I was thinking cut it, but from that picture it really doesn't look so bad. I've definitely seen worse, and have seen plenty of uneaten tails that look like that.

I would just leave it. It takes a long time to grow, and this way it will look fixed much faster.

I would also leave it - it's really not that bad.

One of my horses came to me with his mane chewed off as far up as the Seller's donkey could chew it. It took a couple years to reach its full growth but it finally grew down below his shoulder blade - much prettier than I expected.

Manes and tails usually do a lot of growing in the winter, when they're not swatting at bugs; add some flax to the feed pan and see if that doesn't speed things up:)

Some of our calves chewed off my sisters tbs tail and ever since it has been a short switch tail.
It hasn't grown back properly and that was two years ago.
