So first of all, I apologize for the size of the pictures.

And second...IT DIDNT WORK! Very sad indeed. Here is a photo journey of a sad dirty tail.

Dirty unwashed tail. She got her tail bag off during the winter and it was too cold to wash it and put it back up. It was down for 3 months. This is a white and silver tail.



These were taken today. Its been ~ 1 week since its last washing. The tail had been washed twice with Dawn dish soap, moisturized and bagged each time.



To show contrast



After using the Goop imposter paste. Again, didnt use the Goop brand, but it is the same ingredients.



Contrast AFTER (looks the same)

Did you let it sit?? How long?

I've only used the Goop stuff once, but it was amazing on my pony's white tail. Sad to see it wasn't as successful for you.

Duren used a knock-off, which could be the problem. Yes, it may have the same ingredients, but not necessarily in the same portions, which can make a difference. A lot of times the original formula is protected by patents, so when knock-off brands are made, they can't use the exact same formula. So, they change a few minor things and then they can sell it. Unfortunately, those few minor changes can affect the way the product performs. This is the same reason why a lot of off brand foods don't taste quite as good as the name brand equivalent.

I let it sit about 10 minutes. I can't seem to find the real stuff around here. I'll keep looking.

If your local Wal-Mart doesn't have the brand name Goop, try your local auto parts store, like AutoZone or O'Reilly's. They will probably have it.
