How do you keep the top of the tail flat?

My mares tail hairs at the top go everywhere. I've ears of pulling the tail but I was wondering if maybe wrapping it would help?

Using a "no-tangle" or hair gel type product then wrapping (not too tight!) can help give a smoother look until they grow out.

What color is your horse? I know some coat colors like Duns just naturally have a really fuzzy tail up top and there isn't much you can do about it lol trust me I tried! But if not it could be new hair growth! My sorrel has new hair sprouting in his tail so I use Cowboy Magic detangler to slick it down a little!

I just bag my horses tail.
Do not wrap it unless for a short period of time such as a veterinary procedure. You can do significant damage to the dock if wrapping the top of a tail for more than a few hours.

Personally, I have never been bothered by a little fluffyness, but I could see if I was going to a show and wanted him to look extra tidy, I would wrap it for a short while to give him a neater appearance. Other than that, if his tail is a little fluffy it shouldnt be a problem, but If it really bothers you you could use some kind of hairspray or gel? I wouldn't wrap the top of the tail unless its really needed though.

I agree with Gallop On ^^. If you are worried about it being fluffy for a show I would try some gel for a quick fix. Otherwise maybe just using a detangler/leave in contitioner regularly could help the tail stay slick.
