Omega Horseshine is healthy for them, and it does give their coats a nice sheen. My Haflinger got his dapples back after being on it for a while.

As opposed to you calling other people's horses ugly is not rude!!

My horse (Relan) used to be a dapple grey. He is fully grey except his mane and he is gorgeous. Everyone that knows Relan thinks he is beautiful. I don't know what you see but maybe you shouldn't have gotten the horse if you don't think it will be beautiful in the end. Like I said alot of people like grey horses. Don't dis them ;).

Buzzby & Kaylee...you should both go back and reread my post. I NEVER said gray horses are ugly. In fact, I used to own one. I simply meant that gray horses don't always have the shine that other horses have. Furthermore, I already stated I am not the owner of the horse. I'm his trainer.

Furthermore, what does the post have to do with other people's horses?

This is what I was going for. If you want a shiny It brought out the dapples in my other horse. Most likely your horse will not get the dappples again but the flax will get your horses coat super shiny.

That's all I meant. I did not mean to offend anyone by saying gray horses are ugly. I just wanted to know if there's something to bring/keep the dapples, but obviously not...so then I went to my next hope...maintaining a shiny coat..

Like I said I recommend ground Flax (just feed it per feeding) or this is a pretty good supplement. SmartShine® - Horse Skin & Coat Supplements from SmartPak Equine

I used to feed a cup of flax seed a day to my horses. I also used "Source" which is an excellent all natural additive that helps with the coat (and overall health). Now that I am feeding a ration balancer that includes many of those ingredients, I'm just sticking with that. My horse is blooming dapples, shiny, and has gained weight since I bought him. Oh, and he is a grey!

Can I ask how old your horse is? Shareef is 7 and has lost a lot of his dapples this summer, but they seem to come back in the winter.
