Hi, I am brand new here and I have a question that has baffled me for a while and I think this is the PERFECT place to ask! I was away from horses for quite a while and recently got back 'into' them. I bought some blankets for my new horses and they all have tail cords (NEVER had those when I worked with them years ago)... HOW does one use the tail cord? I just tie it to itself or remove it completely since it gets covered in manure and is ugly. Do you actually TIE it to the tail? IF so, How? Anyway - I would be VERY grateful for some assistance!! I tried a few google searches and I haven't be successful in finding information on how to use it.
