cinnamon to darken coat?

Has anyone used this method and did it work for you? I've heard paprika works but my horse won't eat it that counts "Black as Knight" out too. Any other cheap methods that work?

Probably the cheapest method is to invest in a lightweight blanket and keep the sun off of him. There is nothing you can give them that makes them actually go blacker I think, it just improves the health of their coat and prevents fade to some.

Bjb, a true black will remain true black even when exposed to all day sunshine, When there are reddish tinges it could be a defieciency in copper. If not a true black, then you are likely dealing with sun fade. My pally was in all day and out in the evenings to help maintain her color, otherwise she'd go from gold like a newly minted gold coin, to a bleach blonde.
