Question White socks question

My Clydesdale is a commercial with a standard bred. He has three white socks and one black sock. The black sock is cool because it has a mix of colours of black, brown and a snip of white on his knee. But since the pasture is getting to muddy his poor white socks are getting distroid! What can I use to keep them beautifuly white again? I can't wash him, its winter and its too cold.

Maybe use a wet cloth. Also try cornstarch for showing, some friends of mine used to use it, it worked really well.

You can us Baby Powder once you groom all the dried mud off, but with Baby Powder you will have to re apply it each time you bring your horse in as it is just powder and the wet mud would just make it dirty again. It will make it a little whiter but wont last long in the field. But Baby Powder works well for shows. Also I know that there is a special horse product at Greenhawk I believe that's like spray paint you spray on to the horses legs. Hope I helped! :)
