How do you wash stains out of white coats?

How do you do this? Just with a regular whitening shampoo? Thanks, and good night!

A magical product known as Quic Silver. Makes my white horses so very, very white. Even their nasty, stained legs.

Okay, so use it on any stains in their fur? Even their butt

I've had really good success with Orvus shampoo, but I'm one of the lucky ones with a "white" horse who is generally pretty neat.

Orvus paste shampoo was key for my mostly white Paints! Followed by Quicsilver whitening shampoo only on stubborn stains or yellowed tails. You can use Quicsilver everywhere, but it dries out the hair which leaves it dull.

Clipping the legs helps keep them cleaner during the spring/summer - shorter hair means less hair to get/show stains. But that does remove some natural protection, so while it's common practice with show horses, it's probably not a good idea for trail horses who ride through heavy brush nor in the winter where hair is needed for warmth.
