Thereby Hangs a Tail

milton-tail-oct-16

Milton was soliciting attention, so I grabbed the Cowboy Magic and detangled his tail. They both love this. To preserve the hairs, I use my fingers rather than brushes or combs. Grab a hunk of tail. Separate out hairs one by one. Grab a new hunk. Keep going until tail is free of snarls. Doesn’t take as long as you might think.

Milton dropped his head and completely zoned out. Rodney is the same way. Fingercombing the tail seems to be a soothing activity for them.

Does anyone else’s horses like having their tails fussed with?

  1. Yeah, I think so… 🙂

  2. Splinter is in perpetual motion, until he realizes someone is playing with his tail. Then he stands PERFECTLY STILL and enjoys the barbie beauty day.

    I don’t have a horse but my husband zones out when I fuss with his head/hair.

  4. Princess stood like a rock; Chief liked when I fussed with any part of him.
