Am I awful to consider this?

Well, I just put my filthy coat in the washer but before i put it in, i put some vanish on it. The filth just disappeared and I thought... Could I use that on Misty's tail is i washed it of really well and conditioned it afterwards or something? Like just the bottom of her tail, not the dock?

You want to put your horses tail in a washing machine? Or am I reading that wrong?
If you actually do want to put your horses tail in a washing machine I would say that would be a bad idea...

I think it would really, really dry out her hair. You'd have to follow up with deep deep conditioning/and or a cholesterol treatment (i think)

I agree, it may dry it out. Might be more worse than good!

Ride more, worry less.

I would give it a go if you are sure to condition it really good afterwards

I want to see a horse backed up to a washing machine out in the middle of a paddock somewhere, like under a tree and the horse happily eating out of a hay bag and letting it's tail go for a spin !!!! LOL... Outstanding mental cartoon here...hahahaha...


on the serious side, I think it would be terribly drying.

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

Haha. Okay. Yeah, I was really confused.


I agree that you would need lots of good conditioner. Also, make sure none of it gets on her skin as that stuff is usually pretty harsh. Personally, I wouldn't do it, but you could definitely try.

I don't know what to do if it did try it I would definately try it this winter so if it did go horribly wrong it would grow nice for the summer
Can anyone suggest any super conditioners?
