    Be sure to have a brush handy, brush her down every day after or during the time you feed her. If you ever need to keep her real clean we use Quick Sliver it is a shampoo that cleans the white. Other wise just brush her and give her bath often, this will help the two of you become great friends.

    Thank you for that information :) After she was all settled into her stall last night I went ahead and brushed her down. I already found a few of her 'spots' with the brush tehehe. :3

    Hahahahaa - sorry, I didn't even read the posts. I read your title and immediately thought of Smokey and the Bandit 2? Or was it 3? With Dom Deluise and the elephant.

    Hang your paint (using two straps around the front/back of the belly) to hang him/her from the barn rafters so his hooves don't touch the floor.

    That will keep him from becoming a mud-pony.

    Heeheehee.

    Otherwise, I suggest you invest in warm water and sudsey soap. All the paints I have been around love to cover their white with as much mud as possible.

    Maybe they want to be solid?

    LMFAO. You're great XD Though I don't think Dixie Doo would appreciate your suggestion of being hung from the ceiling like a chandelier.

    Hi

    I have a Tobiano with quite a bit of white but I don't really have much advise for you. He seams to stay pretty clean on his own even when I turn him out in the pasture. The one thing I use once and a while is powdered corn starch. Just rub it into the white parts leave it in for a day and then brush them well! This is perfectly healthy and works very well! This works amazingly well on mains and tails too!!! Post a photo of your new best friend!!

    Thanks for the advice!

    You can find photos of her here, Pictures of Dixie on the second page. I will be adding more this afternoon that I took on Sunday and Monday with her I even have a video of her after she was not pleased to be put back into her stall. :P

    I normally just let mine stay dirty and bathe her only before a show. It's not worth the effort it takes to keep her white all the time!

    Also, Quic Silver shampoo is a miracle worker.

    That's what I was thinking lol. But once in a while I would like to gussy her up for pictures and when friends come to visit lol.

    I will also have to check that product out too :)
