well for the black, idk what to tell you. I'm going to try Quic Black this show season. For the white, I use Quic Silver shampoo and then to keep her clean I groom daily and use Vetrolin Shine and I spray that on a brush and brush her face to keep it clean and shiny. And also feeding a good vitiamen(if the vet gives the A-ok) will keep the coat shiny and healthy. We use Vet's Choice suplements

Focus more on keeping the white white! I use whitening shampoo and it keeps all of her shiny! As long as it's shiny, it's all good. Keep a sheet on him and it will keep your black from fading or sun bleaching.

Another thing for the white spots, especially on Paints (garrrr), is using Cowboy Magic in the can. Its a chalk like substance that coats the hair. Its safe, and does a real sharp job for those patterns!

To keep white spots white I found Quic Silver is a good shampoo, and for spot cleaning and touch ups just use rubbing alcohol. Get a clean cloth, put some rubbing alcohol on it, or directly on the horse, and just scrub at the dirt.

I do agree with the abopve post...but I will add that sun is not your friend!!! I keep my show horses in during the day and out at night....people thought that my bay paint was black and white..when my secret was not letting the sun bleach his coat. I would bring him in around 9 am and turn him out around 5 pm. This way your horse still gets hin vitimans from the sun without the overload. I would excersise him during the day too. On our extremely hot days here in the south I will usually excersise at about 7pm... for his white I swear by Clariol shimmer lights!! You can find this product at a sally's beauty supply. It is about $8/bottle but a little goes a long way! I will post a pic of this amazing product I can't believe that a horse world has not gotten a hold of this yet!

Hope this helps you!

For showing?
Spray paint for horses: Product Details

I have a blackish horse and use this:
Exhibitor Labs : Quic Black <-- I love this stuff

KV Pet & Equine / KV HealthLinks - Dog, Cat and Horse Supplies, Pet Meds and Nutritio <-- Has UV protection should prevent the black from bleaching out too much

Exhibitor Labs : Quic Silver <--- used this on my old cremello

Exhibitor Labs : Quic Screen <--- Also to prevent the black from bleaching out

Exhibitor Labs : Quic Color

Actually thinking about it, this will work on both the black and the white if you don't want to use two shampoos...
