Holding Tail To Side-Natural!?

I always thought olding a tail to the side was natural. I can see that if they are kinking it to one way or another while riding and acting annoyed, they may have a back problem, but some breeds, like Morgans, hold their tails up and to the side....... Or so I thought. Every Morgan I've seen has done it, from trailhorses to show horses, have done it. Arabs hold 'em up.
So, that is natural,right? I've always assumed it was. The thing that isn't natural is kinking it to the side.............
Am I correct?? :)

Our Quarab used to do it all the time. I have seen quite a few horses do it... Tom does it when he gets excited and feelin' studly, I think it is natural.
