Texas Mud Knot?

Ok. My 2 field trial horses both have extremely long tails, and I spend alot of time dealing with mud and tangled branches and who knows what in them after a field trial. I heard one guy I know refer to a "Texas Mud Knot" that he uses which basically looks like a braid/bun on his horses butt. However unlike the other attempts I have made his knot never seems to fall out. Any one ever heard of such a thing? If not what do you use? Figure 6-8hrs a day chasing dogs through the giggle weeds.....

I don't know what a mud knot is, but I have just been bagging my guys tail and it seems to work.

I was taught like this, not sure if it's correct though...

There are multiple versions. The one I use involved braiding all of it and wrapping around the base and then closing the same way. (Though it's the closing I have trouble with.. lol)
