Peanut has no mane, but a pretty long tail...

I just keep the bottem tied up so he doesnt pull it out.



Cant see it too well, but its on the ground 3 inches!

This was Oliver's tail and mane...his tail was always especially thick and long, though I never kept it up in a braid or anything, as well as it never dragged because he was a driving horse and would step on it. He just naturally grew it.







And Pippin has the same kind of tail, and his mane is getting very long, though it is a bit thinner, which is nice. Both mane and tail look better than in the picture now.

Not a great picture, but this is "Scooter" our two year old colt. This was taken earlier in the year, and his mane has grown since then. We're going to have to thin/shorten it some, as it's just too much--Scooter is quite small & very fine, and all that mane makes him look a bit off balance.



We've got a two year old filly here whose tail drags several inches on the ground, but I don't have a photo that shows iit...

What do we do to get them long & keep them long? Not a thing--they just grow that way! No braids, no tail bags, nothing.

My mini used to have a long mane and tail
and now they are still long just not as long


I think the best thing is the three part tail bags, they keep the tail strong and protected! L

Minihgal,


I joined the forum after Oliver's passing and so I've only seen photos of him driving. My GOD he was a good-looking horse!
Maybe to some people he might not be what they're looking for, but he's everything I've always loved about my Arab Spyderman. The color, the motion, the smooth body with the lovely neck tie-in...Wow! Thank you for sharing him with us.

Here is my guy








I try and keep his tail braided and/or in a bag most of the time. Always spray lots of Healthy Hair moisturizer on it before braiding and bagging, as well as when I groom him.

Also, lots of conditioner when I bathe him.

Oh, how I miss Oliver, although I never met him in person. He will always be one of my all-time favorites! These photos do my heart good.

Some horses just seem to grow naturally thick and long manes and tails, and some have naturally thinner hair both in their coat and tails.

Here's one of our stallion, Buster, in early spring, and in in July. He was having a Good Hair Day!
