Anyway, ever since I got Gypsie, I've brushed her tail every single time I caught her. Her tail has never been very long because of me always breaking hairs as I brushed it, but last year I quit brushing her tail and started putting MTG in it. I don't use MTG in the winter, though... it costs too much and one bottle will last me close to a year... anyway, during winter I quit using MTG and just fingerbrushed her tail every now and then and kept the twigs and stuff out of it. Her tail gets a good, careful, slow brushing so as to not break any hairs about once a month or so, depending on how tangled it is... and I must say, I'm extremely pleased with the results!
Here's some ''before'' and ''after'' pictures that go from 2006 til now... you can see for yourself just how much of a change her tail has gone through! The yellow line is where her tail ends in the pictures... and in a few pictures you really can't see it very well because her tail is pretty sunbleached right now. The pictures start in 2006 and end in 2009.
