Buy a fake tail and tie it in. That's what both of these horses probably have. You are not going to see many WP horses that don't have fake tails.

Fake.. but to get my QHs like this

This is last years picture but I feed sweet feed everyday. With biotin and flax, I never brush it unless it has burrs in it. Sometimes I would braid it but not that often.

Just feeding sweet feed to my horses feed when I get them their tails grow like crazy and twice as fast..

Well see this horses tail it kinda looks like that it doesn't look fake. Not saying the other two pics the horses don't have fake tails bc I thought they probably were I'm just talking about the straightness At the bottom of the tail

I french braid my mare's tail and always keep it in a tailbag. It grows full, thick and fast. Make sure when you end your braid, to go as far down as you can. It will cause breakage if you rubberband it too high

If you want the even-ness on the bottom...Just cut it straight across. It isnt rocket science, I even managed to figure it out .

But on a serious note, tail bag, biotin, and don't brush very often (picking works) :)

If you need it straight for a show or something, wash, condition and blow dry with a big paddle brush to straighten. You could also use a flat iron (for hair) on a low setting, but it will take a while. Both of these will dry the hair shaft out though, so don't do it often.
