You say this right after you say that you are only training this horse. Why are you asking about supplements for a horse you do not even own. I believe that it is up to the owner as to what to feed their horse and what they wont feed their horse

The owner is a good friend of mine. Yes I am training the horse, but she lives a long way from where I do. She has asked me to look into this for her.

Midas is 3. He has dapples, but he has a lot of "everything else" going on too. It seems the grey, along with every other color, is really battling it out.



However, when I first bought him he was quite different looking. I've only had him for 5 months, so I really have no idea where his color is going. That's the beauty about greys... you constantly get a different horse :)
People used to mistake him for being black, a roan, or an appaloosa. Still frequently many people just "don't know" what to call him.

Either way it does not matter what other people think, only what I and his owner think. He is a training horse and the owner loves his dapples and wanted me to research to see about enhancing them.
Well it read like it was "ugly" and not dull.... which I took your comment to be about so many ugly grays.... Just saying:roll:

Ahh only 3!! Just a baby!! If it's the horse in your avatar, Shareef looked that way too when he was that age. Looks like a completely different horse now!!

Yup, he's just a little one ! He was born bay and has seemed to stay pretty dark, almost completely black, up until I recently bought him. Now he seems to be going through a progressive change - quickly. I've never owned a grey horse or had the opportunity to see a young one go through the routine, so its quite interesting for me to "have a new horse" every year .

He will probably dapple out and get lighter and lighter. Enjoy the dapples while they are there!! If you find any sort of magiv supplement to keep them, let me in on the secret!

I'll let you know if you're around in the years to come! However I live in Florida and even for any colored horse they easily get sunbleached. He's so dark now that its hard for me to think of him as being "white", guess I'll slowly get eased into it though lol.

He'll always be considered gray even when he's gone completely white, so you don't have to get used to thinking of him that way.

I have a fleabitten gray Arab gelding. Have I mentioned that I despise fleabitten grays? He's an exception since he's my horse.
