Last February, I told the tale of Mullet Skunk Tail McPonyson. A pony with a tail so abysmal that when he went around trainers would shake their heads, women would snicker quietly to themselves, and children would scream in horror. It was such an atrocious mullet that I was actually asked if I bushed it out on purpose. Haha - yes you dizzy bitch, I cut my horse's tail to look this terrible.
Well. I've been doing what I said in my post about Mullet Skunk Tail. Basically, nothing. I tried not to brush it, or anger it in anyway (I think of that tail as its own living, breathing organism). A gentle dandy-brushing at the base was all it got. During the summer I'd wash it about every five weeks, and at that time I'd brush it out. Throughout the seasons (winter, spring, and summer) it has been covered by some sort of sheet (winter blanket, spring sheet, fly sheet). Yes, my horse has a lot of clothes, but he has terrible allergies, which is why he rubbed his tail out in the first place. He needs to be shielded from all of the elements he's allergic to (everything).
I'm proud to say - it's looking pretty damn good! Here are some before and afters. This is from February to about a week ago. Mind you, it wasn't even at it's worst in February. It just happens to be when I got documentation of the bush.
