So is it still ok to use a tail wrap like in the previous video when your horses are constantly going thru the forest? Will it snag on branches or tear out? I've never done it before but my white horse has a perma brown stained tail and I'm looking for a solution to keep it clean. I'm still trying every product and potion out there to remove the stains but once they're out, I want to keep it clean. I'm thinking that particular wrapping method will work.

Also, what can you do about long manes with the same issues? Constantly tangle and dirty.

I am wrapping tails for winter in such wraps. They are made of fleece, easy to use and wash.

That's how she (and her tail) looked in day she arrived:






At the spring started to touch the ground:

Have you tried tailtuxedos.com? I've bought 4 from them and have had so much luck even with my destructive horse.

I'd get a fleece three tuber braid-in tail bag and make sure the braids are tight!
