also for getting stains off white marks im not sure what it is but its this blue stuff you put on when bathing and it takes the stains right out... just dont leave it in too long or it will make them turn blue

If you spray the bottom of your horses hooves with cooking spray when the snow is really clumpy it keeps snowballs from building up real bad. Even if they do get snow or ice built up under their hoof, it pops right off. :] It works great. Also spray Mane and Tail conditioner on your horses legs before a show, it makes their legs extremely reflective and it makes their muscles obvious. To encourage hair growth without paying for MTG mix a container of 1/3apple cider vinegar (or regular vinegar except it may dry out skin if you don't supplement feed with veggie oil), 1/3water,1/3Listerine(blue) and a squirt of baby oil. Mix it in a spray bottle and put it on where there is little/no hair and it will help it grow back.

Thats all I can think of.

-You can use baby diapers to clean white horses/spots.
-Any type of oil will get burs out
-nail polish remover DOES NOT work on getting black hoof polish off..Hairspray DOES work ha ha ha
-baking soda and water mixed together in a paste whitens tails

Thats all I can think of for now....

It is not just a horse,
It is the one thing that keeps me from being just a girl
