Please just be very careful! I'd hate for your horse to be in pain.

I guarantee if he was in pain that he wouldn't have stood like a statue for the whole process.

I did my guys mane a couple of years ago when it was really unbleached, and it worked like a charm. Like the OP said, there really is no need to get it all down in the roots like you would with people, and he looked a million percent better. I did not do my guys tail, since it is silver. I would love to lighten it a bit, but have been warned about that. Much more difficult. I have not had to do it since, since he is not out during the day in summer.

A friend of mine does her palomino to get the yellow out. Just keep in mind though that in some show circuits, it's illegal to dye the mane or tail...

Sorry, I wasn't trying to be rude either. Just stating that, in the case with my horse, he was not in pain.

Thanks everyone! I think the coloring suits him well.
