Dirty Yellow stained dapple grey!!

Sup fellas and lassies

My mare is dapple grey and she LOVES a roll in the round yard. The problem is, is that the sand in the yard is that yellowy stuff like tradies use. I can't change the sand she rolls in but I was wondering how can I get her truly clean?

Also whenever she is in season (i swear it is all the time) She rubs her bum against the stable walls and destroys her tail and puts cuts on her bum just around the vulva area! How can I get her tail to grow back?! And maybe stop her from rubbing :) thanks

The best way that I have found to get stains out, is just thorough daily grooming, but I don't have running water at my barn, so I've had to just groom through it. I'm sure that someone on here will have brilliant ideas of how to get the yellowing out of her coat.

As for the rubbing when she is in season, she must be itchy. I've seen a scratching mat that can be hung on a stall wall or wrapped around a post in the pasture. It is supposed to give the horses a safe place to rub, with out the cuts, scraped, and pulled hair. I was it in one of my catalogs, but can't for the life of me find that catalog right now. You could also try washing her rear end to remove the discharge caused by her heat cycle. If she's not itchy, she shouldn't rub her tail out. As for re-growing it, just keep it well conditioned and protected, either by braiding or whatever method you prefer.

Good luck with her tail and the stains.

Get this stuff called goop. I use it on my geldings white tush that he likes to lay in mud and I swear just soak it. He always gets a yellow/brown spot in winter, one goop bath and he's sparkling white. You find it in the automotive section as its a well known mechanics cleaner, also used with children so it's safe.

Well, for the tail itching, she could have pinworms because they lay their eggs under the horses dock and it makes them really itchy.. Worm her with a pyrantel worming paste such as Panacur or Strongid P. Even if you have done fecal egg tests, pinworms and bots often don't show up in them even if the horse is infected, so, a horse should be wormed against both of those at least once year.

You can make your own scratching mat using cheapy indoor outdoor carpet. It works like a charm and keeps hair breakage to a minimum.

ETA: Why is she itchy so much? Rascal was at one point when I first got him. Worms ewwwwww! See if you can find the underlying problem. My friends rescue mare had this problem when in season. It turned out she had a really bad infection that flared when/because of coming in season. Weird huh?

couldn't agree more. Any time I've bought or adopted a horse with a scratched out tail I've wormed with something that gets pin worms and the problem has been solved. I think that is usually the underlying cause. Maybe she is more aware of her nether-regions when she is in heat and scratches more then but I 'll almost guarantee you that she probably has pin worms.

As far as getting a light colored horse white you need to buy a whitening shampoo. They are special shampoos formulated with something that looks dark blue in the bottle. It will make your guy blindingly white. It has something for brightening the white, I don't know how it works but it really does. It works WAY better than regular shampoo which wont get out whatever is staining the coat yellow.....

You have to be careful with a blueing shampoo, if you leave it on too long. It will leave a blue stain. Follow the directions, very carefully. If you don't want to pay the price for the horse version, you can go to where ever you get your own shampoo, and get it as well. They make it for little old ladies, who want their silver or white hair to really shine.
