Would it be worth it to use whitening shampoo on a cream-colored horse?

My friend uses QuickSilver (sp?) on her Paint and it works like a dream. I was wondering if it would do any good for my mom's horse, who has a flaxen mane and tail and cream-colored legs. My mom was hoping it would bring out his highlights. But the stuff is pretty expensive and I want to know if anyone else has done it before I go and buy it. Here's a picture of him if it helps:



And his mane:

I heard all kinds of stories about whitening shampoos & didn't believe them. We had a show to go to & my daughter got me to buy this,
PETCO Whitening Shampoo for Dogs at PETCO

It was only $6.99 when we got it & I figured if it didn't whiten our boys sock & stripe/snip/star we could just use it as a body shampoo until it ran out.

It's amazing.

If quicksilver is better, I'd say get it & try it on his legs first to see how well it works.

It's definitely worth it to me.

Thanks, I think I'll try that dog shampoo. If nothing else, I can use it on our Collie.

You might think I am crazy, but QuicBlack or any 'darkening' shampoo also works to make light horses very bright and clean looking. Having a dark horse, I also use it on his socks to brighten them and they look wonderful afterwards - just don't leave it on too long or it turns them blue.

I have also heard laundry detergent works, however, I have not tried this and I would be very wary of skin irritation.
