Remember, white vetwrap for light tails, and don't do pregnant mares with red, you will give yourself many heart attacks, ask me how I know.
Well that answers why mine kept falling off- I never looped it up through the top of the braid (pretty obvious now that I think about it...)

I only have blue vetrap at the moment. I think I'll risk the color rubbing off since show season is still months off and give it another try!

Great video, thanks for posting! In the past I have attempted to use tail bags, but they always fell out.

I use a braid in tsil wrap. Each section of hair goes in a section of the tail wrap, then it is braided and tiied. It looks great, I re do it every month with leave in conditioner

For winter, I did not want to cut my 2 mare's tails. (They drag the ground collecting mud and getting frozen ice chucks on the bottom that whack their legs)

So...I knotted their tails twice and put hair tie in them. It brought their tail up about a foot, its loose and won't cause any problems. And I didn't have to trim their tails! Yay!

Just don't touch the tail. Don't bag it, don't brush it, don't touch it. It will grow longer and thicker on its own.

That depends on all sorts of things, I prefer to be proactive!

Sort of... my guy's tail grows longer by leaving it be, but then he steps on it and pulls chunks out if I don't do something to protect it.
