What scares me is that she actually got that dirty on a DRY day!
Learn to love the dirt, Chelsi!!! You get a little less annoyed by it over time. Of course, Rusty still looks dirty even after grooming him due to the roaning, so I've learned to look the other way a bit. :-)
"Dirty Pixie"! I used to own a white horse, and have recently owned a gray, so I know just what you mean!
Welcome to the joys of a white horse! We used to say that Maddie was trying out other coats. She had a palomino look (we had clay soil), a dun look (after putting equispot on her), both a blanketed Appy look and a leopard spot Appy look, a paint look and an attempt at chestnut, all depending on mud and dust conditions.Casey, as you know is black. He's THAT dirty, as dirty as Pixie, after a slightly moist day. We had a heavy dew.All I can suggest is blanketing or giving up on keeping her really clean.
she looks like she had a fun day! I'm moving my mare this weekend to a place where she can actually get out of her stall, can't wait!
So if Pixie didn't stick, what about Trixie? or Trix.
lol, just wait till it gets wet!
Love the name and the video Beauty in Motion.
Just think of all the good bonding hours you and Pixie will have together as you curry and brush all that dirt out. I enjoyed reading about how you came to buy Pixie. Love the name. Is it sticking? At least the dirt won't stick and you can be happy knowing your girl enjoyed herself getting that way.
I used to have a mostly white paint mare too - there is a shampoo I used that never failed - Shimmering White - I highly recommend it. Maybe try it out next summer you'd be amazed at what it can do - beats the pants off of QuickSilver.
