At first he thought he had a horse that was eating / chewing them but it was only the white / mixed ones and they were cleanly cut right below the tail bone. Even took some mane hair as well on the few easier to catch and stand horses.
Anyone else have problems with this in their areas? A friend told me has heard of this and it is a by product of the loss of the slaughter market in that the uses for horse hair don't have a supply now. Kind of weird...a black market on poached horse mane and tail hair. If someone were to cut my horses tail right before fly season! Hopefully his tails grow back quickly.
