Hi everyone! I'm new here.
I have a Haflinger with a looooong, thick white mane and tail. This week, I washed his mane and tail, using "Goop" (an automotive hand cleaner). It actually worked! I'm most excited because a tub of Goop costs like $1.50 at Walmart.
What I did was first got the hair wet, then rubbed Goop into it, waited a few minutes, then washed with normal shampoo and conditioner. It was awesome! I really wanted to share my new find with the world
Then I patiently waited for his tail to dry, braided it and stuck in in a brand new tail bag.
The next morning, I went out and...it was gone. Braid was out. Sigh. I guess I'll just be doing lots of washing...
Ooh, thanks for this. I'm looking for a cleaner for my mare's white tail. I tried using just regular shampoo but it did nothing to get our the really old urine stains. Is Goop known to be safe? What about whitening her fur on her body?
Cool! I am always looking for tips since I own two mostly-white pintos.
Does the Goop bother their skin at all? Thank GOD both pintos have all black tails, although one has an all white mane (black forelock, very cool) but the hardest part to keep clean on him is the gaskins and hocks. Will the stuff bother his skin if I use it there?
