LOL, your gelding looks like a trojan horse. I would totally keep him that way! Adorable. I couldn't tell a lot of difference in your mare's tail, but it's YOUR mare. If you want to try to thicken her tail, power to ya! :) I've given up on all mine.

Look, CloudsMystique did what she wanted with her horses tails and she didn't exactly ask for opinions. People cut their horse's tails all the time. Maybe it will work and maybe it won't, but if it doesn't work she will learn from her mistakes. I honestly don't see any problem with it. This is how people find out if things actually work instead of just sitting there saying yes it will or no it won't without even trying.

I personally like the longer tails, but she's still gorgeous =)

I just chopped off a bunch of Soda's tail too, not as short as yours but still significantly shorter than usual. He kept stepping on it and pulling it out and it grows so fast, so I just decided to cut it up to mid-cannon level.

I think she looks very cute, she really is a beautiful horse. Good luck with your expirement!

Thanks! See guys - this is exactly how you give constructive criticism. It's not that hard. Disliking something doesn't give you the right to be rude.

I wish my TB had a thick tail like Mystique's, her tail is gorgeous no matter. Good luck getting it longer and thicker. Are you going to use anything to help get it the way you want? I wanna see B&A to.

Haha. I can't believe your being bashed for cutting your horses tail. O_O

Best of luck getting to it to grow back nicely. I've been waiting about three years for Ricci's black tail hair to grow back [she ripped it off the dock=|], and it's STILL shorter than Mystique's now, lol.

It will be nice to see B&A pictures. Maybe it'll give me motivation to actually keep on Ricci's tail with MTG, lol.

Either way, Mystique is beautiful. She's one of those horses that you couldn't make ugly no matter what you do. =] And I personally think your other horse looks fantastic with the short tail. =P

Gorgeous horse!
Have you ever used a three tube tail bag? If you don't have one, I recommend getting one in conjunction with the MTG :)

WELL SAID!

I personally like an average/long tail. Her tail isn't bad at all. If she cut it that short and it was whimpy and thin then that would be a dumb idea IMO. She is wanting to experiement and see what happens so stop bashing her about her horse's tail. If she cut your horse's tail then you can yell at her or whatever but Mystique is her horse,her property.

People are funny. I did this with my OWN hair after thinning and breakage. I've taken much better care of it over the past year (including braiding it every night before bed) and it's so, thick, shiny, and healthy now. Sometimes it's necessary to cut off the damaged hair in order to grow it back right. It works :)
