Braided and Preserved my first Tail! :)

I braided it once then took it out and put a shoelace in after

I used a sock instead of a bag :)

Lol Love the sock! I'm going to go steal some of my husbands! What a grand idea. He'll go out and see all the horses tails wrapped in socks! Bet that'll be the surprise of his life!

Vetwrap works much better =)

I always use socks to put tails up. They work great and are cost effective. I also use the twine that we take off the hay bales to weave through the braid and anchor it.

Good job!

Well that's good. Here is florida the sand gets EVERY WHERE! I seem to have beter luck with the vet wrap. I'm glad you can use a sock because its much cheeper in the long run.

I have used the sock before, but I had issued getting it to stay in...I have used vet wrap with better sucess, but if it gets waterlogged it turns into gum..
SStack. Has gaurd-tex. Its like vet wrap, but not strechy and doesnt gum up. Problem with that is its only available in 4 rool packs and its like $25.
I havent found it anywhere else.

With the socks, I cut them at the top to make four long strands and tie them up near the dock, crossing the back left strand to tie with the front right strand and right back to the left front. I change them every month but they would last much longer if I allowed them to.
