The Tale of the Tail
As a livestock photographer I get to work with some wonderful British farm animals, and very often that includes pedigree dairy cows. The cows all get their tails shaved for hygene reasons (and who wants a cow-shite tail in their face when milking!?) but when they go to the shows , their handlers want them to look their very best......so cue the "false tail". I have several false tails in varying colours/breeds for getting the perfect show photo, but nothing in "blonde aquataine" so a forthcoming commission meant that I had to order one in the appropriate shade. It arrived this afternoon and very nice it is too, although I think the delivery van driver thought I was joking when I told him what the parcel contained!
