It definitely has NOT happened at the new barn (its pretty much in the middle of a city with 24 hr care), but she said she heard that people were doing it.
I mean, think about it:
Very easy and quick to hack a tail (moreso than a mane) and either create a "fake" tail to sell for $2-300 plus or sell the hair for other uses (which I have no idea what they would be). That's an easy way to make a quick buck!
I mean if you hit up one barn with 10 horses, it wouldn't take you very long to make $2-3000!!
