Quiksilver works great, but can get really expensive if you have to use it a LOT.

Since I have a mostly white horse who loves his green manure stains, I cheat. I order this:

Kelco Plum White Shampoo - 1 Gallon: The Shampoo Lady

Yes it's a dog shampoo but it is also marked on the bottle for horses, cats, ferrets etc.

It's expensive, yes, but for one gallon at $32.55 you need to remember that it dilutes 50:1. So in the long run it is VERY cost effective, and it works better than anything I have ever tried.

My ritual is this - bathe Claymore with the Plum White, really scrubbing and letting it soak in. Rinse well and dry - once dry I coat him down heavy with show sheen head to toe. They helps keep off the staining and most dirt will just brush right off, for a little while at least. He still tends to get bathed once a month in the summer months. But this helps the "white periods" last as long as possible!

I used to have a palomino with a bright white mane and tail (at least until it became stained with pee and clay any anything else he could roll in) and the only thing I found that beat the stains besides Goop was a product called Horse Wash. <--- here's a link to a page all about it. It's fantastic stuff! Hope this helps. :]

I love the plum white. You CAN use it straight, but I never would - why use 1 gallon when you can use 1 bottle to make 50 gallons? I don't find the effectiveness any less when it is diluted - it is a concentrate, so it is made to be diluted. I love all of Kelco's shampoos though. I also use their "Filthy Animal" on my dogs and all my other colored horses. It smells amazing.
