from a kill pen and she had this tag stuck to her with this horrible glue. She's thin-skinned, and the goo went right down to her skin. After applying MTG for 4 days, the tag came off, and less than a week later so did the rest of the goo, without harming her skin. I keep a bottle of this on hand all the time!

Great for certain skin problems
MTG plus still smells awful, but it definitely clears up certain skin problems without loss of hair. I put in on with a tack cleaning sponge which works well. You must continue to apply it after the problem is gone, as the directions indicate. I was told not to use it on a wet horse and I use a flysheet for protection from the sun as the directions indicate. A little bit goes a long, long way!

Use on gelding who continually rubs his tail due to extreme dryness. MTG provides relief for him.

This is the only product I've found that works on sweet itch!
My previous horse had a bad allergy to mites in the grass, causing severe itching & bumps on the chest, shoulders and neck every spring through late fall. I used to wash with medicated horse shampoos, which helped a bit for a short time, but always came back. Finally, my farrier told me about MTG. It smells funny, but you can get used to it and it is the only treatment I found that consistently reduced the itch and the bumps. My new horse has thinner hair, and less mane & tail. She also got the itches on the chest, neck & shoulders, though without the allergy rash. I've used MTG on the itch and it's completely gone. Also used on the mane & tail; much easier to comb out with less hair loss from pulling tangles. I have hope that given time, her mane tail & forelock will also grow out fuller.

Great Product
This is a great product. It does smell bad and we have tried this herbal scent which does not smell as bad as the original. It is great for increasing the thickness of manes and tails. We have tried it for rain rot. However, one suggestion - do not put on your horse's skin in full sun as it is extremely sensitive to sun.

Great stuff
This stuff is amazing. The best for rubbed tails, or getting tails to grow. Also great on rain rot. This isn't as stinky as the original, but still doesn't smell great. Also turns silver jewelry black, so take off your rings before applying! (though some toothpaste gets them back to silver!)

Mixed feelings
This product is only a bit smelly now (compared to the terrible smell of the original MTG). But, it is oily and makes my horses itch. The thing is, it does seem to help the hair regrow faster than without using it.

Great for abrasions & some of the allergy spots on my geldings legs. Heals up quickly and restores hair growth. I use it with gloves & a cosmetic square as the smell is not so nice & is a little greasy.

Can it be used on dogs?
Carolyn W on Jun 22, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes and on Humans . I have Yorkies I use it on and myself. It works great , I always have a couple of bottles , 1 at home and one at the horses.
Can you apply while animal is wet?
Greg C on Aug 15, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I have never really done that, but the only advise I can give you is be careful if you are applying to an area that is in direct sunlight, as it will cause the skin to burn!
I keep my horses mane covered to protect her long mane. She still managed to rub part of it. Can I continue covering it after using MTG?
Marilu R on May 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I would not cover it with the MTG on it for a few days.
