Favorite bathing products? Shampoos conditioners?

I need to buy some shampoo and conditioner so I thought I'd get opinions!
I'm looking for an overall shampoo as well as a whitening shampoo for his nasty white legs. :)

I'm still on the hunt for a good shampoo so no help there but for conditioner I use this stuff called Vitamin Conditioner. I get it at my local BIG lots. I love it it's only $2 and it makes her hair so soft and strong!

Hands down QuikCleanse. It can be a little expensive but the bottle lasts forever, even though you can use it pretty much everyday without washing away vital oils in the coat. It's so easy to use and just gives awesome shine and softness to your horses coat. Works great on mane and tails too!

ETA: the first link I copy and paste was nonsense, and I can't make another work. Ive seen it on most of the online supply site though. It's a bottle that you attach to your hose.

I love Orvus shampoo. Comes in a big container and lasts forever.

My friend that raises paints swears by Oxy-clean. Just a spoonful in your soapy water. She has VERY white horses. I used it to soak my gray mares manure stained tail & it worked great!

i love EQ Solutions and/or Ez All. I just hose it on and rinse off. It does not strip the oils out of their coats. I have used it everyday and not had a problem.

I love ezAll. It's a great product for bathing. You just hose it on, wait a few minutes, then hose it off. To get the really bad stains out, I use a small amount of the concentrate on my palomino's white mane, tail and leg markings. I'm using Oster's whitener right now.

I'm a huge fan of johnstones baby shampoo! It sounds insane but its brilliant for coat and skin. I have to be very careful with my tb mares coat, and especially her skin. It washes out to leave the loveliest shine on her and gently removes the grim. I then let horse dry of and polish with canter shine and a polishing brush.

Wow! I love all these ideas! I happen to have oxy clean on hand! I'm going to try it on his white spots. I'll pick up that vitamin conditioner! I've been using ethnic hair products lately. It helps but at the moment I'm using mtg as a tail conditioner.. I was debating if I could use like t-gel medicated shampoo on his dock..it's dandruffy but as long as I keep mtf on it he doesn't rub! He has a little bald spot on his dock which drives me CRAZY! He has a brown tail and if he would stop running his butt he would have a beautiful little cape of white..butthead. :)
I've also thought about senior shampoo. Like the purple shampoo older ladies get to make their hair silver. But I'll try the oxy clean first :)
