You know over the years I have tried it all. I have done the tail bags the 3 tub braided tail wraps (do like those the best of all) you name it I have tried it. What I have found works just as well is the least expensive and the easiest?
DO NOTHING. Keep the tangles out and the hay and sticks out and then do nothing. Only brush when it is clean and dry but past that just leave it a lone.
This past summer and fall I bet I washed tails once if that used no MTG or very little. The tails grow just as fast as they did when I was washing conditioning and using MTG.
I cut off about 10 inch off the mares tails about a month ago to keep the tails out of the mud. I like to keep the between the hocks and the ankles anyway but they had gotten to the point they where dragging the ground so I cut them. Guess what? They are about down to the ankles again and probably in anouther month will need to be cut again.
