Also, is there a way to save the mare's mane & tail from the baby eating it? My neighbor's 4 month old colt made his mama's mane & tail so short. Dakota has a tail that touches the ground & I'd hate to see that reduced to a stump. I thought about a tail bag, but she would most likely find a way to take it off. She doesn't like anything on her (blankets, fly masks) and I usually end up collecting it from the ground or fence or stall where she took it off at.
