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!)...do it a few times in a row (scrub, let sit, rinse, repeat)...also...you can try using a wash cloth with the shampoo..sometimes it helps get out some tough spots.

Good luck!

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.

^^^ 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. :)
