Make her shine

So my palomino Buttercup. I was wondering if there was something out there that would make her really shine? Her mane is a very light blonde, and was wondering if there was like a whitening shampoo that works real well? She is in my avatar. Thanks

There are some color enhancing supplements that work pretty well. Black as Knight is one used on dark horses. It's made by Cheval International, and they make one for golden horses too, but the name escapes me. You could also try a general coat or hoof supplement, like Nu Image (just an example that I have experience with--there are a lot of them on the market). You could also use rice bran, rice bran oil, wheat germ oil, flax seed, etc.

There are a lot of whitening shampoos on the market, as well. If you go to any major equine retailer on the internet you can find a bunch.

Valley Vet is my favorite site, but there are many others. Dover Saddlery, Smith Brothers, and State Line Tack are three off the top of my head. And don't overlook the importance of grooming in getting that shine!

Gold as Sun is the Cheval brand supplement for palominos. A shiny horse is a healthy horse. Make sure your horse is on a well balanced diet and is groomed daily with lots of currying. As for whitening shampoos, I personally like quick silver and show bright, but most blue shampoos are pretty similar. The soap I think works the best though is Ivory soap, its 4 bucks at the grocery store haha. Its a dish soap do I dilute it a lot, but it is the best at removing stains. And the best thing for getting yellow out of a tail...vinnegar. Hands down. Soak it in some vinnegar, rinse it, and condition it. After a couple of times there will be no yellow.

You can really make her shiney by using some show sheen and feeding her a well balanced diet.

Ps- How do I post a new thread?

Thank you everyone for your input. She is on a very good diet, mainly I am wanting to get rid of the stains. I will try the vinnegar and the Gold as Sun as well. Thanks!
