I use a dry shampoo that is also good for dry skin... I will have to look at the actual brand name when I am in the barn tomorrow morning and get back to you. I just sprinkle some on and brush it out with a couple of different types of brushes until I think it looks good. I have a Tibiano Paint and she ALWAYS gets dirty... I don't think she knows she's white. SO I use the dry shampoo quite a bit...

Your waterless shampoos are basically just good for spot washing, getting stains out.Good brushing & using these products can really tidy them up when bathing isn't an option.I like Cowboy Magic works great on my white Paints!!

Buy a horse vacuum. BEST. INVENTION. EVER. Saves hours of futile grooming, and makes for a pretty good substitute for a bath when it's too cold, or otherwise not possible to bathe them. If you're at a boarding barn, you could probably get people to chip in for it.

Her "cold" concerns me a lot more than her dustiness though. Do you know what she actually has?

Before I brought her home, all the horses at the barn where she was got a cold. The weather changed very quickly and most of the horses got sick. I guess it was a shock to their system to go from +10-20*C to nearly freezing overnight. They were put on antibiotics and she had a bit of a runny nose when I picked her up. No cough, nothing else... just a bit of a drippy nose and the odd sniffle-snort noise. She's all better now.

I know this thread is a couple of days old but if it's just dust you're wanting to get rid of and don't want to wet her down (I can understand that as I really want to bathe my paint filly!) you can use a tack cloth. The ones they use after sanding wood down? They're great for getting the dust off!! Just rub lightly in the direction the hair grows and that should take care of all the dust sitting on top of her coat. Mind you this is after you're done grooming. :)
