GAH! Filly chews dam's tail 10 days before her mare inspection
I just got a nasty case of scratches healed up in the mare and was feeling great that I would be able to present her looking her best....then the monster filly chewed her tail up overnight! It was already banged somewhat short because I didn't want the Desitin all in her tail, but it was well below her hocks and looked presentable. Filly took half of it to above her hocks! The brat!
Should I leave it like this or braid up in a mud knot?
I know they will be looking at her conformation and not the tail but we all want them to look their best! She won't be the first broodmare with a chewed tail for sure....just so disappointed! Argh.....
