Ive used both manowar and main and tail and I love main and tail. My horse has 4 white socks and a white blaze though so im looking for a shampoo that really brings out the white any ideas? Also how do you keep you're horses socks clean my horse is always dirty lol. Also since she is black when she gets dirty she turns a dirty brownish and sometimes it wont come out?? Any ideas? Thanks
I use Mane and Tail also and love how it takes out the dirt pretty fast with hardly any scrubbing (but then again I have a white horse so maybe it seems pretty fast because I can see a huge result haha).
I love Cowboy Magic, especially the spray ones. Green Spot removal sprays will take out a lot of the poop spots (I recommend spraying above the spot you want taken out and scrub down with a brush into the hair. I found it works a lot faster that way). I have a friend who uses baby powder to whiten up socks and her horse's blaze for a last minute spot up at a show.
I personally like using Quicksilver whitening shampoo. It goes on purple so you can see where it is at and does a great job bring out a shine to the coat.
For shampoo & conditioner I usually use some cheap people stuff. Suave or VO5. It works just as well as any of the more expensive stuff...and it smells pretty! Cope has a blaze and four stockings...Several times a year I use White N' Brite or Quicksilver on them. White N' Brite goes on purple also. They also bring out his roaning.
I also use Mane n Tail shampoo and conditioner. I dilute it and works great. I have light colored horses but fortunately they don't get too dirty, plus after most trailrides they get hosed down to remove any sweat and mud.
I use Silk Therapy on they manes and tails and it works great. (its for people). A little goes a looooong way and as some of you know, I have apps and work very hard to get the tails and manes they have (no brushing or combing, all finger picking).
If I want to brighten up the socks (being a trail rider, not a big priority) I use diluted Shimmer Lights (people shampoo) works just like the horse whitening shampoos.
I often cross over between people products and horse products for my horses, as long as the ph is between 4.5 and5.5 it will not be harsh for them and go for the moisturizing products as horse hair already has high protein content in it , they need the moisture benefits in products.
