    yep ShowPony...how else do you think Jag looked so good & Black at the Olympics :D :))

    I have tried all the shampoo's mentioned previously and as nannygoat said they were all useless.

    Looks like U got really good results... how long did U have it in? How much did U use and how did U keep his white foot from getting stained? I tried it for the first time on my mare today but did not leave it in for more than about 10 min. Can't say I saw a huge difference but... and yes, I managed to stain her white foot too! :mad:

    I bandaged the white leg first.
    Then her and sponged the Condy's on her. I used a lot of Condy's and didn't dilute it with much water. I put more on the lighter areas.
    Normally, I wait until the coat is dry before washing it off.

    Hope that helps :)

    To keep the socks white you can cover the socks in vaseline or conditioner (really pack it on), then you just wash it off and no stains, vaseline works the best though.

    Ah, thanx guys! **)
    Wish I had figured that out before trying to dye the poor thing... lol hope I can get the stains out. At least I was smart enough to do this when I have no shows planned in... lol :D Was a little too careful I think, just did not know how she would react to it. Can it damage the skin if left on for too long? Is allergic reactions common? Anyone know? I used 2 caps for one bucket.

    I would dilute 2 caps in about 4-5 cm's of warm water, then sponge it on.

    A whole bucket of water with that little amount I would think would have little to no effect.
