Coon Tails....
 
So, I was thinking the other day, that I dont think Ive ever seen a "coon tail". So can you guys that have horses with coon tails post some pics for me to see :)


Just wondering...does Rodeo have one? Not quite sure what it is....but Rodeo has white/gray, and a lot of funky colors going through his tail...here is a pic.

'Coon', or 'skunk', tails are caused by rabicano.
They look like this:

What Rodeo has is baby flaxen. It will most likely disappear as he ages :wink:
