I am heartbroken
For the last 2 and a half years I have been slaving over my mares tail trying to get it to grow long. It's always just been sitting past the hocks, but my efforts finally paid off and it reached ground length, then it surpassed it untill I had to cut if for our first upcoming show of the season next weekend. When it was all levelled out it really looked like it could have been a fake tail!! I was getting so excited for the show! Until this afternoon, I came home from work to find my mare beautiful tail had been sheared off just below the point where the bone and skin ends. I don't have the slightest idea what to do. The poor girl is wearing a fly sheet and we are applying fly spray every10-12 hours but the Mosquitos are just ridiculous!! We tried making her a vetwrap and twine tail to swat the bugs but she just tucks her tail between her legs when she's wearing it. If anyone has any suggestions on what to do with it that would be amazing!! Also if anyone has any suggestions about what to do about the show (it's western pleasure, equitation, and trail) I would sure appreciate it! I am just so devastated that someone would do something like that after all my hard work! I don't even know if I want to show her this summer anymore after this...
