In the summer I use betadine scrub on my mares whites. It not only cleans their legs, but is will disenfect them. My usual ritual before a show is to scrub them with betadine, then the cowboy magic yellow out, then "spot" clean the really dirty spots (like knees) with the betadine again. After that I spray them with show sheen so the dirt will slip off if she gets dirty! Works well for me! The best thing is also to keep up on them, I clean my mares legs every ride in the summer, but then you have to be careful becuase they can dry out easily, so I sometimes uses human conditioner on them. Hope that helps. I don't have any real recondmentions for the winter other than to keep up on them and brush them with a soft curry often. You can also rub snow on them outside! The cold will not hurt their legs at all!
