My first reaction to the title of this post was ... "bah!" Haha, I am sorry, I'm not trying to be mean, but I've had experience in the past with grey horses and trying to keep them clean .... Haha. It is quite a task sometimes. I'm not really sure that there is some magical answer. Basically what everyone else suggested...

I have a grey horse but he looks white alot but yeah it is so hard to keep him clean but I use this stuff called Wow stain remover. It's for if you are in a rush it takes out manure stains, grass stains, and will bring caked on mud up to the surface. Then I also use avacado oil stain lifter that works too.

that was my reaction as well
Actually, having leased/owned 3 grey horses, it has come to my attention that you can only keep them clean if they WANT to stay clean ;)

I think its impossible to keep a gray clean! Haha. But if you blanketed him the blankets would get dirty instead of the horse.

Buy a very prissy gray horse that doesn't like to get dirty, but then you can't get them out of their stall if its muddy! All joking aside, I use Silverado Silver Shampoo, Cowboy Magic Green Spot remover, and Healthy Haircare Coat Gloss, It doesn't dry the coats like Show Sheen. I show most weekends so trying to keep a light colored horse stain free is trying.

Hi,
I have a skewbald and she seems to keep her white bitsclean she's a bit of a tart though. Lol.
If its hot you can use a summer dust sheet, just means you ll have to wash the rug.
Our fiald is muddy and wet at the minute so the horses are caked in it on their legs and belly and then you look under their rugs and they gleam.

I have 2 greys, and another 2 that are greying out, then another 2 horses that are tri-coloured and piebald, luckily Chase is bay, but she still manages to get muddy, but is easier to clean.

I promised myself I'd never have any grey horses or coloured horses and I end up with 4 greys and 2 coloureds, rofl.

The only way they are keeping clean at the moment is by being rugged, haha. I hate it when they are nice and clean and then when you decide to go for a ride, they have the biggest poo patch on their side.

This is my andalusian brood mare, Fenda. And this is how muddy she get's.



She's not in that good of condition here, she was still putting on weight from where we got her.


Also known as NiNo on other forums.
