Ugh my dad used to have issues with his horse's tail. We had a morgan gelding, and my dad used to cut of his tail probably about half way down the lower part of his back legs, and when he started coming out less, and I was taking over his horse's exercise and stuff, I took about 6 months or so, and it grew long enough that it was dragging a good inch or so on the ground. Well one day my dad went out with one of his co workers and their kids, and when I went out the next day or something, his tail was cut off at the hocks, and my dad said that it looked better that way :(, my dad is NOT a fan of long tails. About 2 months after that, the horse, Joe, colicked and had to be put down, and I wanted to keep his "tail", and I have hardly any tail to keep. Everyone I have known has always kept the "tails" of the horses they've had to put down, and I wanted to as well.

She's a very cute horse though, what breed is she? Haflinger, or Belgian?

Yeah, she is a Belgian but I am not sure that "cute" or "little" really fit as descriptions of her LOL ;p. Can anything weighing about 1900 lbs be considered cute? I always thought that was a word for something that was small. ROFLMAO!! Thank you everyone. She definitely seems happier now that she is able to swat the flies on her big old sides instead of just hitting herself on the butt with a big log. :/ Just because, here is a pic of her mane just after I brushed it out the other day. I didn't wash it and fortunately, it didn't have any big knots.

(poor girl has got such a big ugly head) LOL

And got a pic of her using her new tail. I think she likes it. I know it weighs much less. ;)

Looks like you have the virtue of patience I couldn't have cut off her lovely tail either.
Just one more reason for me to hate cockleburs

She has such a gorgeous tail, especially after all that work. The colors in it are really pretty. I would not cut it, lol, no way. :)
