I have tried Skin So Soft on myself as a bug repellent, didn't work for mosquitos at all. For white horses, just use whatever thick shampoo you have and mix it with Mrs. Stewart's bluing, found in the laundry section of any grocery store, that will whiten your horse like no tomorrow. http://www.oklahomahistory.net/ttpho...artsBluing.jpg
I used Skin-so-Soft on horses with summer itch. It turned mane-less into 15" within a year. BUT....has to be the "Original" bath oil. The scented one's don't work. It does keep flies away from eyes, too.
I LOVE Mrs. Stewart's Bluing, just be careful, it can turn your horse blue in a minute if you use too much or leave it on too long. I like to mix up in the rinse water and put it on and leave it for several minutes and then rinse and give a "hot oil" treatment.
Skin So Soft and vinegar works pretty good as a bug repellant.
I use the original skin so soft on myself and shih tzu's, but I mix it first. I take a spray bottle, put in a couple of capfulls of skin so soft, small amount of apple cider vinegar, fill with water and shake. It works for me and my dogs.
That is way too expensive for that use and also when the vogue was to use it on tails? Lost all feathers as it makes hair very brittle. Stupid decision by stupid people, no feathers is NOT good in ASB world.
Owning a black horse now I won't use any oil based sprays but used to on my chestnut use the one above with great success. My inside dog gets a capful in her rinse water as well. Posted via Mobile Device
