I have to agree with those that don't like the look of a fake tail. Very easy to pick out and I have such a hard time believing that someone used one and so many people went "Wow! I love that fake tail, think I will get me one ) just like the "falls" of the late 60's Long hair was in, parted down the middle. Falls were in everyone girls bathroom that didn't have long hair :O)

PBritton2U...

Not sure if you were commenting on my comment about movement...so I wanted to clarify...

I was just saying that I thought it could be because of the horses movement that the tail didn't flow behind him. They actually didn't show the results of the class and I wouldn't know a good HUS ride if it bit me on the butt. LOL I just happen to love dapple greys which is what led me to that video.

I wish I had pics of my big boy's tail. I have to cut a few inches off every few months so it doesn't drag on the ground. As he is 17hh, he has one seriously long, full tail!

You would be shocked at how many times I've heard someone comment on how they keep their tails so pretty.....

Nah. It wasn't you. Just a comment in general. :)

And I get comments all the time about how stunning my horse's tail is...at open shows. LOL. People think it's real. (It's all how you tie it in, people. ;p. You need to use LOTS of Cowboy Magic Detangler, too. That keeps it from getting locked between a horse's legs.)

Anyway, I love nothing more then telling people who comment on my horse's tail, "It's fake." OMG. The look of horror mixed with facination on their face is PRICELESS.

Pam, if the horse in your avatar is the horse they are commenting on, I can see that is a fake tail from the picture. I can see a piece of the real tail though :)
Beautiful animal though.

Beautiful example of a tail! Much rather see that tail than a fake tail any day. I was trying to find a picture of my horses tail and am wondering if I never take butt shots!!!

Thing is that it takes work to get a tail to look like that. Plus some genetics. Some people just do not want to do the work or the horse does have the genetics to get a good trail.

Yes it does. My best friend had a Saddlebred stallion that had a tail that drug 6' behind him I never got to meet Falcon before he died but I saw pictures of him in the showring. I laughed at the number of horses that were scared of that black and white thing slithering after the horse if front of them
