    ^ Yeah, I have a fake one for my horse shows heehee!

    My only "secret" is I braid my horses tail about once every two weeks and use all the cowboy magic products on it. Braiding it keeps it nicer and less hairs get pulled out that way... I make lots of smallish braids...

    Eh, I just feel like fake tails are cheating. People put fake tails on Appys all the time, but Appys weren't meant to have too thick of tails in the first place. I don't get it. I would feel much more better knowing my horse's real tail got me a ribbon than a fake one...

    The tail doesnt get you a ribbon. I've shown with and without my tail... I've even had my tail fall out...

    If that's the case, then why is everyone so concerned about it? Lol. But, I've heard judgeing being more on beauty than talent in some cases, and further more, the judges only look at certain parts of the horse.

    Like, if a pretty horse makes more mistakes than an uglier one, the pretty one would probably win anyway.

    But I just wouldn't be proud of a fake tail. It's just not the same as a real tail. But I hate it when people do hair extensions and stuff like that too. I don't know, just my opinion =]

    well this may not help but, I usually get the shampoo, wash the tail, leave it in for about 2 minutes, and then rinse, then I would comb it through to get all the knots out, re-wash, rinse out, comb through, let it dry and I live in Australia and we get this product called Top Tails, it makes there tail silky, flowy, and looks gorgeous!!! If this doesn't help I am sorry, if it does I am happy!!! Oh and GOOD LUCK AT YOUR SHOW!!!

    If your horse doesn't have a nice flowing tail, then a fake one just helps "complete the look", I by no means *like* to have to use one! I work just as hard as everyone else to get a nice tail... and if we shouldn't use fake tails, then why grow a tail at all? You know...? It's a show horse look...

    My horse is 3 and he has a 3 year old tail... the fake tail gives him a grown up tail.

    ^ I hope he grows a tail, I used to say that was Bali's excuse but he still has very little tail :(
