I don't like using human products on my animals, horses included... You can get Mane and Tail products from wally, as well.

We used Suave for years because there were so many smells and a good proce, but on my horse that had white areas I used dog shampoo. The dog whitening shampoos are decently priced, and I could wash my Great Dane in it too. :) It worked really well for my horse.

Don't use Herbal essences though, it makes your horse smell really bad. Something in the make-up of it reacts badly with horse's skin. VO5 and Suave work great. My favorite though is VO5.

I'm glad I know that one...lol. I would hat e to have to re- wash because the shampoo made them stink. I have had certain dog shampoos that did that to my old black lab.

Yup, I use human shampoo all the time for my mare (being gray, she gets lots of baths, and human shampoo is easier on the wallet).

Just make sure you rinse really well. Some human shampoo's irritate some horse's skin.
