    When I first moved Ice to his new barn, he had a lot of broken strands, but now they've all grown out, or are in the process of growing out. I think he just realized he could scratch his butt on the trees in the pasture (at his previous house they had electric fencing around the trees) and so he went a little crazy.

    I would suggest MTG or pure coconut oil

    I worm my horses regularly and keep their tails, sheaths & teats clean and they still rub their tails. I finally put up electric wire where they rub and that did help a little. Keeping something like cowboy magic detangler on the top of the tail will causes the tail hairs to slide through whatever they're scratching on instead of catching and breaking the hairs. I just think they love the feeling of it.

    MTG is awsome, I have had my horse for 10 years now and I have been using it on him for about 8 years, it works wonders. I also use a tail bag and wrap. I like the tail bags that have the 3 sleeves and then you braid them together. It works really good. The MTG makes their hair thicker and stronger, and then the tail bags and wraps, keeps there hair from getting dirty and keeps then from rubbing it on fences and stalls.
