Tail Growth from '06 til now... (pics)

I noticed today after our ride that Gypsie's tail has grown a LOT since 2006 when Dakota chewed it off before we weaned him. Her tail's about doubled in length, so I just had to go back through my pictures and find some photos to show off! I love long tails, and after two years, Gypsie's tail is finally beginning to get long again! Granted, it's not as long as some horses, but considering how short it was, this is a dream come true.

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.

Thanks! Lol...

It may not really be that big of a deal to some people, but to me it's a dream come true because her tail is so hard to make grow out... Lol.

The amazing part to me is, it seems to have really grown a lot this past few months. LoL, I don't think it's silly at all. Good work! :)

Her tail has grown out a lot in the past few months. I think it's more because I've stopped brushing it and it only gets brushed out fully once every month or so... I'm a stickler for having tangle and knot free manes and tails, but I've been keeping my hands (and brushes) off her tail lately and I've seen a drastic improvement since last summer... Imagine if I keep my hands off it this wummer when it's warm... how much it'll hopefully grow!

What a difference! I think I would have difficulty not brushing out the tail as well, if I had a horse!
