Its never turned my horses tail yellow. I have a spray bottle with a 50/50 mix for manes and the tops of tails. Then I use straight bleach on the lower part of the tail. I always get compliments and asked how I keep my horses tail so clean and shiney.

Something everyone should keep in mind is that a horse's skin is much more sensitive than ours. Just because our skin may tolerate something, don't assume a horse's can. We can put iodine on uncut skin and it just feels wet. Put it on a horse and his hair will fall out where the iodine touched his skin.

Soak it in vinegar. I soak my grey horse's tail in it and it works. It will take a couple of times but and I always make sure I condition after. It makes him smell like a pickle too haha, but its worked for me.

Here's the best stuff I've ever found for getting a tail or other white areas back to white. WOW! Healing Tree Products, Inc (Grooming - Horse Shampoo Conditioner - Color Enhancer)

I use any whitening shampoo for horses, spray on WOW and let it dry. If it's not white enough, I wash and spray again and if necessary, I put fanci-full white minx | Walgreens, it will make everything all white again.

Every single one of my horses has a lot of white, I use a LOT of WOW and White Minx.

I use Dawn with bleach. You can also go to the dollar store and get the generic brand that works just as well.

Just use QuicSilver shampoo. Wet the hair well, and apply the shampoo. But do not lather it! Work it in well enough to get good coverage - the more purple you've got the better. Wait 10 minutes and then rinse it out all the way. Tah-Dah!

It works charms on my Lipizzan mare's hair. And it starts out yellow to brown-ish. It's gross...

Ecolicious makes something called "Blinded by the White" It works great to break through those stains, and you can leave it on wrapped in aluminum foil for extra hard stains. Loved it for my Pinto mare! I would be really hesitant to use bleach etc when I wouldn't put it on my own hair!

I have a "white" horse and no stranger to yellow stains and grubby tails I do use whitening shampoo and hot water (the temperature as hot as you can handle) but don;t use it on the tail itself just the lower part where there is mainly hair.

1. Soak the hair well and use ordinary soap bar - you may need to rub for awhile. Then rinse.

2.Now repeat the soap but this time after rubbing leave it in for about 5 mins. Then rinse.

3. Then take some whitening horse shampoo rub into hair well, tie up the tail and cover in plastic for about 15 mins. Then rinse and you will see the difference.

4. If the ends are still a bit yellow I suggest trimming them off to allow clean new hair to grow - shorter healthy and bright tail is better than long yellow and dull one

I would not suggest using any kind of conventional bleach - you wouldn't use it on your hair so why would you do that to your horse? It is potentially dangerous for your horses skin and breathing.

Good luck!
