The Tail Boot can be used at all times, just like a traditional tail bag. Routinely check the Tail Boot to make sure it is in good position. The length of time it can be left in varies with how active a horse is with its tail. If it is fly season I would suggest every one to two weeks but if it is winter you can go much longer.
Can I spray my horse off after riding?
Yes, just try not to completely drench the tail.
Can I deep condition my horses tail in the Tail Boot?
Yes, however I would suggest to not leave the tail wet in the boot for more then 24 hours.
Is the Tail Boot washable?
Yes, the boot is machine washable but I would suggest hang drying.
What is the life expectancy of the Tail Boot?
The Tail Boot has only been in action since October of 2016 and there are some prototypes going strong still. Since we have started we have made gradual changes to the design to add strength and durability to the Tail Boot. We are continually trying to better our product but at this time a set life expectancy has not been determined.
Is there a warranty for the Tail Boot?
If something happens to the Tail Boot within the first 30 days of use you may contact me. If you are not satisfied with your Tail Boot you may send it back in the first 30 days for a refund. All returns and repairs must include contact information and must be sent to 1102 Kenyon Rd. Twin Falls, ID 83301.
What are some things I can do to get the most out of my Tail Boot?
When riding be sure to remove the tail. If your horse steps on it while backing, even though the material is very durable, there is a chance of ripping the fabric or pulling the velcro strap from the seam.
When conditions are muddy or during the times of the year when the flies are not out remove the "Tail" part of the Tail Boot. If the Tail Boot gets caked in mud it adds a lot of unnecessary weight to the "Boot" and horses tail.
If you have colts that are also known for chewing tails and it is not fly season (horses actively moving their tails) then it is also best to remove the "Tail" off the "Boot" and if you want to deter those from chewing you can spray or dip in a pepper solution.
The Tail Boot is an innovative Patent Pending tail bag used to manage and maintain long, beautiful tails and it also keeps the bugs off of those who do not have much of a tail! Made in the U.S.A with some recycled materials!
