How would you even manage these manes and tails?

I was googling the world records for manes and tails. Holy cow is all I have to say.

How would you even manage these manes and tails?(These are NOT my horses btw):

Wow. I love a long mane and tail (see that thread) but that's a little ricdiculous. I can't imagine that first horse not getting neck damage from stepping on that. Unless they wrap it up but... Oui.

Actually the third one is all natural, They all are, she's the world record holder for the longest horse tail. The first 2 were taken in the 1900's.

Honestly, there comes a point where the "wow" factor just becomes the "why" factor for me. That being said, they are likely managed by being kept up (braided, bagged, etc) and only taken out for display purposes.

To tell you the truth. I actually did that. I woke up one morning and said. "Either Delilah or Charm are going to have the worlds longest mane or tail." Then I actually found out what the world record was. Nope. They aren't getting that long. I mean I LOVE the long manes and tails but if I ever tried to attempt that. I'd take out stock in Shampoo, Detangler and Conditioner First(now there's an idea.... LOL).
