Examples from texts

The horses turned out to be fairly good, though their manes and tails were tangled, and their bellies round and taut as drums.
Лошади оказались порядочные, хотя гривы и хвосты у них были спутанные и животы – большие, растянутые, как барабан.

Some white pug-dogs got up from the hay and ran up to us, wagging their tails, and a long-bearded old goat walked away with an air of dissatisfaction; three stable-boys, in strong but greasy sheepskins, bowed to us without speaking.
Несколько белых шавок поднялось с сена и подбежало к нам, виляя хвостами; длиннобородый старый козел с неудовольствием отошел в сторону; три конюха, в крепких, но засаленных тулупах, молча нам поклонились.

They were by now awake, and all three of them, very much alike, were standing in a row at the edge of their hole, looking at their returning mother, and wagging their tails.
Они уже проснулись и все трое, очень похожие друг на друга, стояли рядом на краю своей ямы и, глядя на возвращавшуюся мать, помахивали хвостами.

And cat-tails and water-lilies here and there—a few along its shores.

Boxer saw them coming and put out his great hoof, caught a dog in mid-air and pinned him to the ground. The dog shrieked for mercy and the other two fled with their tails between their legs.
Увидев их, тот вознес свое огромное копыто и так поддал распластавшуюся в прыжке собаку, что та, жалобно скуля, покатилась по земле, а остальные, поджав хвосты, вильнули в сторону.

If it comes up heads, you win 3 percent of your investment; if it is tails, you lose 2.5 percent.
Если выпадает «орел», вы выигрываете 3% от суммы своих инвестиций; если выпадает «решка», вы теряете 2,5%.

In fact, this problem is equivalent to flipping a fair coin until getting heads twice in a row: Heads means "advance toward the apple" and tails means "go back. ")
Эта задача фактически эквивалентна подбрасыванию правильной монеты до появления двух решек подряд: решка означает „сделать шаг к яблоку", а орел означает „шаг назад")

His hair, which had turned quite grey, hung down in disorder under his crushed hat, and lay in long straggling tails on the collar of his shabby old great-coat.
Волосы, совсем поседевшие, в беспорядке выбивались из-под скомканной шляпы и длинными космами лежали на воротнике его старого, изношенного пальто.

They'll say, if the pale-faces have these cur'ous beasts with two tails, who knows but they've got some with three, or for that matter with four!
Они скажут: если у бледнолицых есть диковинные звери с двумя хвостами, то, как знать, быть может, у них есть и с тремя хвостами или, пожалуй, даже с четырьмя.

Most of the men round the table were in semi-European dress, their pig-tails curled up under billy-cock hats.
Картежники сидели вокруг стола, почти все были одеты наполовину по-европейски и прятали косички под шляпами.

A low wall of white tulips rose up in front of Margarita. Beyond it she saw countless lights in globes, and rows of men in tails and starched white shirts.
Невысокая стена белых тюльпанов выросла перед Маргаритой, а за нею она увидела бесчисленные огни в колпачках и перед ними белые груди и черные плечи фрачников.

Clinically effective antidepressants lower mice immobility which follows negative attempts to become free when their tails are fixed.
Клинически эффективные антидепрессанты снижают неподвижность, которая наступает у мышей после безрезультатных попыток освободиться, когда их хвост зафиксирован.

Or perhaps short-tailed males were not very good at running away from predators, and so had had their tails bitten off.
Или, может быть, короткохвостые самцы недостаточно проворно убегали от хищников и те успевали выдрать им хвосты.
