I mostly leave my guys' tails alone unless we're showing or they are really tangled and dirty. My draft colt's tail is huge, big, kind of dreadlock curls and when I do brush it, it takes forever and is massive! It would take too long to do every time I ride so I just neaten up the top and trim the bottom when it drags on the ground. The appy has a nice medium length tail with lots of hair and usually I'll neaten it up too. I try not to brush the paint's tail much as it is thin and I don't want to break off too much hair. When I do brush them, I massage lots of conditioner in and do it piece by piece with a human hairbrush. I've never been one for braiding their tail, afraid it'll get caught on something!
