Wash the horses tail with QuickSilver and let it soak for a bit. If it turns the tail a bit purple use water and white vinegar. I washed my white paint mare with QuickSilver about 3 times per week for three weeks and it was MAGIC. You can also spray Wow! On his tail :) I've talked to folks with Gypsy's that say it works!

Totally agree with this-my paint mare has a white tail that gets just filthy (especially when she's in heat) and I swear by Quicsilver. I have found it doesnt dry the hair out too much, since its changing the color by altering the way light reflects off of it (hence why its dark purple) rather than 'bleaching' it out.
