So every year I hock (yep, up to the hocks) my horse's tail when winter arrives, to keep it out of the mud
He's a TB with a tail like a friesian
Every spring it's back to the ground
Until the following winter, I have to trim it regularly to keep it off the ground
So I figured, why not make $ off of it
After all, he's a hard keeping TB, who costs an arm and a leg in feed
So anyone knows where you can sell a tail??
So many QH and hunters out there w/fake tails. Where do the companies get the hair to make all those, apart from slaughter horses. And do they use those anymore since they're not killed here??
And I'm hearing stories of people having their horse's tails cut off, at night, in their fields??
I think fake tails are stupid too. An older QH lady once told me they were used to hide the fact that QH looked so crippled behind, when they moved. She hated what the QH people had become.
I think I send an e-mail to CustomTails, never heard back. Will send a 2nd msg.
Horse is bay btw, so black tail, which I'm told is not worth much as it's so common of a color :-)
