How do I darken my paliminos coat?

Yet another grooming question, I have a very light coloured palimino. In the summer he is somewhat darker but if I could and some shine and little colour his looks would not clash so muchYa I know I am really shallow about my horses looks. So any feeds I could add to his diet or a shampoo? I figured I should find some thing now since the holiday has so many sales. What about flax seeds? BOSS?
Thanks

Umm.... I don't think you can darken his coat with anything. Its not like human hair dye, ya know? He is beautiful, already!

I wonder if show touch-up may work ? They have one for specific coat colors, like palimino's.

Give that a try ?

Sunshine will only make it lighter. I guess I should be happy with him.
Question: I blanket him will that effect his shedding out? Will his coat just go threw a normal shedding period?

Livermol... not sure what colour it would make a pally though but it makes my Bay a real red bay

Don't know if its an NZ product but surely you have the equivalent over there

Surely some showies from over there should know - will find a link to livermol BRB

This is strange. But I have read in a couple places and seen that adding paprika (that red spice) in the feed (about a tablespoon a day) can really brighten up a palominos coat. I don't have a pally, so I've never tried. You can buy bulk paprika in like Sam's Club or whatever.
