I recently purchased a fake tail for my horse. His natural tail is short, kinda bushy, wavy, and kinda frizzy. When I attached the fake tail for the last show, I conditioned the crap out of his tail, braided it, and let it dry, and the next morning it still returned to its natural bushy state, where the fake tail looked long and sleek underneath it. Yes, the judge laughed at my horse in halter. I ended up spraying his tail until it was greasy and squashing it down with vet wrap before each class. Once again, I had people walking around giggling because my horse had vet wrap butt. Please help!
Can I possibly straighten out the wavy and frizzies in his tail? Will that ruin his tail?
I'd prefer not to be laughed at again, but if I don't wear the fake tail he still looks ridiculous. Any help would be appreciated.
