Tail Wrapping with Bandage?

Opinions on it? Uses? What do you use it for?
How do you wrap a tail bandage?

Horses can't talk, but they'll speak if you listen.

I think it's called a "mudwrap," and was used for Foxhunting on muddy days to keep the tail clean. Do a web search, and I'm sure that there is a YouTube site somewhere with instructions.

Also they use it for mares who are close to foaling to keep the tail out of the way.

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

Be very, very careful when wrapping a tail. You can cut off the blood supply to the dock and end up killing it - the tail hairs will fall out.
Avoid using them for extended periods, and only if you have a very good reason for doing so. Keeping the tail flat is not a good enough reason.
