If you have a horse with a really long tail, I usually try to wrap that out of the way as well. If I get it in my face just picking feet, then it has to be annoying when you are there a much longer time.

^I know of one farrier who CUTS the tails off horses! Yes, including show horses!

I just tie them in a loose knot if they're in the way.

I'm so grateful I got a barefoot trimmer to come out at all (they're rare in France), I'm prepared to do just about anything to make her happy! If she wants to see me dance on my head, I just might do it.
