Have you tried letting the whitening shampoos sit in the hair for a few minutes? That usually makes quite the difference.

I hear baby powder works well. =]

I agree...let the Quic Silver sit for a bit (but not too long or it will turn her tail purple!) it a few times in a row (scrub, let sit, rinse, repeat) can try using a wash cloth with the shampoo..sometimes it helps get out some tough spots.

Good luck!

Regular old laundry blueing always worked for me

I use Healthy Haircare Silverado whitening shampoo, we leave it in about 10-15 minutes after scrubbing it for a few and it turns the nastiest yellow tails bright white. Sometimes you may have to do it 2-3 times in a row, but this is the best way we have found. Never had a problem with it turning anything purple unless it was not rinsed out all the way.

My white mare also had crazy pee stains in her tail and her tail went from

To this:

After I let the quic silver sit in it for 15 minutes. O.o But it worked and she was not purple! =)

^^^ I dunno wallaby, she looks very purple to me in your signature!!

I don't know much about getting out stains because I've never owned a white horse, or grey.... (but I may have to learn soon because we may be getting a grey mare to race ) anywho, a woman who has a white horse at the track has no problem using dish soap. Especially there is one that has a "power of oxyclean" in it.

Regular baths! I have a grey horse too. Make sure you wash her legs and tail once a week at least and you won't have as much of a problem when preparing for a show. That's what I do. And then also what everyone else has said. Leave in the whitening shampoo for awhile. :)
