On the braiding comment – if done correctly braiding and using tail bags can work because it protects the hair from damage however it is not making it grow any faster, just preventing it from breaking. If done wrong, a braided / wrapped tail can cause serious damage – a gelding at our property is evidence of that – half his tail fell out at the dock and it is scabbed and gross. It must be clean, and wrapped in such a way that the weight is not pulling at the root. **Obviously if you have good results from braiding, you are doing something right.
