A good all around supplement for internals (digestion, etc...) and externals (coat, skin, hooves..) is Equipride.

My filly is going gray, which was a little saddening at first because she is a beautiful grulla, but because of this I came to the realization that as long as she keeps her brain thinking on both sides and her overall sweet disposition, I don't care if she turns purple with yellow polkadots! You might want to have a converstation with the owners explaining that the graying process cannot be stopped nor slowed. If it's "the horse inside" they love, color outside shouldn't matter!

I think grays are gorgeous, I don't know why people consider it sad that their horse is going gray. Even the other day, a friend of mine said it's too bad my colt isn't a roan. Huh? I am much happier with him gray than roan. Roans never floated my boat.

Now do I wish he would turn the perfect shade of dapple gray and then I could "freeze" him that color, sure! But it doesn't work that way, and gray is a gorgeous color in it's own right. To me anyway. I will never make an excuse for my horses colors, no matter what shade of gray they are. The only negative about them turning white is they are hard to keep clean.

I used black as knight on my flea bitten grey arabian. Oh man! She had smokey knee high socks, muzzle and eyes smoked and she got dapples on her butt. It has been years since I used it and her muzzle and eyes kept the smokey coloring. Her coat in the sun was sooooooo shiny but when the sun hit it it was like rainbow colors, like snow in the sun. I was very happy!

I have heard of the Cheval silver horse supplement, but it is pretty pricey....also I have used paprika on dark horses and noticed a different because it changes the pigment of the hair when they are shedding out and growing new hair in. It won't work if your horse is already bleached out.

I am baffled on what to use...any ideas?????????

arabian, gray, grey, supplement
