Have you ever noticed that your horses look like they were dipped in water
or made out of metal
especially during nightime? Well if you did don't worry, you are not going crazy!
This is an actual issue caused by their tails
which for some reason enable the specular shininess
on the entire horse's body resulting in this silly issue.
I became aware of this issue like 10 years ago when I stumbled across a mod that attempted to fix this, but unfortunately it only included 2 tails for the adult horses so I decided to make my own (yes this is one of my first mods ever dating back to 2011)
This mod overrides 8 out of 10
horse tails that came with the pets EP fixing the shininess and will conflict with any other mod that overrides the same resources. These tails are:
There are 2 tails that I did not touch: The Medium Length Tail and the Braided Tail (both for adult horses)
The Medium length tail
, is not
broken so it doesn't require any fixing.
The Braided tail
, for some odd reason just won't work. I tried everything I could possibly think of but the shininess remains no matter what. That's why I included an extra
package which makes the braided tail "not valid for random" so randomly generated horses won't
equip it so they won't look shiny. You can still
pick it in CAS if you want to.

From my testing, most horses created prior to installing the mod will NOT get affected. All you have to do is repick their tails in CAS and that should fix it. No idea why this happens as this is an override, but I imagine this is a CAS issue as the same happens with custom skins/eyes etc.
The mod I found years ago that made me aware of this issue. (can't remember the name)
