For her tail, use electrical tape. It sticks to the tail, but it's easy to take out. Just tape it up and you should be fine.

As for her color I have a Cremello horse that was super dirty and I got him spotless.

Take an old rag and soak it in peroxide and rub it on stains like poop stains and grass stains, it gets them out pretty well. You may need to use some muscle. Vinegar works too but I don't like the smell. I also usually hose my horse down after using peroxide.

I then use a whitening shampoo designed for horses. I put some in a bucket then dilute it with water. I then sponge it on my horses, let it sit for a little bit then rinse it off. Usually I do this 4 times.

I use whichever dish soap I have handy (brighter colors work better). My boy is very white and always on pasture. I wet him down really good, then hook up the curry with hose attachment, dump some soap on him and work my way from one end to the other with the hose on full blast. Works wonders and I can make him look like this in about 20 minutes.

Curry w/ horse attachment (best couple dollars I ever spent!):

Challenge me, Dare me, or even defy me. But do NOT underestimate me...
For on the back of my horse nothing is impossible!
