Grass Stains

My champagne colored TW mare has been rolling in the grass, so now she has terrible grass stains on her beautiful light coat. Any ideas on how to get them off?
Thanks!

Cowboy Magic grass stain remover works really good. Sometimes Cowboy Magic hair detangler and shine for horses or human may also work nicely.

Go to the drugstore and get the green rubbing alcohol its very cheap and works like a charm on grass and manure stains. I don't know why just the green and not the regular . But it works and at a buck a bottle ya can't beat the price

Unless you're going to show the horse, don't bother. Just do your regular wash whenever it is.

I use a spiteful of whitening washing powder in a bucket of warm soapy water. Apply some of the soapy suds on and scrub in with a body brush. Use a massage brush to rub right in and then rinse. If you're going to a show and your horse has small patches of discolouration use chalk dust, it works like a dream and is all natural too.

I find that the blue Dawn dishsoap works on getting stubborn grass and mud stains out of clothing. It's approved for animals and it might work.

I just purchased Miracle Groom bath in a bottle. Its basically like a spray on shampoo that doesn't need to be rinsed out. You just spray it on and brush over the stain. It is AMAZING! Plus it makes your horse smell like sugar cookies! Lol it is great for the winter when you can't bathe

Thanks!
I had a paint/saddlebred gelding that would get horrid stains...urine, grass, anything he could find) and it used to drive me nuts. Come bathing time I used Mr. Clean Magic Erasers and they worked wonders and Dawn dish soap but only the blue kind, other colors can irritate their skin. As for daily I tried to deep groom him at least 4 times a week and he was usually very, very easy to manage.
I worked for a big trainer and also a big Paint breeding farm and they too used Dawn dish soap and also Tide with Bleach, the Tide worked well for them but I couldn't do that to my boy.
Woolite (laundry) for delicates work well also
