that mane n tail whitening stuff works good. it comes out purple, but you leave it on for a couple min and it comes off white! I used it on my paint gelding as an experiment, even though he's a SB paint, he has 2 very high white socks on his back feet. It was funny, i only used it in one spot on his leg, and it was pure white, while around it was greay/brown/ haha! my rainbow horse!

The reason whitening shampoos are purple, is because on the color wheel, purple is the opposite of yellow, thus neutralizing the color. This is why when people (such as myself) use a toner (that is purple!) to get icky yellow out of their bleached hair, and to give it a platinum look. And actually, if the horse gets almost the lightest tint of purple, he'll dry OMGZ!White - I would know, 'cause I accidentally did it one time with Farnam's white n bright. Nothing else has 'toned' him like good old white n bright!

Got a gray/blue roam and want him silver/blue? Use a blue shampoo. It will work with the natural color of the hair to make him even more blue/silver looking.

I've got a lovely bunch of Neuticals,
There they are all standing in a row

When I worked at the Philadelphia Zoo, we used Murphy's Oil Soap on the elephants to wash them. It is not all harmful (vegetable oil soap) and worked well. I use on my dogs also. Perhaps it would work on your horse?

I would go wit what a lot of other people have said as far as clipping and wrapping then show touch up the day of. I am ALWAYS having issues keeping D's legs white. The day before a show I will wash him and then wrap his legs over night and clean his stall two or three times during the night so he has NOTHING to lay in LOL. In the morning I use corn starch and if that isn't doing the trick I'll use show touch up becareful on the neck though or else your reins might turn white! LOL same for your boots if you put it on their barrel
