whitening palomino mane
 
my palomino has a white mane but not a full white tail. its white at the top but gets into a yellowish-orange at the bottom. ive heard of bleaching it but i dont know if it will mess her tail up. does it? if it does is there any other way to get it white? I want it white because we are going to start her in halter classes in spring. any sugestions?

I used to use a laundry product called Blu-O on my grey's tail, there is also a hair product called magic silver white that does a good job.

Yeah blu-o is good like when you bath them but if you get to the shpw and you want to give them a quick touch up white chalk is awesome!!

Equi-tone whitening shampoo. Thats my favorite, it works the best and only takes a couple times to really see a huge difference (just make sure you read the directions because if you leave it on for more than 5 minutes it will turn the tail blue lol seriously). Also the day before a show wash the tail with equi-tone and then after you wash it out take some baking soda and run it through her tail and then after a few minutes wash it out.
Trust me your horse will have the whitest mane and tail in the show ring (just try not to blind the judges lol thats never good for your placings lol jk).
