    His tail looks normal to me. Might be dirty and that's what's throwing you off. Try using just water and a stiff bristle body brush and working it through. You could trim a few inches off to help keep it clean. That was exactly what my girl's tail looked like and on a whim I rinsed it really well and now it's much less "clumpy" looking.

    Trust me, its clean. Its just the way the hair is shaped I think. O well. She will just have to look "unbrushed"

(her tail isn't THAT dirty, I promise...it's grey in the middle! Keeping a white/grey tail clean is darn near impossible anyway! LOL


    Maintenance we just brush it out in sections, starting from the bottom. Hasn't been a hot enough summer to bath them much though.

    Sadly there is nothing you can do about this one. It's all in the genes.

    SMROBS was right it has to do with the shape of the actual hair.

    Bundy's tail is exactly the same. It makes it really hard tokeep it looking nice throughout the day at a show... I brush it out, showsheen it, and then after one warm-up canter, it's back in it's ringlets. Oh well, just one of his quirks :]

    I think most horses tails do that.
    I use Show Sheen to untangle the ropes. I also brush them out with a tooth curry (plastic) It works much faster than trying to use a mane comb. Also, a round hair brush works well.
