    LOL! Yeah, not a remedy I'd use unless we were going to a show the next day or something. But if you can wait, the BAK starts working and you won't have that problem anymore.

    Thanks heaps everyone! :)

    Tlkng1, I love the before and after shots!

    I don't show, so the fact its not allowed isn't a problem for me at this stage... but why does it come up illegal?

    I'm definitely going to try the Paprika and flax seeds, Turkish Van...

    Has anyone had an experience with turmeric or sunflower seeds?

    Thanks again! :)

    Paprika tests positive for capsaicin, an analgesic, which is a banned substance in show horses.

    Does anyone know where to buy paprika in bulk? Online it looks like it's $11 for 5# but shipping is another $15. I'd be happy to pick it up locally, but no idea where to find the stuff lol.

    Just wondering if any of the natural supplements like paprika will help to darken the dapples on a grey pony? I was told by a friend to feed her pumpkin, but she's not keen on the taste.
