Don't make this mistake in whitening a tail!!

So, I used MTG to encourage hair growth. It attracted SO much dirt. So I couldn't live with the oily dirt. I washed it then put mane and tail whitener on it. You know....the purple stuff that says let it set for 5 minutes, then wash it out. Well what it didn't instruct me to do was to protect her coat from her tail while it was setting. This is the result of the whitener coming into contact with her rear end. Live and learn!

Looks like she kind of peed out grape juice. Don't worry, it will be gone soon.

I was wondering how long it would take to go away since her winter coat is all out. And of course you know I want her to look good in the parade! Thanks. What......a month you think?

it should have washed out. What are the ingredients?
A good hair lighter that is total organic = lemon juice. Cut a lemon in half drag the hair through let the sun bleach it, rinse out the lemon juice. No chemical residue.

I'll try that. Works on lightening my hair so why not a horse?

What shampoo did you use? We've never had that issue.

If it makes you feel any better, I was so taken with the pretty tail that I didn't notice her bum at first

Imagining life without a horse is like imagining life without food, water and air.
