Find the rules for wherever you are showing and see what they say about hoof polish. Breed shows especially – for example – appaloosas are not allowed anything but clear – so open app shows with classes where you can show a TB for experience, may require clear polish if any is used. always check the rules. but if the rules say nothing about polish, then go with clear all around because of the 2 white socks. no polish depends on the judges – if you know someone in the know, check to see if the judge of the day might have a preference for polished or not. this is due to the trends you mentioned, you have to keep up with them if the judges do, but if the judges don’t, then… It can be quite the mystery!
