Cleaning white faces?
My horse has quite a bit of white on her face. I sometimes spray it reeeeally lightly with the hose but it never gets it all out. what are good tips to making their faces really white for shows?

My horse only has small facial markings, but I just use baby shampoo. This way if it gets in her eyes it won't sting. Then I turn the water on really low and she knows to drop her head so the water runs down her face and doesn't risk getting in her ears.

I've never shown before, but I have had luck with a soft face curry and baby wipes. They can clean up those white markings really well.

My beast is all white... yay lucky me.
I've found that currying while rinsing out the shampoo really cleans out the dirt. The best whiteners have a bluing agent, but they're not always the nicest to eyes.

I just fill a sponge with warm water and maybe a teensy bit of soap and scrub my girls' blaze and nose. It works great. She's pretty sure she's going to drop dead, but she'll get over it eventually. =]

EQ Solutions or Ez All concentrated works great because it does not sting their eyes. You will what I have in my avatar, he is a bald faced paint.

We wash with baby shampoo and a soft curry, touch up with baby wipes and keep coated in bug guard.

Self Rinse Plus. It is a self rinsing shampoo with a whiting agent. Spray some onto a cloth and rub the white spot in small circles. It will get very foamy. Then take a shammy and dry the face. Then redo it until it looks clean. Self rinse plus can be used everywhere. I use it on my chestnuts tail in the winter when I can't wash it. It is also great for touching up spots at shows!

No, DONT do that. >.>
I would suggest baby wipes as well--and they are very gentle on the eyes. Then I would go through with shampoo and use a curry.
