Ivy is 90 percent white. I keep her stall well padded with clean shavings and keep a blanket on her while she's in her stall. it is 12 by 24 and lucky for me she poops in one end and sleeps in the other. She is out in a large paddock during the day, but it is mostly sandy dirt, so is often dusty, but not too dirty. She stays pretty clean that way, but with a white one you just have to accept stains for their daily life... for shows, I body clipped my old (also max white) tovero as the short hair was much easier to clean, then used loads of quicksilver shampoo ...

Otherwise pretend you have a pinto and cope until spring.
I agree...One of our mares is almost all white (and a 'mud-er') and I was going to say "don't even waste your time trying".

Personally, I'm just closing my eyes and pretending I don't care about the stains on Caly. She's got sooo much white and she's in the pasture 24/7. Not like we're doing any shows anytime soon, though. However, in warmer weather I've been told any shampoo with "blue" or "purple" in it works wonders for white. Can't wait to try it on my mare on the next warm day!

My neighbor rubs baking soda on the stains and then brushes it out and the stains are gone.
