    My horses get their tails out of bags too ... some horses are just good.

    If you are going to leave it in a bag I would suggest that you get a good fly sheet for your horse to help compensate with the lack of a "tail". I am an avid fly sheet/fly mast user

    I made a new one today so far so good. I made fly spray and pulled out the fly gear!

    What I do is:
    Wash the tail
    Let it dry
    Braid the tail
    Roll it up into itself 3 times
    Put a band around it so it doesnt fall apart
    Take vetrap and go all around the tail
    Don't forget to go through the braid a few times to make sure it stays in
    Take bailing twine and put it through the bottom for a fly swatter
    It usually only takes me about half of a roll of vetrap for this and stays in for at least a week
