Silly Ty with the short tail checks me out to see if I’m really planning to cross the arroyo just like he did!

His short tail is a complete mystery. He showed up that way recently. Another stallion – Seven – had a short tail AND mane a few years ago, but fortunately they both grew back. Sometimes horses will get thick “rats nests” in their tails, so maybe it finally became a glob of dead hair that he caught on something and pulled out.

Notice the darkish sky above and behind him. We got some good rain Monday night and early Tuesday morning. Of course, by later Tuesday, the ground was solidly dry, but every little bit helps.

Maybe he’s just into “crew-cuts” for now! πŸ™‚ I didn’t know horses could grow their tails back after losing some of that hair. You’re always an endless encyclopedia for us newbies, TJ!

Ha! Now there’s a picture! Sure … it’s just hair! It takes a while, but before you know it, he’ll be back to “normal.” Enjoy your visit tomorrow!
