If he has a dull coat, brushing it lots as much as you can will help alot. Also using your curry comb can help . There are also many supplements you can buy to help with there coat and feet

The coat is a reflection of the overall health of the horse. As he receives better care, his coat will improve also.

I totally agree with northernmama.The rescue I tookin had a dull coat and now that he is up to weight he has a nice shiny coat, that is just with a good feed.

Be sure to put him on a good deworming program as worm infestation also leads to a dull coat

Flax seed is good for putting a nice shine on as well as being full of Omega 3. BOSS(black oil sunflower seed) is also good, it's high in Omega 6. I prefer to feed the seed over an oil. I hate what oil does to the feed pans. ;)

Rice bran worked great for my horse.

He may need a good deworming regimine...especially if he's not been cared for in a while.

Yes health will put some gleam into him BUT I use Nu-Image with my horse and OMG, it was shiny before but now it is absolutely stunning and oh so soft, it feels like it has been conditioned over and over even when he is soooo dirty and dusty you can see the gleam thru the dirt and it still feels soft. I just LOVE Nu-Image. I seen results after 2 weeks. I use the Smart Pak where they pre pack the amount to give and mail you a 28 day supply. If you buy it in bulk of course it is way cheaper but I don't like measuring, lol. But yah, just a thought. :)
