    ^ the shimmer lights is safe to use everyday if you like. It is NOT by any means harmful to horses...we even use to wash our white jack russel with it before taking her to a show with us....sparkling white!!!! I swear by this product and will use it till they stop producing it or come out with something better.....my mother use to have very blonde hair and she used it everyday. You will be shocked by the outcome!!!!

    I have seriously THE weirdest remedy for that.
    I used to have a very light grey horse and what I used was... drum roll please....

    Baby powder!

    Its easy on sensitive skin and REALLY brings out the white in their coat.

    Just sprinkle a bit on after grooming and use a soft brush to brush it through.. then if theres any left over just go over lightly with a dry towel. The results are almost instant. :]

    I used to use baby powder on my noriker--(and used the same method as you)
    It worked, but not as well as I would have liked it to. (I thought I was the only person crazy enough to put baby powder on my horse)=D Lol!

    I am a big fan of all of the Cowboy Magic products. When I had a mare with white stockings, I used the Cowboy Magic Yellow Out and it works wonders.

    You could also use what is called castel soap you can get it at most drug stors or tack shops. It is great for getting stains out and brightening them up.

    As for the mane don't use showsheen it has silicon in it which will dry out the mane or any other product with that in it.
    Try Miricale groom it is good at detangling the mane. The key is not to rip out o many hairs.But every once in a while you may trim the mane to get rid of the split ends. It is like human hair when you cut it it grows better.

    My guys mane is almost down to his shoulder.
    Hope this helps

    One of the best and simplest ways to help a horse grow out their mane or tail better is to put it up in braids. This prevents the hair from getting pulled out or rubbed off, which causes the mane and tail to get shorter. Get tiny little ruber hair elastics (you can even buy the ones meant for people) and make small, simple braids in the horse's mane. You don't want to make them so tight that it's uncomfortable for the horse, but you don't want them too loose either or they will fall out. It works well to make the braid loose at the begining of the braid, and tighter down towards the end. You can leave this braids in for quite a while and just redo them when the start to get frizzy or come undone. Learn how to properly braid and wrap your horses tail. I'm not as experienced at wraping tails (my horse never needed it) but you can find lots of info online about it. Then when it comes time to show, unbraid everything, wash and condition the hair, and comb the hair carefully to get out any snarls. Comb the mane and tail only as much as necisary. If you keep the hair braided you won't need to comb it as often. Having braids in the mane in tail isn't as pretty as having loose, flowing hair. But you will sure notice the difference when it comes time to show your horse off!

    You can also get leave in conditioners to improve the quality of your horses hair.

    I hope that was helpful. Your horse is beautiful by the way.
