for white horse tails we just mix some bleach in a bucket of water and just keep scrubbing, when you think it's good just rinse it out REALLY well. We did this to my 23y/o grey Arabians tail for a small schooling show (his tail was orange o.O) and it was soooo pretty and white we had like 10 people ask how we got it so white lol. It has been about a month since that show and it is STILL realy white :)

Obviously don't use that on any color tail other than white, I would hate to see what it would do to it :P

I would say that bleaching does sound like a good idea to whiten tails, but if you do it be careful not to get it on their skin or tailbone. For anyone who's ever bleached their own head, it can burn!

sure- the mouthwash is to help prevent others from chewing on the tail...
