I've used Cowboy Magic during the winter for spot cleaning. I can't say it worked wonders, but it worked to an acceptable level. I would get it again. Having lots of chrome = lots of elbow grease. That's just the way it is.

I'll have to try using Qucksilver if I get another warm enough day to give him a bath :)

I just had to retire my TB who is a bay due to an injury and the barn I'm at now has a lot of horses that need to be worked and I fell in love with this ones personality but never realized how much work it is to keep them clean since I'm used to having a bay lol

LOL I'd totally love to not have to tame my wild mane!!! I personally wouldn't roach as I have show horses, but if I had a pasture pet or just a be-bop around horse that rolled in the mud all day I may consider it.

Believe it or not charcoal works wonders on manure and urine stains in the knees and hocks. That was where my big grey would ALWAYS get stubborn stains when he would lay in his stall.
I just used charcoal briquettes (WITHOUT lighter fluid built in! Very important not to rub lighter fluid on your horse!) and rubbed it into the stains, then brushed the charcoal dust off. Cheap and easy and it worked!

Diluted vinegar mixture. 1/2 cup vinegar to every quart of water. My mom has a small breed dog with a white coat and the vinegar bath makes her coat gleam. (Groomer suggested it) It should work on a horse too (be careful around the eyes and nose) Gotta be careful though it's totally safe but vinegar is acidic (even when diluted like this) so over use could break down natural oils in the skin and coat. Rinse well!

Move to the dessert!

White horses and mud - never a good combination.

A tail bag, well rugged and silicone spray on the legs to fend off the mud.

Otherwise pretend you have a pinto and cope until spring.
