Tail Color . . . .

Okay so I have a red roan (the one in my user picture) his mane is very light creamy yellow (w/ white highlights) and his tail is more like a brownish color , but the protected center of it is pure white to the same creamy yellowish color of his mane. Is it possible that his tail is just stained? Is there anything I cam do to tell without damaging his tail. The only reason I ask is because I love the brilliant color of his mane and I wish his tail matched, cause he has 4 high socks and a huge blaze with a cream colored mane . . . . If his tail matched that would be stunning!

I'm sure its just stained. They make whitening stuff for horses that you can use. I can't give you a name because I've never used it
I usually just wash my Saro's tail like the rest of her body and the staining comes out pretty good. I've heard Tide laundry soap works good, I've been going to try it but haven't yet. I would think you would have to use some heavy moisturizer after a tide bath though

Whisk liquid laundry detergent works great for light colored horses (or light manes and tails)! Just be sure to condition afterwards

Whisk! Thank you, I thought it was Tide but wasn't sure

Haha no problem. Also I forgot to mention, if you would prefer "horsey soap" there are many to try: Quic Silver, Wite N Brite, Super Poo, the list goes on check your local tack store. Hopefully somthing works for you! :)
