I use this Farnam: White 'N Brite Horse Shampoo it works really good on my red roan makes his tail and mane and feathers pretty white and bright (lol) even though they are naturally a creamy/off-white color. I also use vinegar on his tail sometimes..but not usually because I hate the smell of vinegar.

Don't laugh but I have used Tide laundry detergent on Saros tail when its been awhile between baths. I just stick her tail in a bucket of Tide and water, let it soak for as long a I can hold the bucket and rinse.

Does that work? I'm going to have to try that sometime... It gets my clothes clean so I imagine it would work well on my horses dirty tail.

Does she allow clippers on her legs (assuming those are where her stains are...)? If she does, then I would suggest washing her, then clipping her legs...you probably have alot of 'outer' hair staining, when in reality underneath is much cleaner...

Bright N' White, it's a blue goo that works wonders, but it is a little expensive if you have a horse with a lot of white.

Make sure to apply it to the stain dry though, it won't work nearly as well wet.

Same for manes and tails. If your horse has a tendency towards dry skin, Groomers GOOP has added moisturizers to condition while removing stains, costs a bit more of course.
I used to use Goop on my mostly white paint for the shows, works wonders!

Ive never used this before because ive never had to, but i know quite a few people that use Wisk laundry detergent for white spots...its usually cheaper than most of your whitening shampoos and they say it works ten time better!!!!

wow, i totally forgot about this thread I started!

Thank you all....She has a whole lot of white on her so I need to stay with a cheap solution and now that she is out in the pasture and those sunny days are coming I can't clip her...she sunburns! Her eyes,muzzle,and lower legs are burned where her hair is thin....I bought a fly mask so that is going to help her and I also bought her sunblock for kids..that way it is gentle.

I will try some dawn or tide and maybe some of that stuff that people use on cattle too.
