Thank you all....She has a whole lot of white on her so I need to stay with a cheap solution and now that she is out in the pasture and those sunny days are coming I can't clip her...she sunburns! Her eyes,muzzle,and lower legs are burned where her hair is thin....I bought a fly mask so that is going to help her and I also bought her sunblock for kids..that way it is gentle.

I will try some dawn or tide and maybe some of that stuff that people use on cattle too.
I would stick with Dawn original...its easy on their skin...steer clear of using laundry detergent unles its just for spotting, with her being a paint (?) she'd probably got thin skin and the detergent might cause her to get irritated skin if you use it alot.

I SWEAR by Quic anything.... Black, silver, braid... All of it. Also, I use Vetrolin Shine. It isn't horribly expensive, and it detangles very nicly!

I have the exact same problem. I have paint with all white legs who is impossible sometimes. My trick is close clipping, vinegar when needed, and quicksilver. Caution with any bluing shampoo.. it will stain purple but if you scrub it until its white and foamy you can leave it in to take the place of vinegar.

Quicsilver is AWESOME. We used it on our fleabitten gray mare and on our dark bay gelding with a lot of white on his face and three white socks. Works SO well.

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.
Exactly. I use Orvus to... my horses get baths once a week generally and a tub will last me about 3 or 4 months (and I have 4 horses). If the stains are really tough... I will put some orvus in a cup and mix a little bleach with it. Keeps my appys butts nice and white.

I always used Vetrolin whitening shampoo. Worked miracles on my old Grey gelding that was solid white.
