It's kind of like icy hot in high doses.

In BAK and regular dosing, however, it USUALLY doesn't have high enough levels to test, and no where near enough to cause any kind of benefit.

Get it at costco or a resturant supply store, you can get a big thing of it for cheap.

I show from March - October anywhere from 1-3 times a month, I couldn't just take my horse of it two weeks before the show. Not to mention there's NO way I'd risk it, I'm not willing to take the chance to have my horse test positive when I haven't even done anything wrong.

You shouldnt use more than a few teaspoons of paprika per day. (Plus i dont think most horses would tolerate more than that.) I got a large container, and it usually lasted me a few months.

Good prices on paprika in bulk here: http://www.amazon.com/Roland-Paprika-Superior-Quality-5-Pound/dp/B000UY2CJS/
Since I am about to get a dark bay/black mare, I am planning to get the 5lb package. Since it's just $20 its way cheaper than BAK!

noooo!!

black as knight does NOT work. and it's expensive! the BEST thing you can do is give your black horse flaxseed. it works, and it works FAST. make sure to keep your horse in during the summer though, even sheets can't keep the UV rays from bleaching out his coat. trust me! i was so desperate for my black horse to be black again, i ended up having to dye him. he had purple socks for a month. :(

Have you considered a light weight sheet and a spray on sunscreen or a color enhancing shampoo?

BAK has paprika in it. Fail on their part!

I've got a lovely bunch of Neuticals,
There they are all standing in a row
