I use fingers, a comb and lots of cowboy magic!

I use MTG. I love the stuff. It worked wonders on my previous horse and I'm hoping it brings the tail of this new horse of mine back to life! His tail was one HUGE knot when I got him.

It does smell, I think it smells awful haha, but I wear gloves when I apply it, just my gloves I use for nursing! Then I can just throw them away. I don't notice a smell on my horse after applying (like the next day or anything) just gets funky on my hands and we don't have a sink to wash in my barn I board. Just FREEZING cold water!

Anyways, no smell like I said, that I notice on my horse, it does make the tail look a bit greasy but it does help keep it from getting tangled, it actually keeps my horses tails completly smooth and I love it. I use it twice a week, I also put it on scars and such to grow the hair back.

Only one person uses a tail bag/wrap to get a good tail?!? I'm surprised

Finally found the website.

This is why I don't bag, braid for any period of time, or use standard horse products. I don't follow everything this business suggests, but I do what's most practical for me and my time space. It was all too perfectly logical to not try.

I went about 8 or 9 months using only water on his body and tail, and it worked. He was super shiny, and his tail started to toughen up and break less.
I'm all for natural stuff, but I don't swear by it. I'd use something artificial, as I still use some man-made things, as well as fake tails. You can't change generational traits, but you can improve what you have. This plan did work for me. The only thing I've added is Coconut oil to the water thing now.

Here's the link to the tail care, as well as the full website for other grooming tips. Again, I don't do everything, because some of it just isn't practical, but a lot of it is very logical.
