Crazy tail

Look at how our stallion carries his tail:






Sometimes is look almost normal, but usually, it is kinked. It bothers me, not him, but once he grows out of his "akward, leggy" 3 yr old stage, he will be shown in halter and liberty classes, and I know that tail will causes issues, esp. As an Arab. He never carries it like this, like he should:

We've only had him around two months, and I've not had the vet out since he has been here, but I plan to email him photos for ideas on what is going oin and how to "fix" the problem.
I wonder if a Chiropractor could address it. . .

It looks fairly normal to me, for an arabian. I've seen them with varying degrees of straightness, or lack of. I had an egyptian who curled his tail over his back, never bothered him, was just how he was built.
He wont be marked down for it. Can't hurt to get him checked out though just in case, if you think theres something wrong, you know him best.

My TB carries his tail to the side and the chiro recently diognosed it as a broken tail. Most likely from people using his tail to force him into barriers/floats.
