White N' Bright or Wonder Blue shampoo. I use it on Jester 'caus ehe has the same problem and it really makes his white spots pop out from the sorrel. Really bright! :)

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

Cowboy Magic has a spot spray that is awesome.

I almost bought the green stain remover shampoo last night thinking it might help but I waited on it since I bought a new ESP saddle pad for my horse and tetnus which I have to give...whoo...but I am going to keep these in mind.

I used to have a snow white mare and I SWEAR by a product called Orvus. Years ago I was best friends with a dairy farmer's son who showed cows nationally in Canada and in Madison, Wisconsin. Cows LOVE to lay in their pee and everything, so one day on a whim I asked him what they used to clean them.
Orvus is GREAT and it works. I use about a tablespoon (I have an old measuring spoon in the bucket) for each of my horses socks and his blaze. All you do is rub it on with a brush, rinse it off. It'll be so white it'll blind you!
I bought the bucket, which I believe to be 8 pounds, for around $30.. four years ago.. I think I still have almost 3/4 of it left.
I know one bucket used to do about a eighteen Holstein dairy cows haha.
As for Cowboy Magic, I tried every product to whiten in their line and was thoroughly unimpressed with them all. Orvus gets my horse so shiny, I contemplate washing myself with it.

White GOOP. Rub it onto the stains while they're dry, wait about five minutes, add whatever shampoo, lather and rinse.

Make sure to apply it to the stain dry though, it won't work nearly as well wet.

Same for manes and tails. If your horse has a tendency towards dry skin, Groomers GOOP has added moisturizers to condition while removing stains, costs a bit more of course.

Jeffer's now has their own line of shampoos and stuff for multiple colors and skin problems. Very decent prices too! I just bought a big bottle of the "Whitening Blue" shampoo for only around 6 bucks! I used it on my palomino paint and it made him really white and really shiny. It smells good too To make them really white also use a few squirts of Mrs. Stewart's Blueing to brighten them up. Don't use too much though because it is a "blueing" so it will turn them blue !

One thing I've learned working with horses: You can FORCE a horse to do something on a tight rein and he might do what you ask or you can TEACH a horse to do something on a loose rein and he will do it willingly with his heart.

Vetrolin Green Spot Out - Dover Saddlery.

It's not a shampoo, but I swear by this stuff. I swear its gotta be magic or something. We use it on the morning of shows to get any stains out of the coat. All you do is spray it on, wipe it off, and you're good to go. If I could endorse any product, I would endorse this stuff! =)

To see the wind's power, the rain's cleansing, and the sun's radiant life, one need only to look at the horse.

Orvus is a great old time product. Love it.

I have also had great luck with Quicksilver or the like. Heck, even shampoos for older grey haired humans work fine. Just buy something with bluing in it.

But, as has been said, stains do not wash out. Yellow spots really do not wash out. Clipping is really the only way to get rid of them.
