    I just looked at the pictures of what you thought was a thin tail. That tail was absolutely gorgeous.
    All I am going to say is PUT THE SCISSORS DOWN AND BACK AWAY.

    And that's how they grow naturally. What does that have to do with my horse?

    How can you say that one thing is natural for all horses?

    And that's your opinion...

    I dislike thin tails, and I would prefer a short thick one to a long thin one.

    I don't think her tail was thin compared to most other horses, but you can't deny that it was thin compared to what it used to be. That's the tail I want back.

    It definitally looks different, but she is pretty enough that she pulls it off!
    And I kinda like your gelding with the mohawk and the short tail!
    I don't think I could do it to my horses, but your horses look like babies, and makes them look cute! Hehe

    I honestly couldnt tell a difference between the old and new till she cut the tail off. Except that sometimes it was a little wavier then other times. I let mine grown and never do anythign to them. Always nice and thick and a bit whispy at the end. Natural breakage. I only trim the ends of mine off to mid-cannon beggining of winter, to keep mud balls down. By the end of spring its back down to their ankles.

    Seriously? Look a little closer... there's a huge difference in thickness.

    Not sure why you even posted this thread and why you would expect everyone to say "oh how beautiful, you did such a good thing"
    I doubt it will grow thick all the way down like you are wanting it to.

    Yes my opinion doesn't agree with yours and I wouldn't have done it. You could have cut it off and kept it thick without going so short.

    The friesians tail is not natural. It is kept braided up and it is not running around a pasture with it's tail down.

    I didn't expect anything, and I gave you no reason to assume that. I told you exactly why I posted this thread, and that is to give updates on the progress with MTG. There are several threads in this forum asking if MTG works and if anybody has B&A pictures. Now they will.

    I cut it where I did because that's as thick as I want it to be. If I cut it longer it wouldn't have been as thick.

    If I stop messing with it, it will grow back the way it grew when her tail first grew at all... when she was a baby. Her tail actually has the ability to grow that way. I don't expect my gelding's tail to grow back thick... because he didn't have a thick tail to begin with. She did.

    You've completely missed my point. You can take a Friesian and let it run around a pasture with its tail down, and you can take an Appy and keep it in a stall with its tail braided. There is no way that Appy's tail will be longer or thicker than that Friesians. It's called genetics.

    I swear, Mystique is so gorgeous. I think she looks precious with her little tail.
