Well if you wash it to much it will get dries out(not basing on what you know who says) but I always noticed that it did take the oils out some. Don't worry bout it bud you and picky look great and will do great :) can't wait!

^ Agreed, :)
But usually what I do with my horses tail, is I layer it kind of, and trim it, Like I take the tail and go close to the butt and cut in a slant, kind of like doing angled bangs for people ! It looks really nice when they move imo :)
( makes it harder when you want to braid etc though)

But I would get some spray in detangler and conditioner, with some stuff that you can spray which makes the horse shinyer :)
But usually the detangler and conditioner leave in spray look great.

As said above you don't want to wash the tail to often

There is this product on the market called "Cowboy's Magic Detangler." It works miracles, but they make many different products, so make sure the one you buy is the detangler. Thoroughly bathe them and then comb a dime size amount of that through both their tail and mane, let it dry and it's STUNNING. You can also dilute it in water and it is BETTER then the shampoo they make. DO NOT buy the shampoo, it's expensive and doesn't work well. The detangler is pricey but AMAZING.

I agree- Cowboy Magic Detangler is amazing! It (obviously) detangles the mane and tail, and makes it shiny and silky and flowing. Just make sure that you put it through the WHOLE tail, including the tail bone, because otherwise it is VERY easy to see where you did and did not put it- the part you put it in is shiny and the part you didn't is completely dull and not as dark.

MTG would probably help a lot, I used to grow out my horse's fly-aways, and a friend used it to make her horse's tail thicker (it looks amazing). But I'll warn you, it smells DISGUSTING, I recommend using rubber gloves to apply it

I LOVE Cowboy Magic Detangler.. great stuff!!

Baby oil will just attract dirt, so that's probably not a good thing to put on the tail I use MTG. Just rub a little into the tail dock every few days. It's smelly, greasy stuff but it works great. His tail is nice and thick and touches the ground. My big trick is, I never touch it unless we are grooming for a show. No sense pulling out hairs if you're just going out trail riding or schooling in the ring.

Buy VO5 leave in spray conditioner for humans. It makes the tail feel amazing and rejuvenates it. That is what I use before and the day of show and its also a detangler.
