Horses eating my horses tail?

When we first got my horse he had a great tail. Now its close to the tailbone. I tried tail bags but the horses just tear it off. I really miss his long tail... what do i do to make it grow/prevent from further nibbles?

There is this spray called "WrapLast," or something to that tone. I'll try to snag a link.

Spray the horse's tail every day before they are turned out. The chewer may take one bite, then realize it is GROSS! and will not try again.

We had the same issues with a baby chewing an older mule's tail. This detered him completely ;) It was origonially invented for spraying on bandages, to prevent horses from chewing and undoing those. But works great on tails.
