Please don't reply with anything negative!! That is why I am asking! Is it cruel in any way to highlight a horse's mane or tail? It's a trail horse that my husband has. He's a sorrel TWH and I'd like to lighten his mane and tail to look flaxen. Well, maybe not quite so drastic. We don't show him or anything....I just thought it'd be pretty....IF it won't burn it up or dry it out. I see all this sparkle stuff people put on horses, and I wondered if anyone has tried bleaching?
