I've been looking at these photos for a few days now and I have to admit I wasn't sure about the tail thing... But now...... it has grown on me and I love it :) It gives him character and I also love his name. I think you should keep his tail like it is now :)
Equiniphile- He is a registered quarter horse ^_^ His snip reminds me of the little star trek symbols lol.
Darla- Yes, it has REALLY grown on me too actually lol. I'll probably let it get a few inches longer for a bit more fly control, but I think I'll be cutting it short again lol. Or I'll just do what I do with my mare. Last week of spring I roach her mane then let it grow out again throughout the year so that by winter she has a goo thick mane to keep her warm. I'll just trim up his tail and let it grow through the year lol.
Anyway, it's a BEAUTIFUL day and I don't think I'll be able to go out and see him because I NEED to write up a resume! Lol.
Oh, he's really looking good & sounds like you two are doing great together. I got bell boots for my boy today, as he cut his heel Sunday on the 2-hour ride. Also some new grooming equipment-sure adds up fast! Our ground is still wet, but it will be much nicer soon!
