Actually I prefer the blunt look ;) I have (and know others) horses with full, thick tails that are cut straight off at the fetlocks.

Like I always giggle: There isn't anything natural about the way *I* groom a horse and want it to look! LOL

Tail Extension

My friend and I were both interested in tail extensions a few years ago. I bought a really nice black tail from Southend tail Extensions in Canada. My friend decided on a loop tail he purchased in the US.

My grommet tail is easy to put in and looks natural. My friends loop tail never looked right. It looked like there was a lump on the end of the tail bone.

I can use the tail for my western and english classes and I have even braided with the tail in.
I definitely got the better tail.

Also, if you're concerned about color, with most companies, you can send in a lock of your horses tail and they'll match it up for you.
