Tricks of the Trade->black horses

So got to ask you folks out there. Do you have any tricks on how to clean black horses really well. It doesnt matter how much your groom them, they never seem to look clean.

Any tricks?

My horse is black so I know what you mean. The dust just never seems to go away. I give mine a bath about every 2 weeks in the summer. When I want her to look clean in between times I just brush her a lot, then use a damp cloth to pick up the dust. I use a conditioner on her when bathing otherwise she will look dull after. I like the Mane and Tail shampoo and conditioner.

You could try a vacum.

Pepi Champion spray works really well. It repels the dust so it keeps them nice and shiny for a while. Also using conditioner when you bath keeps some dust/dirt away.

I have an 'almost' black horse and I add Black As Knight to his grain and yeah, I vacuum him a ton. I also blanket him during the winter and cover him during the summer. And color enhancing shampoos always help, although in the winter I just use a warm rag which works well at getting off surface dust.

You can rub a soft towel over them, or a chamois to get some dirt off... I use that trick when I show...

Yep, it's a special horse vacuum. I use it almost every time I ride, it's basically a regular vacuum, but for horses and it come in handy in the winter when you can't bath 'em.
