Morganshow are you talking about a chemical straightener or a flat iron?

What is the diference and I was talking about one of these

Why? All it would do is dry out the hair. Plus, it would be very easily to burn him by accident

You are talking about a flat iron. Can you use it, yes. A horses tail is very coarse, so a higher heat may be needed to do the job. Be very careful not to accidently touch any skin, could result in a burn and probably a kick! Take small sections , going to take a lot of time. Might even want to apply a thermal protector (product) on the hair first.

I wouldn't do it because 1. It seems totally un-necessary and 2. It could damage their hair :)
