    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)

    Lol! No no just use the stain remover in a bucket

    Yeah, that's what I thought, about the drying out

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

    I dunno -- would be a cool pic having a horse's butt up to the washing machine and the tail going back and forth, back and forth... good aerial shot! LOL :)

    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.

    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 definitely try it this winter so if it did go horribly wrong it would grow nice for the summer
    Can anyone suggest any super conditioners?
