There is no hope in keeping a white horse through the winter...I am finding that out now with mine! "Aghhh!"

keeping a white horse white

hiya i use a superdandy horse hoover for grooming and when i bath them i use absobine superpoo thats a good horse shampoo it removes soil stains off of the coat.
well the crem of the crem i had a mad idear as our old dog had a coat with legs in it as when he came in from the yard he was clean to go in the house so i had a couple made up for tricky and tammy so i would bath them the day before a show and cover them up from pasterns to muzle the coats had a neck up to there ears and i also had a jr horse ware hood with ears and a tail guard with a tail bag.
thay were as clean as thay were bathed and if thay layed down in there stables in the night after thay had there hay and feed thay could not get soiled thay only wore the coats when we were going to shows.
also normal grooming with brushes.

Blanket and clip all year round and even wear leg wraps outside. You can also Bathe indoors. The best shampoo and conditioner for greys and whites are the PURPLE coloured ones. it works!

When I just can't take it anymore in the winter w a white coat...I get the "worst" off w miracle groom. Otherwise, I just deal.

There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.

If you everdo the cleaning and grooming you remove the waxy dander which protects her skin.
