Palomino tail cleaning??

New to the breed. How does one make a palomino tail blonde again? (Not that it is going to get done any time soon here in Minnesota).

Do what I do. Simply change the registration papers to buckskin.

Lol. Get some whitening shampoo, I used the stuff for dogs. There is also this stuff that blue and the name starts with a V. Can't remember the name but it works great too

Didn't mean to be flip. My palomino's tail is almost black and her mane isn't much better. Just going to have to wait until spring so I can give her a good bath. I use some of the jars of hand soap in the automotive section at wal mart and leave it in for a while before rinsing. It seems to work fairly well. Everyone has a favorite - do a search on this forum and you'll find lots of suggestions. Welcome to the club!!!

Lemonade has the dirtiest butt ever If it's super cold, I'll take a bottle of Miracle Groom and a towel to it. But usually I can get away with washing below the tail bone with warm water and a purple-toned shampoo. Then I put it up with either a tail bag or vet wrap. Hope that helps I'm still trying to figure it out!

Its sort of harsh on the hair, but you can use lemon juice , then the sun will help bleach it.
But don't forget to rinse it out after a while and put some conditioner on it.

I really like Orvus. I've had better luck with it than any of the whitening shampoos. If you want the tail to stay white in the winter I'd recommend washing it in a bucket then conditioning, braiding, and wrapping in vet wrap or tail bag.

Ok thanks. I was unsure if bleaching or peroxide was needed. I will try to wash it with a whitening shampoo once the spring mud dries. Provided we ever get Spring this year.

I just know that when I got the horse in Sept his mane 'n tail was snow white, and now the tail is a charcoal colour.

Charlie's allergic to cleanliness. So I'm well stocked up on Cowboy Magic. Its a miracle worker!

Well, I just washed my haffies mane/tail a few days ago. With the exception of few flax hairs at the very "top", both are snow white by nature, but looked flax by "other nature" (i.e., dirt). Her tail was dirtier than her mane. I used cowboy magic, although I thought tide a better choice. Due to the cooler weather, I didn't want to have to rinse excessively as one has to with tide . The cowboy magic failed to get all the dirt out of the tail. :( Tide never does.
