From the name, I assume that I tie the 2 D-rings on either side of the tail together with the tail cord. However, when I do this (either on top or under the tail), my horse manages to poop all over the rear inside of his cooler. Then, as he moves around, this fresh poop get smeared all over his clean, white cheeks.
So, I've been leaving the tail cord untied and sometimes I even flip the back end of his cooler up over his croup to protect it from poop! What am I doing wrong?? He doesn't have this poop problem with normal blankets (with tail flap and normal leg straps).
