What to do with faded tail

I am going to show my Pinto filly in halter this spring.

She is 2 years old and a smokey black tobiano. Her tail is solid black but the ends are a orangey brown.

Is there any product I can use to darken the ends? Her tail is currently baged and MTG applied weekly.

She is kept inside during daylight and turned out at night. Her weanling and yearling summers her coat did not fade, she stays very close to black.

You can dye it, or if you want it black for just special occasions for her to look nice, then the Shapleys show touch up spray, does a good job for spot on color. Just make sure you wash it out after the occasion, because it's not exactly the most moisturizing thing to leave on.

I use the Shapleys for show days on my bay.

I dye my mare's tail once a year because she has the same problem. I get the slightly gentler stuff like Feria semi permanent though and I don't leave it on as long as for human hair. Works really well!

I know several people who dye their horses tails with good results. Anything that isn't too harsh ought to work.

Thanks everyone! I have a game plan now for her tail.

I have so many stories about being up at 4am, dying a gazillion horses tails, because the girls always come whining to me the day of because apparantly I do a good job. Little do they know I only get that much practice on my own hair :'D

I am SOOO excited for this show season. I didn't show her last year for several reasons, but this year we have nothing in our way (so far).

She is out of my Pinto mare and a local AQHA stud. They produced an outstanding baby. We are very pleased with her and can't wait to get her in the show ring.

She looks like a buffalo right now, which is how she got the nickname Buffalo Bree
