Q: I have a jet-black horse, and when he’s clean, his coat is the envy of the barn. But when he gets the tiniest bit of dust on him, it’s very visible on his dark coat. In the winter, dust seems to cling to his coat. No matter how much I brush, the dirt just comes back and makes him look dull and brown. How can I keep his winter coat shiny and dust-free for schooling shows and clinics?
