I know what you mean Dressagebelle lol. My mare doesn't really 'tangle' she gets dreadlocks! In her tail AND mane! I can spend over an hour coming her out, but...at least they come out x.x I knew his tail was a lost cause after the 4th or so hour of work on it x.x (over all, because he's still so new to mannors he's a bit antsy standing still for too long, which also made it a bit difficult.)

Also! Funny note....I think he LIKES the tail cut....He's never been a tail swisher really. But now that the mass of blah is gone, he swishes it around in a circle lol. He doesn't do it all the time, but more like...when he gets bored I think. Either way, it's funny to see lol. He might just be doing it because of the difference in weight, but either way, it's cute and funny and I laugh every time, then he looks at me all like "What?" XD

If only he 'knew' lol

It's a shame that you had to cut his tail, it takes such a long time to grow out again, one of my old ponies had his tail chewed off by a herd or cows took ages to grow back in.

When it comes to fly control, well I intend to keep my horses tails put up this summer and I will add baler twine whisks to them so they can continue to whisk away

I wish I had before and after pics of a Mustang mare sent to us to train. She had been left alone in a pasture for I don't know how long and when she came to us her entire tail, from tail bone to the end, was a solid mat of hair. There were no loose ends of hair, it was just a hard clump. So I disagree, some tail mats are IMPOSSIBLE to get out. It took me an hour just to be able to cut through the mess. She had sticks, like actual small limbs stuck in the middle of it, and burrs. It was horrible! I cut off about 12" and brushed through what was left. Nothing would have helped that tail.
When we got Sundance the lady had already cut his tail. She said it wasn't able to be brushed out. It has grown very slowly and I can't wait to see him with a long, full tail.

If you go to walmart the hair product for ethic hair care spray oils, works good to add healthy oils and help detangle mane and tails.
