White-As-Snow Alternative
 
I learned from the other members that paprika is a good alternative for Cheval Internationals Black-as-Knight product... I couldn't help but wonder if you guys know a cost-effective and good substitute for the same company's White-as-Snow product?

I have a grey Arab, & white-as-snow worked wonders on him, the only draw back is that I have to order these products from the states (I live in the Emirates & they come through Dubai to Abu Dhabi), so I end up spending foooooortunes just on shipping the product, which is ridiculous if you think about it >_<;

any suggestions?

super 14 does wonders...it is made by farnam, I do not know if you can get it there or not though.

I just saw the packaging and it does look familiar, i think i've seen it around here.. but i also looked at it's contents, and it looks like any coat-enhancer supplement that works on any coat color, no?

For that purpose I already use omega horseshine and Omega-3 oils. Im hoping for something to enhance the brilliance/white of IB's coat.

super 14 can be used on any coat, but it will whiten/add dapples to a grey horse, I have pictures of mine before and after. Let me see if I can get some of them uploaded.

it was blurry because I had to take a pic of a pic.lol

This next one is in my horses barn thingy on here and it was taken about 2 to 3 weeks into it.
This last one was was about 2 months into it, yet again another pic of a pic but no so blurry.

she had even more dapples at the end of the summer, but she now has her winter coat and it is harder to see them.

omg? that's a huge transofrmation! is that even possible? i'm stunned!

someone just told me that all the mini people were feeding it and she was going to try it and now I am feeding it to, I am definitely sold on it.

That is just brilliant! I looked up the manufacturer's website and found out that they do in fact have a retailer in the Emirates. I hoping they'd have super-14 stock. Calling them shortly. Thanks Mini x

I just use regular shampoo on my horse. It's a lot cheaper ($1 a bottle), and it gets her just as clean as the expensive horse shampoo that's like $15 a bottle.

Here's what I do:
1) Wet her thoroughly.
2) Put the shampoo on (I usually use about a quarter to a third of a bottle every time I bathe my horse, but then again she's a draft...).
3) Use a currycomb to scrub her and rub the shampoo in.
4) Rinse her off.
5) Sweat scrape her.
6) Rinse her off again.
7) Sweat scrape her again.

I do that to make sure I get all of the shampoo and dirt off.

My boyfriend does the same thing. He drives a clydesdale and uses regular shampoo on his feathers, but he scrubs them and brushes them all the the time. There's another lady who drives his horse's brother, and she uses expensive horse shampoo, but all she does is pour it on and rinse it off, so her horse's feathers are always nasty and dirty.
