TAIL. The continuation of the vertebrae of the back hanging loose behind. The horse's tail has undergone various modifications according to the fashion of the day, from the dock or stump of " lang syne," to the brushy half-lengths of the present : these, indeed, are the most rational and becoming, if any species of mutilation can be supposed to add to beauty.
Harewood, Harry. A Dictionary of Sports. London: T. Tegg and son, 1835.
