I just got my horse recently. She's a TWH, and I had read that they have long, full tails, but I really wasn't prepared for just how true that is. The first time I tried to curry comb it, I could see it was pointless. Her mane is pretty silky and was really easy to comb and detangle. Literally took 5 minutes. Her tail is another story. It's thick, curly, and long. And did I mention thick? Oh, and it's thick...Sooo, any suggestions? Am I wasting my time with the curry comb? Do I need to wash and use some mane-n-tail first? It's been so long since I groomed a horse with such a full tail (I've been working with a quarter horse the past several months, and hers is so short and sparse compared to my horse). I remember minis having had very thick manes and tails from my childhood, but I don't think they were this wavy.
