My horse would crap a brick if I tried to vacuum him. My horse is a dark chestnut and he looks dusty again the day after his bath regardless of how much I brush. I just brush until my arms tired and use a damp cloth as already mentioned. :}

You'd be surprised how easy it is to get a horse to vacuum. I've been able to do it to all my horses. I have two pretty high strung/ spooky tbs and I use to own the hottest aqha to ever walk the planet and I was able to do them all. It just takes a few sessions before they get completely use to it. For really spooky horse all you need is a distraction

Baby wipes. Gets the surface dirt right off, just curry the heck out of 'em, get as much off with a soft brush, then go over with the wipe.

What about clipping horses? Do you find that it might cause them to bleach out quicker? Thinking it might be a good way of keeping him looking cleaner.

My horse looks darker when we clip him, but we keep him really covered year round so, I'm not sure if it will cause them to bleach out faster, but I wouldn't think so...

I just bought quic black shampoo (I have a bay paint, so I'm going to use it on his tail, mane, and legs), and if it works well I'll definitely let you know! Just have to wait for another one of those nice-weather, sunny days...

In shows, for scratches I use black marker as well and MTG in the tail before going into the ring makes it shine.

Black marker?! You can't be talking about the what I'm thinking about right. Not a felt right?!
