Rather than hijacking the thread about shiny horses, I figured I'd start my own, even though its along the same lines.
I've never thought about coat much as my horse is a teke... And well, I don't think I could get her to not be shiny
But. I may or may not be getting a new horse and he or she may or may not be black
. And as I live in a hot place with loooads of sun, I wouldn't really want any bleaching to happen.
So, I read a little about adding paprika as a supplement... Then found out its a prohibited substance D:. We've never had drug tests here, but still.
Does it work?
How long before the show would you have to stop feeding it to the horse prior to the show?
What about coat enhancing shampoos- any recommendations?
Could you use dog shampoo on horses?
Its easier to find dog shampoo than horse shampoo here
Oh and just for fun: Shiny!
