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.

Great. I'm going with that. Totally took a picture of my horses butt and emailed it to myself, but I don't know how to put it on here. Lol.

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:
