How to get shine

So I was looking into buying coat supplements to help my boy shine even more. But i'm pretty sure there are things you can give your horse from around the house but I do not know what they are. Does anyone out there have any ideas what to give them to make them shiny.

I know a household remedy!

It's called ... grooming!!

Okay, all jokes aside ;)
I do mean it though. Every day, I bring the horses in and brush them, pick their hooves. We have had one abcess in 2 years, and the ponies are super shiny ;) I have heard things like cooking oil in their feed, but I've always been scared to put things in my horsies systems :p I don't have any recent pics, and It's dark now, but I'll post pics later!

I've always heard flax seed is good for their coat. I've never fed it though.
Our kids are pretty shiny even though we don't really do anything special.

Honestly, a supplement won't help unless you keep your horse SPOTTLESS to begin with.
It might make them softer, but not much shinier than they are to begin with.
The natural oils they have make them glitter (I'd know)
I don't have enough money for a coat supplement ontop of joint supplements
I've seen lots of horses on supplements, they were super soft but not shinier than my horse

You can use vegetable oil, flax seed, black oil sunflower seed. Those are some that I know of.

I find a high quality feed is all it takes for my boy to shine. I switched back to Purina Strategy recently and he is glowing.

Healthy coat and petroleum jelly

I to only feed a good feed. And my horses shine amazing. But those are supplements that I know of.

Late last summer I made a pact to groom Casey. Every day. Have been for 6 months. HUGE DIFFERENCE! Only times I have broken it was I was really sick (and I still usually would hoof-pick) or was gone. Sometimes when I don't have a lot of time I will just brush off mud and hoofpick, which happens 2-3 times a month.

Lexiie my horse is blinding white, so clean but he isn't shiny. He has a bit of sheen but actually adding omega 3s into your horse's diet can make their coat shinier.
