If you would have let her tail soak in something like the Cowboy Magic Detangler for a while, probably doing it a day or two you could have picked her tail apart. I've done it a few times..You could try different mane/tail/coat supplements for her tail. When it starts to grow out you can keep something on it and bag it while it grows out..With winter coming she won't need it for flies so you may just as well even it out and cut it off..
We soaked in the cowboy magic and the mane and tail for about a week or more. I mean, it was HUGE and solid. It had rocks and pebbles in it. It was sort of ridiculous. As you can see, a few pieces came loose but when it came to the sticks and rocks and just solid mass or hair... We had to cut it. She couldn't keep the flies and bugs off her because she couldn't move it! Haha

lol I've never had rocks in it! That's a whole new level! I can understand why you would have to cut that mess out.. I'd just even it out, start her on something, and bag it when it gets a little longer. Waiting is about all you can do.

I don't want to cut it all off, I can't take away her fly swatter! Hehe:)

I'm not sure what ill do with it. It just aggravates me. I was hoping there was a good mane and tail supplement out there. Like Biotin for horses.

There are a good bit of mane and tail growth supplements on the market, you'd just have to play around with them and see what works.

I know what you mean about it being annoying, ones of my mares scratched her butt on a gate this summer and one side of her butt is still missing a patch of hair.. Soo annoying.. I couldn't get her to stop scratching on the gate though.

Yeah.. "Look mom! Aren't you proud?"

She can not be a QH with a an APHA dam. Mare is registered APHA not AQHA no way this can be a QH. All the APHA horses in her go clear back to 1963 and they have too many white markings on them to be AQHA. Oh her papers are confusing... Bandits Martin is not an AQHA horse it is registered APHA so both Bon Bon Bob's parents are registered APHA. This horse if it can be registered is a solid APHA horse

She is a quarter horse and I am pretty sure I know what her mom is because she was my first horse for 15 years. I don't care what she is registered as a paint or QH or a Welsh pony, I'm not asking you that! I specifically asked about her conformation. So lets not waste your time doing in depth research on my horses when I don't even care enough to do that.

I'm pretty sure she's got the message by 10th time you've posted this.

She can't be registered with AQHA but she IS a QH/paint cross..Making her half QH.. By AQHA's strict registry rules she isn't able to register with them but it doesn't discount that the mare isn't half QH..She's not a full paint, she'll just be able to register with APHA because they accept QH/paint crosses. She'll just register as a solid paint.
