lots of grooming will help.
Use a dandy brush, then a body brush then a sheepskin glove or something similar to help bring a shine to the coat.

Also a healthy diet will result in a beautiful coat so make sure he is getting all the right things in his feed.

I think the horse is pretty cute as is, But yeah, lots of elbow grease will help.

It means that the horse is fully shed out and has it's summer coat. The summer coat is real slick, so that's why people say "Slicked off"

Good quality diet, a day rug covering part of his face, other rugs if it is cool...(don't overheat) and lots of grooming...(bring out the natural oils in the coat, will all help.
I would also give some seaweed meal (has lot of vitimins and minerals), and linseed...(make sure it is boiled) bring out the shine and colour.
