So I have been trying to grow my mare's tail (and save it from the horrible things she manages to do to it). I braided her tail in a normal braid below the dock and left it alone for 3 days. It looked normal when I went to un-braid it. IDK HOW she did it but it was completely matted (all 3 strands of the braid were turned into a dreadlock). It took me 30 min just to un-braid it and another 20 to brush it using a butt load of conditioner and sprays. So I re-braided it and used a tail bag. Both where half way down her tail in an hour. So I braided and folded the braid 3 times and used a hair tie to hold it place (different day and I washed all the stuff out of her tail before braiding in the first place). I used this vid as instruction to see what I was doing wrong.
That lasted an hour. This is the tail bag im using.

So im at a loss as how to keep her tail braided and keep the bag on.
