    Default Best Product for Growing Hair Back?

    My incredibly cute and sweet buckskin gelding managed to roll in a fire ant bed a few weeks ago, and had a BAD reaction to the bites. He had huge welts that eventually broke open to big open sores. Well, all of that has healed (topical treatments and oral antibiotics later), but he now has huge bald spots where the welts were. He just looks awful. What product have you used that really encourages the hair to grow back???

    MTG is supposed to be good for that, but I just use Corona...works wonders on my kids that LOVE to scratch themselves up before a show! My mare just changed feilds recently and got into a fight with the gelding, she had some lovely bite marks on her tush, they didnt break the skin, just took all the hair off. After a couple of days of Corona she almost looks normal now

    Definitely don't confuse the 2 different kinds of corona. No limes involved here!

    MTG, makes tails grow

    Worked really wel for me, my mare has a scratch on her head (from being an idiot) that healed, dabbed some MTG there was hair growth in 3 weeks.
    Worked really well where a pasture mate ate off her mane too, took three months (her mane was quite long) but it all grew back.

    Preparation H works great. No joke, it really works.

    Of everything I've ever tried (MTG, mega-tek, corona, bag-balm, healthy hair care, human hair conditioner products, etc.) nothing comes close to nu-stock.

    Don't use "Hair Grow Back" unless you are partial to flaming orange hair. It grows back, but wow what a color.

    It comes in a yellow tube or container....not very expensive, I end up using it on almost anything

    I am trying to grow a tail out now, so this is helpful! I'm using MTG, and will update as to how it works. I've had good luck on this with rainrot, but I HATE the way it smells (kind of like icky bbq sauce)

    I second the Preparation H (or generic version)

    My understanding was that MTG wasn't great if the horse is going to be out in the sun a lot - interaction?

    I've been very happy with Dermafas www.dermafas.com it has Vitamin E and a bunch of other great stuff in it. We believe it helped our horse regrow what hair was going to grow post barn fire burns. You want to promote healthy skin and hair follicles, without clogging pores

    Prep H has urea in it which promotes hair regrowth and is also a good idea.

    MTG! Dora got caught up in a fence and had some nasty lacerations. After all was healed, MTG helped the hair grow back and now you can barely tell.

    Corona and preparation H work as well, but I really think MTG is the best.
    In loving memory of my precious Gwendolyn; you will always be with me, in my heart. I love you.

    Default MTG!

    Mane, Tail, Groom. Smells like bacon grease. Costs about $14 bucks. Works a miracle. I tried everything....and my buck stops here!
