Wash it/condition, let it dry, apply detangler and leave in conditioner, then braid it. You can put the tail in a tailbag or vet wrap. This is what I do to my Arab show horse and his tail drags like a foot on the ground and it's THICK.
Not sure where to put this but what can I do to increase the length of my colts mane n tail? Any special shampoos that helps? Thanks!
I'm not certain there is much you can do about that. I think it depends on their pedigree. I have a yearling that is going to have a very long mane, not certain about the tail yet. Both sire and **** have long ones. Then I have others that are thick and wavy and so on. Everyone is different. My little spotted mare has a beautiful mane and foreloc is short??? Don't figure. Hope you can find something that works.
I use MTG and coat/hair moisturizer, and I brush out my gelding's tail every day. Brushing stimulates the follicles, and promotes new growth. To protect what's already grown, braid it and put it in a tail bag!
