This week I'll be doing my horse's tail for the summer and I'll get pictures. I'm in ohio where there are lots of bugs and the humidity breeds them like crazy. I add in bailing twine, but I make it more natural by doing different lengths and unwinding some of it to act more like a natural tail. We had no problems when I did it last summer and that was a really bad summer for bugs.
My horse's tail is always up unless I'm washing and rebraiding or walking to the show ring. His tail drags 3-4" when it's down (he's not even 3 and I've has him for just over a year) and I'm not about to lose that length. Long, healthy tails are valued and expected in his breed, though. Other breeds don't have to worry as much.
