New horse owner here and wondering about brushing out tails. I have been told never to brush out the tail, just pick through it with your fingers otherwise you'll thin it out too much. That just seems kind of gross to me and it seems like you'd have dreadlocks before too long. But again, I'm new at this so what do I know?
My horses tail is not terribly thick but it's not thin either - but it is long and we had to cut it so that it would clear the ground.
