    I have never heard of mouth wash for stains!!! I think ill try that since Taz is a creamy white....he has grass stains from rollin

    I have noticed that wiping fly spray on him with a sponge, since he wont let me anywhere near him with a spray bottle!!, the spray covers more areas better and seems to repel longer...especially on his nose and his nono areas!

    I havent seen it mentioned, after we caosted sunscreen on our horses nose we applied a light coat of vasaline nad cream ..kept the grassmuicnhing from rubbing off the sunscreen coat and we havent had any sunburned noses on the horses we did this on...

    We don't put our horses in the barn so they are ion pasture 24/7

    Cowboy Magic Shine and Detangler. Greatest detangler ever invented. There's an added bonus: you can use it on your own hair.

    Oh and if you get one of those hard bristled brushes with the handle (I think they're for scrubbing pots but not sure) they are great for getting dried dirt off hooves before applying polish or conditioner. You can find them in the grocery store cheap.

    MTG is Mane-Tail-Groom, it's amazing! LOL! It does smell like bacon...but it really helps with mane & tail growth, rub spots (like if your horse was rubbing & lost hair in that area), etc. ;)

    I Find Cleaning Bits with toothpaste works amazing, It gets the grass and hard stuff right off while makeing the silver sparkleing and Give the horse a nice minty tatste..Until they lick it all off

    I'm so going to watch this thread :P
    My horse gets really dirty at winter when I can't really wash him..(winters in sweden isn't as bad as they say, but it's still too cold to wet the entire horse down :P )
    I wash him on day, and he's full of dust the next..I can't get it out even if I groom him for hours because it's so deep.. ><
    Any good ideas?
    I've tried most stuff already, it feels like..

    It is very dusty during the summer where I live...we do not get one drop of rain in the hot months . I had a bay mare that had the softest coat I have ever felt on a horse...she felt almost like a mink...anyway, the dust would just settle on her, almost like she was a magnet for dust. Brushing brushing brushing did nothing except move the dust around...even with the softest dandy brush and brushing her in a "flicking up" type stroke to get the dust to come up...very frustrating...what I found that would work on her was to spray like a fly spray or grand champion...something "light" on her and then brush...she looked like I had just given her a bath!

    I am a huge fan of those Slick n' Easy bricks for getting deep down loose hair and dirt. They are like $3 and you can find them online and in most tack stores. I love them.
