P.S. Your horse looks exactly like my horse, Carly. All black with blue eyes and a slight blaze. Except, my horse's tail is thinner than your horse.

It was obvious to me that she was insinuating that I'm taking poor care of my horse.

Not sure why you would think I was unsinuating that you are taking poor care of your horse from my post. Care and chopping a tail off are 2 different things. I was insinuating that horses use there tails to swish flies away as Brianna understood it to be. No matter how much fly spray, masks, sheets, time of day or night or fans bugs are still an issue probably more so in hot climates like Florida.

You expect me to believe you were just trying to educate me on the purpose of a horse's tail?

If you were, you would have said something more neutral, like "Horses use their tails to swish flies." Not "I would rather have a thin tail to swish flies than no tail :("

It's quite obvious that you're insinuating that my horse is unhappy with what I did to her tail. That has everything to do with poor care.



I'm still failing understand why people who live in Iowa and Ohio are claiming to know more about the bugs at MY BARN than I do...

Yes, there are still SOME flies that manage to find a place to land on her. Her fly sheet and fly mask make it impossible for them to land anywhere but her legs. She can stomp her legs - she doesn't need to swish them with her tail. Are you really concerned about a few flies on my horse's legs, or are you just trying to pick a fight? Perhaps you should focus on all the horses starving to death in BYB's yards and stop wasting your time complaining about my horse - who is very obviously (to everyone but yourself) well cared for.

You seem like the one who is trying to pick a fight with anyone who doesn't agree with you.
In Ohio and Iowa we have less bugs than Florida because the cold winter kills them off but what do we know?

Your post should read " I did what I never thought I would do but do not respond unless you think I and my horse are the greatest ever"

I've been through this already. There's a way to disagree without being rude, and it's not that difficult. You shouldn't have to explicitly state in your thread title that you don't want rude responses.

I did what I thought I'd NEVER do...

I'm not "picking" a fight with anyone. I'm defending my actions against people who are criticizing them in a rude manner. They (and you) were not provoked, and therefore they (and you) were the one(s) starting the fight. Not me.

As I said before, I dislike pulled manes but that doesn't mean I go to the many threads that have been started about pulling manes and make rude comments about how the poor horses have no protection from flies, etc.

This begs the question - If you don't care about my B&A pictures, WHY did you reply to this thread? Why are you wasting my time and yours and littering my thread with nonsensical arguments?

hahahahahahahahahahahahaahahahahahaha guys she cut her horses TAIL not a vital body part off jesus!! Some people deffinitely have some extra time on thre hands! the op also stated that she is substituing loss of her tail with rugs and sprays etc.

Stop trying to pick fights over something so petty its like giving out to someone who cut off there long hair as it was thin and straggely at the end.

To give a horse your heart guarantees a love that will last forever undamageable

CM, I'd just drop it. It's only gonna make bad feelings. They're in fault for posting it in the first place, and you are in fault for giving them a reaction!

That's probably a good idea.

I use baby oil on my mare's mane and tail dock, and also the hair to make it easier to de-tangle. I find that you don't necessarily have to wash it out, like MTG, and when it soaks into the hair it seems to make it less brittle. My mare's mane is down past her shoulder and I just trim the ends when they get to straggly, keep it in braids and only re-braid it if the braid looks like it's trying to mat.

As for her tail, I had it all the way down to the ground and thick and gorgeous, and then one day I went out and found that her tail was all thin and ragged and I freaked. Looking more closely I found that someone had cut about a 6 inch wide chunk out of the underside of her tail, AT THE DOCK. it was less than an inch long. I was crushed and freaking out as to who the hell cut my horse's tail off for no good reason. Later, I come to find out that it was my sister-in-law with my mother's help and they took the hair and had a really neat bracelet made of my horse's hair, so that she's always with me. Sort of stopped me freaking out and the chunk that was cut out is past her hocks now, almost looks normal but when it started re-growing it was all bushy at the top and looked thin at the bottom lol.

The point is, it's just hair. It'll grow back. No need to freak :)
