Maybe :) it could also have something to do with the cold... I know changes in temerature makes my skin go dry. Maybe hot oil him?

I have never heard of Red D Vinity... but I had a quick look online at it. It has quite a bit of sugar in it (molassas and pure cane sugar) soyabeans (which give a nice shine), hay, seaweed, as well as paprika. Not much other than the paprika I saw in the ingredients would darken the coat. Everything else is for shine not deepness of colour.

Also I just remembered, Black Sunflower seeds will darken the coat too - and add crazy amounts of shine. Just be aware some horses find them heating.

Hmmm good point about the temp! I haven't really had him long enough to know how he changes seasonally! I saw that and some of the reviews said it made their horses hot which is something I'm not interested in having lol

Do the sunflower seeds need to be shelled? I feel like that might be a little hard for them to digest if not. Or does it come in an oil form?

Haha :) Hot horses are not all that fun. I now ride one of mine with a neck strap just incase I need it when he has had time off.

We can buy them already shelled at the stockfeeders over here. They look like this. We can get them separated into the normal grey colour or just the black ones.

Interesting! I am going to try and find some of those! Do most horses like them? How much do you feed your horses? My horse is around 15h, and built wiiiiide! Lol

I haven't met a horse yet who hasn't eaten them.

Mine gets 1 cup per day. I feed twice a day, so 1/2 a cup per feed :)

Sounds pretty manageable! I can't wait to try this! :) Hopefully since his summer coat hasn't come in yet I will be able to tell the difference! I'll be sure to document the process lol

What kind of time frame would you suspect seeing results if any? Sorry I'm one of those impatient people! Haha! I read they don't have to be shelled and that the seeds on the Black Oil ones are softer than oats?

The new coat growth should be darker, there is not much that can be done to the colour once the hair has grown. :)

It's not a dye, it is meant to enhance what is there already.
I am well aware. I just haven't found it to enhance anything, other than glo-white works for all coat colours. I used it on a buckskin once and it really brought out the gold in her coat.

Re the bleaching stuff, it's not bleach as such, it just gets out the really stubborn stains. Better than baby powder, chalk, cover creme etc. Considering I never wash either of my two except for the night before a show [or morning of if I don't have to get up stupidly early to get to said show anyway], stubborn stains are a fact of life! It also keeps the dirt out overnight which is awesome because I haven't got a sand-free area that STAYS sand-free.

I have had cover creme hide blood before [horse nicked himself while scrambling in the trailer, was extremely minor but on a white sock so it looked a lot worse than it was!] but I had to re-apply between classes because it kept coming off in the grass. Rather get the hair really REALLY white, personally... JMO of course. And I don't hack often, maybe one show a year, so it barely ever gets used.

A CLEAN SLATE FOR THE FUTURE
