    Getting a horse's tail WHITE! What can I use BESIDES shampoo?

    Ok, so I was wondering if anyone has any secrets for getting a horses tail nice and white.

    I don't really want to go out and by a "whitening shampoo" or a "whitening spray" so let's hear what you have used!

    My friend who owns a gray horse with a white tail and mane uses Quicksilver on it. I guess it's a kind of shampoo or whatever? But it's made specifically to get the horse white, white, WHITE!

    We used some kind of Panteen(sp?) shampoo on out horse's white feet. I suppose it might work on a tail as well. I wouldn't know sine my horse has a black tail. LOL

    I used a pantee shampoo on my horses tail to, it was the anti-residue one. It didn't get it perfectly white but it did a pretty good job.

    I use Blue Rinse shampoo (the stuff they sell for white haired people) but with some elbow grease I find that dish soap works alright too. To me it's a matter of consistently washing the tail- a couple of time a week instead of the day before the show. I also put Mane&Tail conditioner in the tail every day after I ride.

    Question. I am reading this with interest, as my paint has a predominantly white tail, but he also has, light red, dark red, brown and nearly black. Will these remedies, dull the colored parts?
    Your horse called. He said "Get off the computer!"

    I know Gilligan got off the island, because he saved a horse here on HGS.

    Hmmm. Now that I am looking at it, I guess it is NOT predominantly white. The white does run on the underside too though, which you cannot see in this pic.
