All tails are brand new, and come with a cover (assorted colours). Made with real horse hair.
A fake tail adds volume, and fullness to your horse’s/pony’s tail for shows.
*Custom is not available*
Can be used with the tail braided, or unbraided.
Tails should be ‘pulled up’ (see photo), anytime when the horse isn’t being ridden- in the trailer, in the stall, including in the stall between classes. The shavings create a ‘higher’ floor, so it’s quite easy for the horse to step on their fake, and rip it out, or the tail could fall apart from being stepped on.
✨To determine the minimum length you require, measure in inches from the bottom of the dock, to bottom of fetlocks. See photo.
If the colour is not a perfect match, might be able to make it work if it’s ‘blended’ in. I find with the multi-coloured tails, that if it matches one of the colours in the tail, it can usually work (see photo). Hang/attach the tail to truly see if it will work (don’t just hold the tail beside the real tail).
❌Fake tails are NOT meant for daily use. They are not meant for horses that have short tails, and need a longer tail to swat at flies ❌
*Fake tails should be taken out after showing as soon as possible. Docks are very sensitive, and fakes hung for a long period of time, can cause severe damage. If showing 2 days in a row, PLEASE NEVER leave a tail in for 2 days straight. Remove as soon as possible after showing to give the dock a break, and then can be put back in during the night/morning for day 2*
Please message me, if you would like to know how to attach them. ⭐️I posted a video on how to attach them, on Katie’s Horse Care Supply Facebook Page (dated November, 21, 2020).
Care Instructions: wash with same shampoo you use to wash your horse’s real tail. Hang to dry. Spray with Show Sheen. Brush EXTREMELY gently. Having a few hairs come out is normal. When not in use, hang freely (not in the cover). The cover should just be used for transporting the tail from place to place. I do not recommend storing it in a tack trunk laying down. If the tail is not kept straight, it may create a curl. TO REMOVE CURL: put water/Show Sheen on the curl, and gently brush.
