whiting socks and blaze?

I've got 3 horses that I'm training this winter and 1 is piebald with a red face and a white blaze, another with a white star on the nose and the other in high socks :) I want to keep it shining white, cause the socked one is dark red and it would be beautiful to have then clear white, are there any tricks to shine them without bath, though I do it nearly every 2 weeks.?

If they don't have horses in haven, I'm not going.

Without a bath...I've only ever heard of baby powder (usually for a show) and maybe baby wipes?

When you do bathe however, my friend used to use diluted betadine on her horses legs. Put a couple cap fulls in a small bucket of water, scrub legs and let sit for maybe a minute and wash immediately. If it sits to long it stains...get it off soon enough and they shine!

i have a pinto mare and she is soo dirty all the time! i use this shampoo called glow white, and sometimes its good if your horse has a pink/white nose, white zinc works well on it as it will whiten it and will stop her from getting sunburnt O.o! and baby powder mixed with water and in a spray bottle mixed toigether works well too, just spray onto white legs, wit for it to dry and brush away.
Another good thing is white chalk just rub it onto legs and leave it there. you can put white horse makeup on small white socks but i find it uses heaps if put on a long white socks! and also works on a face marking.
so i hoped i have helped :P

Shapleys (the people that make mtg) have some white chalk spray type of stuff...i put it on my horses white markings and it works very well! And it was only like $8 a can or something. I ordered mine from Horse Supplies & Horse Tack HorseLoverZ.com

Try MiricleGroom. It comes in a blue-purple bottle. I spray it on my horses, or on a cloth, and use the cloth and wipe it off. I have a black arab stallion and he has white markings and gets majorly dirty, so I spray it on him and then he sparkles. It came in handy a while back when I had to take photos of him for his Stud Ad.
My other geldings, are a palomino and a chestnut and they both have white blazes and stockings and they of course love the mud, and I use it on them too, and their white markings will really shine. It gets the dirt right off. And my bay mare with a blaze and her blaze is really interesting, always looked dirty til I used MiricleGroom on it!

It also works on manes and tails! My bay mare has a really small tail, like an appy but she`s a Trakehner. And it has helped her tail a lot. It looks fuller and really healthy :)

I used it on my palominos long white mane before our western class. He had got it all dirty from rubbing up against his stall and i used it on his mane and pure white!

My friends grey arab gelding had a green spot on him, from my stallion actually. He drooled all over him at a show! I told her to use some, and it came off and she sparkled! :)

It`s also called Bath In a Bottle :)
It`s amazing. Big bottle and afforable. I think they come in wipes too. I`m just trying to find a photo for you. Here :) 427960 Miracle Groom Spy32Oz 12 (427960), 427960, Horse Supplies

Great stuff, I love it! And it even smells nice. And its so much easier than bathing the morning at a show or before a show.

For extra white touch ups at the show i use Champion Tails White Cover Colour Creme, i paint it on wait till it dries then with a clean,clean!! body brush just dust it so it looks natural. Works a treat!! I dont like baby powder, it attracts to much dust...

For washing i use the Champion Tails Stain remover (Its a purple powder) then a good scrub with Kohnke's Cleen sheen. And for extra nappisan works well. And of course for a nice soft shiny coat a spray all over with Absorbine's Showsheen . =D

They look mickey mouse!!
