Recently acquired an Appaloosa with a HORRIBLE "rat tail" and was wondering if anyone had any hair growth recipes , or any idea how to make her tail grow. Open to suggestions thanks,
That apply in the title was support to be appy! Stupid word correct
Unfortunatly Appys are notorious for craptacular tails lol. Keep it clean and brushed out. Good luck! lol I have seen some appys with amazing tails and some with almost nothing.
I have a qh gelding that had his tail braided and then never taken out....for YEARS. when we got him we had to cut it all out. Its taken two years for it to grow back
Edit: if you have to cut on it, cut up and down through the hair, not across, that will help you keep some of the length. and, its kinda expensive, but you could order a small bottle of Wen. Its a conditioner that works wonders on my horses manes and tails. Cut very small amounts vertically in the tail and comb out as you go.
I have used regular conditioner, spray detanglers, and even hot oil treatments. The Wen works way better.
A rat tail is genetic as far as I know. You can try mtg and lots of fly spray, but chances are, it won't get much better.

Thanks it's just it's sooooon ugly! And I feel bad for her because flys are really bad here and she can't swat them. Anywa thanks for your opinions
A rat tail is genetic. There's no topical solution that will make the hair grow.
