So who got their tail cut ? INDIGO DID !

Lol, well as much as i loved Indigo's tail.
I decided to cut it, i only planned on taking abit off, but obviously i changed my mind without knowing it !
So... i will post photos of him before ;) and than after photos.
My main reason for cutting it was because it was long, almost to the ground, i didnt want him to trip over it and sometimes he would spook at it lol and try to kick it ! well so off came his beautifully long tail !

(excuse the after photos, i never brushed him lol! )

BEFORE




First day i brought him home



NEW PHOTOS !!











What do you all think ?
Critiques welcome, I also realize he is on the skinny side, but if you havent read he was a rescue, But he is my baby <3
Also, i do realize its a bit of a clean off cut, just straight, but i tried to tidy it up abit from looking like that and well my tails arent much of a match for his tail,the ones i had used.

I think he is looking much better than the pics form when you first got him, it will take time but i am sure he will fill out time... i already have a crush on him, cant wait to see what he looks like after a few more months with porper care!

I still stand by my initial thoughts that he's a diamond in the rough. He's already looking SO much better - kudos to you!! I cannot wait to see pictures when he's all shed out and groomed up with more weight on come spring. I'm willing to bet you're going to look at the initial before pictures and not recognize him.

What a sweet boy! And mom did a good job on his tail. ;) I am a fan of the straight cut tail.

I had a dream a few weeks ago that my someone (I couldn't find out who) cut one of my mare's tails up to the tip of her tail bone! I woke up so upset! Haha.
