"Black as Night" for a dunalino?

I'm thinking about getting a supplement to help my dunalino colt's coat. His sire is very dark, almost has black legs when his coat is in good condition.
I've heard of people using Black as Night for their palomino's coat to help darken it up.
Have you ever used it? Or if you use a different supplement for your horses coat, what is it?

Wouldn't do anything for a dunalino as there is no black to affect. Black as Knight is designed to help blacks and bays not palominos/dunalinos. You can get just as good an effect as the black as knight by making sure your horse has a balanced diet and is getting all of the minerals, etc., that it needs.

What is the "black as night"? Is it a supplement, or a dye?
My black horse is not very black right now. She fades when I leave her out.

Once the bleaching is done there's not much to help it. Wait for a new coat to come in, stall during day, pasture at nighttime. The makers of black as night make one for paliminos also that may help. You'll have to start before the spring shed though.

By the way, my black mare is brown right now, but she's happy that way, so I don't worry about it. Praise god for a sorrel, sun just makes them prettier.

My mare is brown now as well. Like you said, she is happy. If I were showing right now I'd worry more about it.

Deffinately sunbleach lol. He looked just like his daddy last year..now he just looks..blarg.

I do not have the ability to stall during the day. It gets about 110 here everyday, and no matter how many fans and misters I would put up it doesn't help dry ass heat haha.

One of my friends actually mentioned sunflower seed oil. She showed me pictures of before and after on her horses, and it was amazing. Her bay went from a dull lighter brown to a dark dark rich bay. Think I might try that, before I even try black and knight.

The same company that makes that product for the blacks also makes a product for palominos too. Just dont remember what its called.

Any day riding is a good day.
