    I love Vetrolin products. They have a White N Briteshampoo. I haven't tried it but their Shine spray is my FAV for keeping the mane and tail tangle free all years.

    Here is there White N Brite. <---- My Fav product in my grooming box.

    I have had good luck with soaking their tails in a bucket of warm vinegar water before shampooing, helps lift the stains. I just dunk it in and swirl it around and let it set for a few minutes (or while I shampoo the rest of them in warmer weather). I agree that orvus is a good shampoo (and lasts FOREVER because you only need a little). You could also try a granny shampoo, bright purple stuff for gray/white hair. Jhirmack Silver Brightening Shampoo worked really well for me in the past.

    i like to take some cowboy magic's rosewater shampoo, and add baking soda to make a paste. I carefully comb it into the tail, wait 5 or 10 minutes (depending on how bad the tail is), then rinse with distilled vinegar. Then I wash again with the rosewater shampoo, rinse with water, then condition. This has helped bring my horse's green/brown tail back to a nearly platinum color.

    To help keep the tail clean, I will braid it, tie it up in half with a bit of twine, and wrap with vet wrap. In the summer, I make sure to coat him pretty well with fly spray.

    Hope this helps!
