Plenty of good advice already on here, but one thing I can say is my white appaloosa gelding lives for the mud and dirt, and he is famous for turning himself into a wannabe palomino!! Anyhow, I find keeping him in a sandy paddock works wonders versus a regular dry lot. The sand brushes off a lot easier and tends not to stain his coat, as for the manure and urine stains the others have already addressed that.

My horse is all white. He has a brown head. Black tail. White mane that's turning yellow..

Ive never owned a white horse before. I did own a flea bitten grey horse though. I remember using blueing shampoo for him. That's all I remember.

My horse is the only white pain horse at the barn. There are 3 palominos. 1 cream color pony. 1 dapple grey horse. The other horses are bay,black,and chestnut.

Thanks.
Oh my gosh I totally forgot.
I used Silverado spray on a white Grand Prix horse that I was riding and all his stains came out!

This is what I do that works every time. Fill up a squirt bottle with water, and add a few drops of quick silver shampoo. It's amazing -- all you do it spray some on and wipe away the stain with a towel or rag. You don't need to wash it off because it's already really watered down. It works like magic and is great when you need remove a stubborn stain quickly.

For quick spot treatments and what not, cowboy magic works like a charm

How do you is the concentrated kind? Because I just have a small bottle that's premixed.

Cowboy magic also has a really good spray that you can use on show day after they've decided to sleep on a pile of poop and have a nasty yellow spot. Spray it on and use a rag. Also the spray paint (for horses) is a helper but you have to use pepe to make it shine.

I like the purple shampoo and the cowboy magic. Cowboy magic also has this small bottle of yellow out I think it's called that helps get that tail back to white. But like everyone said... lots of baths and a fly sheet works best.

Don't use bleach... (sorry for the double post)... someone told me to mix clorox in water and soak the tail in a bucket... doesn't works - brings out the yellow.

This is correct.


I am a hairdresser, so any time you bleach hair, even hair with no color pigment, it will turn yellow.
