Cleaning a stained tail.
I came across a tip that you can use Goop (the hand cleaner) to clean up a yellow tail. I tried it today on my boy, and it actually WORKED! I have tried whitening shampoos, etc. and never gotten the same results as this. Apply the paste to a dry tail, let stand 5 minutes, add a little water and work into a later then let stand another 10 minutes then rinse! It's made for hands, so I feel safe using it, and didn't apply it on the tailbone...just the hair that is below that. I will be doing this again in a week to get the tail just a bit more white, but the results were amazing so far. Oh, I also applied an entire bottle of leave on conditioner to the tail after rinsing out the goop to make sure not to have it dry out. Sorry I didn't have my camera with me :-|

Wish you had pictures! I may have to try that.

That is an awesome tip!! I bet it works for manes, too? My gelding has a spot that he rubs when he puts his head through the bars of his stall and his mane is gray there, instead of white like it should be.

I bet it WOULD work on mane too...just too cold still for me to try that yet. I can hardly wait till the first Saturday in May to give my boy a proper bath, lol.

That does sound like a good idea. Do wish you had some pics of before and after though. It will be a while before I can try it though, too muddy here and no running water, just a creek and a pond. One of these days I'll have my horses at home, and hopefully it will be soon!

I was doing some research on finding larger tubs of Goop online and came across a link for GROOMER'S Goop! It seems that they sell the stuff for people with show cats/dogs to clean stained paws, tear stains, etc. No wonder it worked so good on my boy's tial! AND now I definitely know it is safe to use on him. Going out to the auto supply store today to get another contianer and will be sure to take some before and after pics when I do another treatment when the weather warms up. I want his tail REALLY white, lol.

You can also check for Goop at places like Walmart and shops with an RV/auto/camping stuff.

This stuff works AWESOME! I got three jars of it from walmart for about a dollare a jar. Used it on a dirty percheron/paint colt. He had only a medicine hat for color, the rest was white. Slap it on, leave it for about 10min (thats what I gave it) and then rinse with a normal shampoo. works wonders! THe dirt and stains literally lifted right off with the water. I use a mixture of goop, and blueing to help with the stains on the two paint mares I take care of. Ill have before and after pics as soon as the weather gets nice. I might still have some of the colt somewhere...

Works great on white legs too! I finally found a HUGE container of it at Wal Mart.
