White horses might show spots here and there, but OMG! Just got my first BLACK horse this year and he's IMPOSSIBLE to keep clean. Of course, he also has to wallow in any mud he can find. I wash him, let him dry, rub my hand across his coat and.... dust. GAH!

I have decided my favorite color on a horse, at least here in red-clay-Alabama, is buckskin/grulla. My mare is the same color, clean or dirty! LOL.

Courage is taking just one more step...

LOL, well, if they're anything like cars, that totally makes sense. I used to have a black car and it was IMPOSSIBLE to keep clean. Mind you, I live in a cold climate where salt is sprayed on the roads all winter long, so my black car was almost never black. I now drive a white car, and while I hesitated to buy it, it's WAY easier to keep clean than my black car was!

I 2nd alcohol. I pour it into it in a spray bottle and use a towel to rub the spot off. It is much less expensive than any of the commercial products.

Quantity does not mean quality.
