See if she is getting enough vits and minerals in her feed if her coat is still dull maybe pop a little oil in her feed. I second a curry comb, My all white mare loves the mud, I mix a little baby powder/calcium carbonate with warm water to make a paste smear it on her, allow it to dry and then bush it off! Clean pony!

I found a chapstick that smells like it!!!! But I can't remember what it's called. It's at Walmart and it's in a grey tube w/ purple writing.

OP: I don't think the chapstick will help your horse tho, sorry

I keep my grey horse body clipped. Just a good brushing and away we go!

I love my vacuum. Really makes cleaning easy, but it doesn't do much for manure stains. I use the hot toweling method when I need to. I blanket the horse and wash a small part of his body with hot water at a time, towel-drying each part and then re-blanketing the area before I move on to the next area.

I wrote a blog about winter grooming for a show. Its not particularly written for a gray horse but the same principles apply --
