Wouldn't life be just super if you had an extra hand? One that could be used to [[MundaneUtility fetch your coffee or dial your phone]]? [[BreadEggsMilkSquick Or]] [[KickTheDog throttle the crap out of that yappy dog]]? Look no further than behind you, attached to your spine. If you are a bit of a pickpocket in the midst of those that keep [[GenreSavvy watching where your hands are at,]] this might become extremely useful.

** Not that lacking hands seems to hinder them in any way. The non-mage ponies can make clothing, cook food, and do all sorts of other everyday tasks that would normally require manual dexterity, either with the aid of their teeth, or with just the plain hooves themselves (not sure if this is ever really explained). The unicorn-types just use telekinesis/magic.

** The ponies are occasionally shown to have prehensile tails, despite the tails apparently consisting only of hair (although Pinkie Pie at least does have full PrehensileHair as well...). They are often useful for doing things which would normally be difficult due to lack of hands. Most notably [[Reacp/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E6BoastBusters Applejack]], [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E25PartyOfOne Rarity]], [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS4E7Bats Pinkie Pie]], and [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS4E7Bats Fluttershy]]. Which makes what Rarity does in [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E2ElementsOfHarmony the second episode]] seem more violent.

** One of the most prominent examples of this in the series is in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS6E19BuckballSeason Buckball Season]]", where Fluttershy repeatedly and deliberately uses her tail to great effect to catch and deflect incoming buckballs throughout the episode, even holding one in her tail at one point.



** The Ahuizotl who appears as the villain of ''[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E16ReadItAndWeep Daring-Do and the Sapphire Statue]]'' has a hand on the end of his tail, just as [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ahuizotl_(creature) ahuizotls]] were said to have in Myth/AztecMythology.
** Discord also uses his tail this way, with the added bonus that he can stretch it to any length at will. Most often to wrap around a pony and bring her face-to-face with him. He once does a BadassFingersnap with the tuff of white fur at the end of it (to keep it more discreet than his usual show of magic).
