Grooming Tips - Whitener

Have you ever wondered how to get your horse's white legs really white without using lots of chemicals? 

Wash your horse's socks / stockings and rinse well -- you don't need an itchy horse! While the socks are still damp, apply cornstarch to the white areas to achieve a really bright white.

Once the socks are dry, brush off any excess -- use a clean brush or you'll be back at it.

You may be tempted to dump baby powder on the white legs, but I would avoid that since baby powder can contain talc which is a known irritant for the respiratory system.
