Leave it on for 5-10 minutes, and rinse it off. I'm doing this about once every 5-6 days and it's already starting to make an improvement, although I think it generally takes 2-3 months to clear completely...
I'd just worry about it staining Rodeo O_o might want to try some under this belly or something first, if you're going to be scrubbing any white areas. All of the OTTBs are bay, brown, or black, so we didn't have to worry about it.
And I'm sure you already know this, but just a friendly reminder to keep everything STERILE! Don't want to get rid of it mostly, then accidently give the bacteria back to him on a brush or a rag!
Thanks for the tip!! Ill have to give that a try if this medicated shampoo doest work. Sadly,he really doesnt have too much white. He has the white stocking, a few spots on each side of his neck, and one on each side of his barrel, and then of course he has the sock, and funky strip going up his one rear leg.
But yes.....right after it started, I sterilized everything of mine!! I also am not using the barn brushes, they are open for anyone to use, they sterilize them from what I have been told, but I just have a thing about using other brushes on my horse. Thanks again!!
