Tying a mud knot on a horse’s tail

A long tail on a horse is a handy instrument during fly time, but during a muddy spell, that long tail can get to be a problem. In gumbo country especially, the tail can get mud balls in it that can be difficult to get out and can even pull the tail hair out at the dock.

Rather than resorting to trimming it off short when it becomes a solid chunk of mud, one can do a little prevention instead and retain the length of the tail in the process. It’s not only efficient, but some of us even think it looks pretty good.
