In the field across from us there is this arab mare and her owner fell out with this woman. That night the woman came over and cut the tail off the arab!!

I know what I would have done to her if she cut off my horses tail. It takes ages to grow back when they aren't youngsters.

Oh that's just nasty and spiteful....but I'm not doing it to spite anyone! I need fidget to look her best as I plan to put her on the market in the spring....yes I know the tail will be back then but I need her experienced and out and about now and it does help to sell if the horse comes with accolades. PLUS I wouldn't be happy to sell her onto another showie knowing that she hadn't had experience with going out to shows and learn't to keep cool! Picture this...14yr old schooling marvellous at home, takes pony out and pony is unmanageable because they are overexcited coz they havn't been anywhere. Sorry Rachiesmifx not havin a go at you...I guess I just like perfection

Get on eBay and check for false tails. I have seen them for much cheaper than you mentioned. Then, everybody can have a tail.

I think you shouldn't because it's just a look. Maybe if you do a show or something just put one over the top of it. Wouldn't you cut the bone or something if you did do it?
