Question tail eating!!!!!

My yearling filly has started eating my mares tail!!! What do I do to stop this?
Is this just something yearlings do? I'm just hoping she doesn't start doing this with the other 2 horses in the pen.

Mix hot sauce and vasoline and rub on mares tail. I had some young ones do this to my guys tail. 1st I tried tail bags and it just got pulled off along with lots of tail. This was the only thing that worked and it worked quick.
Hope it helps.

Separation is best...but if you can't, try RapLast.

RapLast - Anti-Chewing Spray / Liquid - Horses

Good luck!

I'm not sure what to do for a chewed tail, but sounds to me like the hot sauce/vaseline would deter the yearling! One thing that I would check though, is to make sure your girlie is getting the nutrition that she needs. Sometimes they will chew wood or tails because they aren't getting the nutrients that they need, but, of course, sometimes they will do it just out of boredom.
