I show steers and heifers and we use Black Velvet from Sullivan Supply. I haven't tried it on my horse (a bay) but have been thinking about it.

OK, thanks, I couldn't remember if the color was in the horrible shalack crap we used to use to get the hair to stand on end(I am sure show cattle trends have changed) or if it was seperate, then shaleacked...lol

Some dyes/etc you put on before the adhesive, some have it in them...so both lol. Just depends on which product you decide to use.

I'm also wondering what I can do about this! My mare is dark bay/black and ends up an orangey color by the end of the summer. I've heard of quicblack and also gallop shampoos, and I wonder if they work! Also feeding paprika, but I'm unsure about this because I do show my horse and that can cause a positive drug test. (But I only show in open shows! :)

Truly-without cutting them off or dying them, nothing will change those horrible orangey ends. Paprika, even if it works, has to go through their system, then grow out their mane.......hope you have lots of time. Lol

Signature undergoing edits. Please standby.......
