I heard somewhere that white vinegar works, but I have never tried it. I also have a white horse who loves to get dirty. Has anyone ever tried the white vinegar. It seems to me like it would irritate their skin.

I read that witch hazel (found in ShopRite) is great at removing manure and grass stains on white horses. I haven't tried it out, but I would think it could work.

White vinegar doesn't irritate unless their skin is broken. A white vinegar rinse on your own hair removes the residue of soaps and shampoos and is reputed to be helpful with dandruff. I have a grey (now white) horse and I never thought of trying it, but I'm going to.

Unfortunately the vinegar does not help with satins on white horses :( someone did tell me to use Twinkle Toes (its white touch up for markings) and put it on a damp sponge, rub it n the stain and let dry. If nothing else works try Shapely's Show touch ups- comes in all colors

I would but he uses everything he can to rip them up. Nails, the fence, the barn anything he can rub up on them he drags it around the field with his teeth. Its just a huge waste of money (i've gone through about 4 of them) and I live in new jersey so pretty moderate weather.
i agree wit Vidaloca you could put a rug on him but if he rips the cotton ones you should try the rugs and they r like fly screen, made out of the same material as fly vails. We have horses that r always ripping there cotton rugs but these rugs they have lasted 2 yrs and they r still goin!! They r approx. $100 australian money but they do last!!
