    "Shocking" feeling while brushing tail??

    So our horses board with another one, a mare. Today was the first day she let me even touch her. I was brushing out her tail because it was all matted and bad. (but not as bad as Golley's was last year! We had to cut it off because it was impossible to get out. Not joking.) Well, I was brushing, and each time I tried to get the tangle out - when the brush came back towards me - I felt this like, shocking feeling. It was only on my thumb though - none of my other fingers. But it felt like it was electricity or something. It wasn't static electricity - I know that for sure. Well, after I brushed one more time it did the same thing and made my thumb bleed. It wasn't a bad cut, but nothing should do that. Do you have any ideas on what could have happened? I just cannot figure it out.

    My guess is their might have been something in her tail that was slightly cutting you every time you brushed and eventually it broke through the skin.
