My first attemp at bagging a tail

Did I do it right I would hate to leave it in for a mo if its wrong so first I washed his tail and condishioned then let it dry then I put cowboy magic in it and brushed it out then braided it folded it up put vet wrap on I didnt do those bailing twine fly swatter because his tail feathers are pretty long so did I do it right I just don't want to unwrap it in a mo and not have a tail left then I did it to two ther horses judging by the pictures how do you think it looks does it sound like I did it right?

Hmm I've never seen it done that way before. How I did mine was braid down, then bring the braid up through the beginning of the braid and loop it through right before the end of the tail bone, then wrapped in vet wrap. Don't need the ends here, flies are almost gone. Pretty tail though!

One thing I'd be careful about is tying things around the bone of the tail. (It looks like you took that off but I just wanted to mention it in case) It can cut off circulation and that is bad news! Otherwise I don't have much advice...I don't bag my tails. Lol :)

so all that's hanging out the bottom of yours is the end of the braid ??? I was trying to do one I saw online ( I think on this forum) do you think it will work

No I don't have anything hanging out the end of it...just brought it looped up from behind and through the top so it looks like a sling of some sort, then wrapped in vet wrap around the whole thing. Don't know if I did it right or not either lol, but that's how someone told me to do it and it worked well :)

I took a video of me putting my mare's tail up. I just need to edit it and get it online. It's a step by step on how to do it.

I've never seen anyone do it that way either. I wrap up the entire tail. Any bits that come out where too short to make it into the braid to begin with.

There's a chance that the tail hairs that aren't wrapped up will get damaged.

When Vega's tail is up, only a few strands come out (either because they were too short to fit into the braid or after a few weeks of it being on and her being a horse she broke a few strands.

This is what her tail looks like. In the winter she doesn't have the strings, but in the spring/summer/fall she does
