Ok so my poor buckskin mare's tail is all sun bleached, so her once nice dark black tail has orange streaks in it. I've tried the horse shampoos (Quick black?) that are supposed to make it darker but they haven't seemed to do very much. Someone mentioned to me to just get black hair dye and dye it with that BUUUUT I have some questions before I go doing that to my very LIGHT colored horsie!
1. How do I protect everything else from the hair dye? I don't want a drop of it to get on her butt or legs because they are so light...
2. How long do I really need to leave the dye in there? Do I honestly have to leave it in for the full 1/2 hour or whatever that they say to with human hair?
3. Are there any certain brands that work better than others, and is there anything I can put in her tail after that to avoid the sun bleaching in the first place next year?
