You call it LATE! My paint is mid of September! Lol!
I noticed that too that she's generally more dirty than my sorrel qh. Although some days when it's very windy she's much cleaner. I think in summer those white ones are more attractive for flies, so that can be one of the reasons. And yes, fly sheet doesn't help at all - I tried that.
So just keep brushing her every day.
