Keeping it clean, braided and wrapped up is the best bet! You can braid up a clean dry tail, bring it through the top of the braid (below the tail bone) to fold it up and stuff it in a clean tube sock (cut the top of the sock into 4 strands and tie it into the tail below the tail bone). During the summer you can add some strands of baling twine to help swish flies! Just make sure you take it down and wash/ condition it every few weeks, and make sure the braid isn't too tight at base of the tail bone. Best of luck!
