Leaving tail wrap on during turnout?

Wasn't too sure if this was the right spot or not so, someone feel free to move it if necessary...

Anyways, I was planning on doing a number on my boy's tail one of these days. I want to pull it and wash it and then braid it and wrap it because he has such tangled and broken tail hair and I want it to be clean for once. Urghh. Haha. So I was wondering, is it safe to leave a tail wrap on for turnout as long as it is applied properly? Or should I just braid it and put it up and leave it at that?

A tail bag is fine. A tail wrap should only be used during foaling, breeding or trailering.

I've been braiding Lacey's tail all winter, no bag or anything, and it is so much fuller and longer than it's ever been right now. Before I braided it the first time I "banged" it (more like I trimmed off an inch or two since it was too short to legitly bang) so that the end was easier to have the end look nicer...
I just take it out about once a week and condition it and then I wash it about once a month.
I tried braiding it and putting a tail bag on it but that failed miserably, she kept somehow getting her tail out of the bag. Haha

I use the 3 tub tail wraps on all my horses then put in a tail bag. I leave them like that all year taking them down and redoing them about once a week. Washing as needed.

My horses have tail bags in all the time. I take them out once a week and apply MTG and then rebraid and bag.

Ya I love them also. I have about 20 (I have 5 horses) of them and change them out about every week or when they need it and when I get low I wash them with the sleazi which I have several. Makes for a nice load.

The trails stay clean even with all this mud and mess we have now. Worst part is when it gets like this and they get wet and then freeze makes it hard to get them out. That is why I put them up in a tail bag. Keeps them up higher and helps keep the ends from getting wet.
