German Clip with Natural Tail

My red Standard has a German Clip with a sweetheartface beard/mustache.

He is going to his groomer at the end of the month and I’m going to have her change things up and do a fully clean face this time.

I have never really been sure what to do with his tail, which his breeder left natural. I had it shaved at the base with a feathered plume the rest of the length of the tail (his tail is closer to loose waves than curly, which I find isn’t an uncommon trait with reds). My husband hated the base shaved, so we started growing it out a while back.

I have always been scared his tale would look silly shaved like you would normally see with a German Clip because it was left natural. And since he had the beard/mustache, the longer length on the tail actually balanced his look out.

However, since we’re going with a clean face, I think for it to look balanced, we should probably shave the tail as well. Do you think it will look silly with his long natural tail?

Check this thread for photos on what a curly natural tail looks like when shaved for german clip. I think it still looks good!
