- In a Mickey Mouse comic Mickey is in a horse-drawn carriage. The horse's tail is flipping back and forth, slapping Mickey. Tying the tail to various things doesn't help, so Mickey goes around front and pulls at the horse's head, shortening the tail and extending the neck.
- In this Mickey Mouse cartoon Mickey throws a lasso at Pete who is riding Horace Horsecollar. The lasso snags Horace's tail and pulls it, shortening his neck at the same time.
