Getting the white bits white??!

Simba has his first show on Saturday (weather permitting) and his white patches are more brown than his brown patches

Can anybody offer me some tips on getting him sparkling?? I'm planning to bath him tomorrow, and then just tidy up any dirty bits Saturday morning before heading off to the show.

QuikSilver always works well for me.

If he doesnt have too much white (like just socks etc) then we sometimes use chalk in the uk lol! If he has lots, I've read adding a blue plastic bag to the water you use to wash him with helps. Random I know but I think it works!

White baby powder will help make the white seem brighter. After a bath wait until the horse is completely dry before applying the powder.

Thanks guys! Our show has been cancelled due to the weather :( Ireland would be a great place if it were under a giant umbrella!

Scrub the white bits with a nail brush, hand hot water and some Fairy Liquid. Rinse well until yoou can see the skin clean underneath.

Towel dry then rewash with a blue shampoo, working it well in and leave for a few minutes to allow the stain to dye the white hair slightly blue. Rinse well and towel dry.

This is the bit that turns white socks int ultra white socks.

Using Curash baby powder mix it to a soft paste with some warm water. Scrub well into the sock with a toothbrush. Then bandage over. I use white hand towels and white or blue bandages. Leave bandages on until just before going into the ring, remove bandages and brush any excess off.

This is my Clydesdale after the above

Some people I know use spray paint on their horses, but I use a green tea spray that you can buy and a mane & tail shampoo that is for white spots.
