Black as Knight and Paprika

Is it true you can use Paprika to help enhance their black coat?

Yes, it is true. I just use black as knight, but I've heard just plain paprika works just fine.

I think it works on any color. It helps keep the hair from bleaching out in the sun. I'm going to try it out on my palomino when his summer coat starts to come in.

Ok good because I kept reading it everywhere and I started Max on it yesterday, I'm hoping it will help! He's bleached out from last summer :(

Can't you get disqualified at a show for using that?

Yes, you have to take horses off of it three weeks before you show, it isn't illegal, but it will give a false positive on a drug test for illegal substances.

If you used just paprika, how much would you use and how long does it take to start showing noticeable differences? How long does it take Black as Knight to start showing noticeable differences? I was really curious about using this at Dixie once. Fred, the black percheron, was almost completely brown from being bleached in the front stalls (the sun was always on him).

I also read that coco soya oil helped keep black horses from bleaching in the sun. No idea if that is so, though.

I'm not sure, my horse is on coco soya and black as knight. But Coco soya oil is really good for their skin and coat, regardless if it actually does keep them from bleaching or not.



I'm not sure about doses, smartpak does it for me.
