question about Goop

i have a mare that has lots of white on her legs and i would really like it to be white again. i have heard great things about Goop. my husband works on cars in his free time so i know from experience that this type of cleaner can do wonders on stains.

i want to get a container of goop to use on my mare every now and then to hopefully see white stockings on her again but which type do i get?

what type are you guys using? is it the original Goop or the Groomers Goop? if its the original should i get just the creme or the creme with the pumice in it? about how much do i need per bath?

Regardless of what brand you use I would never get anything to use on their legs with grit or pumice in it.

Skin on the leg is almost always more sensitive and I swear thinner than other areas of the body.
What would be fine on the body will abrade and scratch their legs opening the horse up to a myriad of other issues and conditions you would not want to consider.

Have you tried blue original Dawn hand dishwashing soap,.... I had great success and no bad reactions on my horses "chrome" markings...
This will though potentially strip out some of the oils from their coat and skin so beware of skin drying issues.

I also used just Orvus horse shampoo and a little rubbing and had terrific results.

I've used the original Goop with great results on the mane and tail. Just have to use conditioner. There's a whitening spray shampoo by Mane & Tail that works wonders, too. I use that before a show and can be found at Tractor Supply.

For whitening, I just use Cowboy Magic and elbow grease. I like the purple stuff, too, but be careful what brand you get. Some brands are better than others. I tried Shapely's but it just didn't do it for me.

I think the orginal Goop is the best. It always works for me on my horses white tail and white areas.

I use Groomer's Goop on my white show cats, and it works great!

Personally, if it isn't made for hair and/or skin care for critters or peeps (with the exception of Dawn) I stay away from it.
