My filly has a wavy tail and my last horse had a wavy tail. The weird thing is, there tails arent as...silky(i guess that's the word to use)as the horses with straight tails. My Paint filly has a wavy mane and tail and my bay QH just had a wavy tail. Its very interesting.

My appy has a straight tail, and so does my mare... His is like fine hair, you can usually just comb your fingers through it. My mare's tail on the other hand, despite it being straight, is so wirey and tangly that she gets dreadlocks quite often.

The Morgan's I'm working with right now ALL have wavey manes and tails. All of them. .__.;;

Just depends. None of my horses have curly tails but I like the curls for show so I get them wet and braid them for the night before the show. I take them out in th emorning and hairspray them to stay

Mare has a straight tail; gelding has a naturally wavy one. His never seems to knot up or form dreadlocks though.

My Fox Trotter has a wavy tail, but a straight mane. Her tail hairs are super strong and course, and her mane hairs are thin and break easily. It's weird.

She's had it since she was a baby:

Here she is now: http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3257/...f362ab63_b.jpg

Her sire has a way tail: http://www.missourifoxtrottersatoz.c...0CLOUD%20C.jpg

But her dam doesn't.

I think it's gorgeous when it's brushed out, but it gets tangled so easily and becomes dreads (like someone else said), haha.

Jack has plenty of natural wave in his tail. It's pretty thick as well (wavy manes and tails tend to be). Oddly enough, it rarely gets bad tangles. A bit "stuck together" if you get what I mean, but nothing a little show sheen and a brush doesn't fix with minimal effort. His mane is very thick as well but is straight as a stick.

My Quarter horse mare has a very wavy mane and tail, and my Quarter horse gelding has very straight mane and tail (But his fur curls when it is wet).
