The "blueing" shampoos for white horses work great. But I've never gotten great results for the ones for chestnuts/bays/blacks. Anyone find it makes a big difference?
I generally wash with Ivory dishsoap and then if I have a grey or a white sock, I will wash it again with Quik Silver.
I've used the Rio Vista chestnut shampoo on my red mare. Couldn't really tell much difference, and watch out with white socks (they turn pink). Maybe it would make more of a difference on a sunbleached horse?
Well, they work well enough for me to buy them...quic silver or quic color. It says the effect intensifies with each use and it seems to be true, more noticeable difference after 2-3 baths. The results with quic color weren't as stunning for darker coats, haven't tried the quic black.
i love quic silver for my pinto pony who is mostly white, but i almost bought a little bottle of quic black last year when i was leasing 2 black ponies. i inquired on coth, actually, asking if it really works, and i was told to avoid it, it doesnt work, and it makes their coats dull-looking. *shrug* i'll just stick with my quicsilver, i dont need any black-color shampoos.
though i am wondering about which color shampoos are good for chestnut--would love to intensify my pony's chestnut spots.
