I've tried brushing, scrubbing, quick silver, vetrolin green stain, cowboy magic stain remover...

and NADA !

Dosen't fricken work !!!!

I need him white for show season ! And NEHH! The stains been there for about 2 months :/ going on three... what can I do..?

Heh, my trainer would use Soft Scrub.... the kind without bleach on the difficult spots. Not something I'd necessarily do, as it is a household chemical, but she never had any adverse reactions, and I saw her do it hundreds of times without any problems.

I'd just baby powder it to be honest! Or get some of that body touch up spray.

Are you sure it's a stain and not new colouring? Do you have pictures?

Yeeah I'm pretty sure green is all the new rage on horses :P

It dosent show up so well in pictures but when you actually see him its REALLY bad. :/ And you can KINDA make out half of it on his left.. hind leg? Its only worse now going ALL the way down his leg.

I have paints with white legs too and I feel your pain, if you can give a bath or even just bathe that leg I would start using Farnam White 'N Brite Shampoo and try to wash that spot at least once a week with it, let it sit on for at 10 mins, don't go any longer then that or it might leave him with a purple tint to his hair but I swear by the stuff!

My paint has a stain in the very same spot but the opposite leg. I think it is the leg she rests beneath her while she's laying down, and it gets manure soaked. I use cowboy magic and a damp warm cloth. I would dry it with a blowdryer afterwards if she/he lets you, because if you leave it wet it collects dirt so much easier.

I use White n Brite on my paint too. To me it works the best. I tried Quicsilver but it never got the stains completely out.

Hate to tell you, but you're probably going to have to clip that leg and keep it wrapped/drenched in sheen product.

We had an all white cow that was dirty always and we tried everything, then someone told us to use wool lite and it came right out.

My horse is the same - usually both hocks and knees are G R E E N. I gave up and just clipped his legs. So much easier :)
