Wow!! She looks great. So, did she roll in the dirt afterwards? That's what my Paint did after spending a lot of time and elbow grease to get him clean. I almost cried. ;)

Haha, riding an orange pumpkin. How fitting considering she has got Alfred Hitchcock on her right flank.

Whoa! LOL, delayed response? *giggles* I posted this months ago!

In answer to the questions, I am sickened and disgusted in the ownership of such a grossly white horse. I use some sort of stupid pointless "stain repellent!" shampoo on her and if you can't tell, I'm a liiiiiiiiittle bit bitter since she was absolutely covered in dirt and manure stains the next DAY.

So we've come to the agreement she can continue looking like a mudball. It was fun having a shiny while it lasted :roll:

Does anyone have any tips? I'm really assuming there's nothing I can do seeing as she's not a show horse, she doesn't wear a sheet and we don't have a barn. Even when it's dry, she's so white, the dirt stains her coat like I didn't even think was possible. I can curry the actual dirt off her, but the stains won't budge unless I bath her. Which just isn't happening weekly for a 2 year old backyard pony, she can stay dirty, LMAO.

We're just a little bit behind. LOL. I can't really suggest anything to help keep her clean, dirt is just the bane of paint and white horses. ROFLMAO!!

I love when my Paint mare is clean. I just love how much the black shines and the white glows. =] She's beautiful, and looks amazing and healthy.

As far as keeping them clean... my mare is pretty clean by choice. She doesn't roll unless she is soaking wet, and she only hits the dirt to sleep. I've never had manure stains on her. I know there's a "green spot" something or other that works really well to clean off manure stains. Just spray it on and wipe with a towel. I also find that since my horse is white AND black, the black makes the white look much whiter than it really is. =]

Yeah, don't look.

I've given up keeping Toby sparkling white. I brush him out to get the main dirt off of him, but that's all I'm doing. It's too heartbreaking otherwise.

I had spent an hour grooming him and this is how he thanked me

Thanks guys! She's definately one of those natural borne "pig" horses. Which is just awesome, seeing as my Arab mare is to (luckily she's chestnut and just doesn't stain the way a white one does). I swear, the seek OUT mud puddles to roll in. My Arab mare has actually made my jaw drop before. Anytime it rains, she will be by FAR the filthiest thing standing in the pasture. I think she has a paint brush hidden in the pasture and gets the other horses to coat her up when she knows I'm coming out just to see the look on my face :roll:

I'll worry about sparkles when she's a show pony Until then, I'll just pretend my minimal color pinto is actually a minimal white pinto, LOL.

When I saw this post I was inspired to make myself a shiny too!

But my B&W girl is also a mud hog...I groom, she rolls, I groom, she rolls. There's just nothing to be done but grin and bear it! Or spend all your time grooming...and grooming... and grooming. hehehehehe

Your girl is gorgeous...either way!
