How to keep a grey gelding clean?

My horse, Ace, is a grey gelding, but looks white at times. BUT that's WHEN HE'S CLEAN! He likes to roll and lay in his own poop and and never wants to stay clean for five seconds. So how do I keep him clean?

I'm in the same boat as you. I have a white leopard appaloosa gelding (he doesn't have many spots though)
He LOVES the dirt/mud/poop, and it's rare when he stays clean over night.
To be honest, I don't really mind him being dirty. I don't show so I don't fret everytime he's dirty.
You could buy a blanket and have him wear it all the time. But just be careful with the weather and the weight of the blanket.

Well, Misty is white :roll: I find a tail wash once a week or atleast every other week helps a lot! Dang good grooming, lil bit of showsheen if you are going to go somewhere, rugs, and more grooming I guess plaiting mane might help? Oh and rub with a baby wipe / damp cloth

If you figure out how to keep a grey horse clean... Let me know... I have 2 that are NEVER clean.

I don't fuss too much but then I don't show either. If its not the mud then it's poop, if its not poop its grass stains, if it's not grass stains its something else.:roll:

I think the only way to keep a gray horse clean is to trade it in for a bay! Haha just kidding. But if you find the magic cure-all, I'm all ears!!!!!!!!!! At this point, I just ignore the stains, brush him to get the muddy parts off, and then give him a really good bath (or twenty...jk) before a show.

I don't think it's possible at all. I have mostly white paint - she's all dirty all the time. You can put on a blanket, but I personally don't like doing that (unless it's very cold).
