Shadow carries his tail high and to the right. When he is really rolling,
it will be higher and 'righter' than ever. As I neatly French braid his
beautiful, long, full tail you can imagine the view anyone behind me has,
especially since he tends to be a little 'loose' (you know what I mean)
during a ride. It keeps his tail fairly clean, but I have lost a few
riding buddies who don't have the stomach to 'ride drag' and don't have
enough horse to 'ride scout'
