Grulla tail question

My Grulla gelding has short hairs on the top of his tail that looks like a tail rubbing issue, except I've never noticed him to be a tail rubber, and he gets wormed regularly. Is it possibly a Grulla trait to have these 'guard hairs'?

Yeah I think it's just a trait. I've seen lots of horses with that. Unless he has chunks of hair missing in places

No it's evenly spread. I've put mtg on it and everything. I don't mind it if it's just a trait, but I didn't want to be thinking it was a trait if it wasn't.

The top of Cinny's tail has shorter hairs too.. about 1-2 inches and they occasionally fuzz up. I've had a couple of quarter horses that have this at the top and I've always thought it was just normal.

Yeah, Beau my AQHA gelding has those also. Some horses just do that I think.

You can't see it too great in this picture but I think this might be what you're referring to:
