I braid all my horses tails and use tail bags. I use the fly sheets and fly spray. Trying to keep those mares tails white is impossible without doing this!

Theres a brand in the uk called Gold Label they have a shampoo you spray on and brush out. if it aint sold in the states it will be on ebay. and theres another thing I use called lavender wash its by a company called barrier. again if its not sold in the US then ebay. brilliant stuff cheap (over here anyway) and easy and cleans pretty much everything. the lavender wash u dnt have to rinse off it works really weel if u dilute it and use daily in a spray bottle... then u might not have t braid and the stuff seems to keep flies away too x
