    I like the concept, but I do enjoy braiding my horses tails...Lol! I've had good luck with it too, so why change now, right? Haha

    ^ of course, if it works for you!

    Personally - I will only leave a braid in over night. I really don't think it would be comfortable!

    My horse's tail drags 3 inches on the ground, so I bag it just to keep it off the ground in the winter. I typically put it up on Sundays, take it out on Saturdays. I condition it, finger comb it out, and then rebraid it and put it back up.

    Wild Spot - How does that stay on? Does it attach to a blanket? I'm probably just being dumb, but I'm tired

    Oh and whoever posted about tail chewers had a good point. I braided and bagged Flame's tail for a little bit this fall. The next day I came out and the bag was all crusty and chewed on... Soda has the weirdest oral fixation I've seen yet...

    Yup, attaches to a blanket.

    Well, it's out for me then... Oh well.

    That's the only downside - See here in Aus lots of horses have a light cotton rug even in summer - To keep the heat and the bugs away. Not so convenient when your horses aren't rugged!

    Yeah, that's the problem. He'll probably get a fly sheet this summer, but I don't bag tails in the summer anyways. During the winter he's not blanketed and that's when I bag to keep the ends of the tail out of the mud/water
