Stain Removing

So, I discovered today that I ran out of my stain-remover for my ponies coat.I have a show on Saturday & the closest tack store is an hour away & if I order it online, it wont get here in time.So does anyone know of anything that I could buy at like walmart or somewhere that would remove stains from my pony, without having to bathe him?He always seems to get dirty right before we go in the show ring, when its too late to bathe him.

Dawn dish soap for bathing (the blue kind). Or, if your Wal*Mart has a pet section they should have whitening shampoo for dogs.

For pre-show ring prep, I prefer to use chalk or shapley's spray, but since you're in a pinch just pat a bit of baby power over any white.

For things like socks and blazes, clipping always helps get the really stained hair off. Wrapping legs the night before (if you bathe the night before) and not taking the wraps off until absolutely necessary always help too, of course.

Yep, this is another great tip. A while ago my barn was getting painted, and the painter didn't listen when told to wait to do the stalls until the horses could be taken out. Well, my friends pally ended up with red paint in his mane/on his neck. She mixed oxy-clean with whitening shampoo and it worked really well.
