    Sweat will also help them fade. Rinse them off after every ride and it will help too :)

    Great tips! I have the fading problem with my black mare. She has white socks up to her knees/hocks. What do the supplements to do white markings? Any effect? Thanks!

    No affect, some people even use BaK on dappled greys so their dapples will appear more contrasting. If you show, make sure you get the show safe one because paprika will give a false positive.

    Very good info! My horses are pasture babes so keeping them out of the sun isn't an easy option. I'd never heard of some of these tips! Thanks!

    Wait, why would you color your horse black?

    I mean, from brown to black?
    Sorry, just wondering.

    It's actually mostly for show. Most people prefer black horses to brown ones and sun fading is usually uneven and can look pretty ugly. It's really only a superficial thing.

    Thank you so much everyone,

    My horse is stabled 24/7 and if he goes out its only for a little bit of time in the nights, he only gets worked by my trainer in the early hours of the morning and late hours of the afternoon. He is in full show condition and is currently getting preped for the nationals which are next year, im really keen to feed him the paprika, but don't want it to show up on drug tests, how long does it stay in the horses system for and how much should I be feeding him ???

    I feed my horse paprika and BOSS but I'll only see the results in spring when he sheds his winter coat. I'm sure his coat will be as black as coal but what I'm really interested in is how long it will actually stay that way.

    If it's like BaK you need to take him off at least a week (I would do a week and a half to be safe) I'm not sure about dosing though.
