I like to use the adhesive spray and then sprinkle cornstarch on and brush away the excess. That way it won't fall down on the hooves.

My horse from 2 years ago had huge white socks, and they were impossible to stay clean! So I blamed the muddy arena and left them

One Word: Goop!

You can get it at Walmart for pretty cheap. Apply it to DRY white areas, let it sit for a few minutes and then put shampoo on.. still DRY, let it sit, and then add water, lather and wash it off as normal. It works great!
