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. :(
I disagree. It did work for me. My horse is a dark bay. He's almost black in winter. Before I started using BAK, he would bleach out to a light burnt orange. As you can see from my avatar, which was taken in the middle of July, he's much darker and a more natural brown. The key is to start it at least a month before the sun gets strong. I'm in Connecticut and start in March.
