Both my horses look like that. Horse tails are so pretty, but they are a pain. I would rather just cut it all off, but then my horses would be attacked by flies, so I let them "go" all Spring and Summer. And then I wrap them in the late Fall, all the way until the flies show up in Spring. It's time consuming and annoying, but it comes in handy for the horses in Summer :p

Good people get cheated, just as good horses get ridden

I had an arabian mare whit that kind of tail, but I didn't want to cutt her long beautiful tail. So I simpley washed it until it was really clean and after that I use show shine or similar that make it slip and then I braid it, and only release it when I were going some where or when I had to braid it again. =)

As for the tail, I love Infusium 23!!

As for the feet, I think people need to stop attacking the OP in this thread. We don't know her unique situation at all. My mare is barefoot and has been her entire life without issue, although I do get her feet trimmed every 6-8 weeks by the farrier. BUT that doesn't mean that's how EVERYONE needs to handle their horse's care, so I'm not going to pass judgement on you as a person or a horse owner
