On horsehero, on 'Laura Braisley's Eventing Tips', she says you 'can turn a pair of thick ladies tights into a tail bag'..

How do I do so ? I have the tights, but what now ?:confused:

I'm guessing she bandages/wraps the horse's dock using a stretchy bandage, pulls the cut-off tight up over the tail, and holds it in place by bandaging over the top a couple of times. That's what I did when trailering a poopy horse.

Hope that makes sense!

I think I worked it out :)

I'll take a picture of it this arvo. It looks pretty ok to me, though it looks like a 2 man job :)

Cut off a stocking leg. Put two slits in the top of the stocking so you have two tabs to tie together. Then you basically have the same creature as a lycra tail bag you would purchase.

If you have three stockings (not sure what you'd do with the fourth, since they always come in pairs...), you could fashion one of those 3-tube tail bags that you put each section of a braid in and braid down. I always liked those kind best, they seem to put less stress on the root of the hair.
