Grass stains on a white horse

How do you get grass and mud stains off of a white horse?

i've never tried this, but WitchHazel (found in Shoprite and store like that) is said to remove grass and manure stains from white horses.

There are also hose products that say they can remove it. I forget the names though.

I have a grey horse,
it never stays clean.

anyway

last summer.
there was kind of an accident, the shampoo was in a tin that was just like the leather fat (oh well the thing you put on saddles), the shampoo at the yellow thing on the top
the other the red one.
Owner of the stable (was working there) had by accident when he was in hurry for show, (bathing and fixing saddle and make it shine) switch buttons on the top.
Of corse we took the tin with the yellow on top
and bathed the grey stallion out of it.
But it was SHINEY afterwards, and really really soft.
So yebb that works.

Cowboy Magic Green Spot Remover and the Wow Whitener spray worked the best on my cremello and I used I liked to use quiksilver or pretty much any kind of blueing shampoo for bathing.

Cowboy magic is good, and that BluRibbon stuff (I believe...once I see it I know what it is).
The BluRibbon (or whatever I'm thinking of) comes out purple but really helps.

Dawn dish washing soap. At one time i have over 3 greys. Whitening shampoo got too expensive. So, i heard about it, tried it. I find it works better then those whitening shampoo's you buy. Makes the coat feel and smell better too

I'm so glad I'm not the only one who uses dishwashing soap! I often get weird looks when I tell people that I use it... but yes, it is GREAT! So much cheaper and surprisingly does not dry out their skin! I never buy 'real' horse shampoo. Suave shampoo also works wonderfully.

Ok Ok i confess too lol. I use dishwashing liquid too! It does the job, plus its 1 fourth of the price of 'branded' shampoo!
