Unhappy A magicv shine beauty bomb for the hair, what can that be?

My horse has incredible 'not shining' coat. His mane and tail is looking like it's allways dirty and dry and his coat lost all shine and beauty. He came to the stables 1 week ago and he's fat and fresh but looks like a old, weak or sick horse. I'm thinking if someone know what I can do to get his coat fresh again like he was last winter, but he is a total reverse to the last time I saw him!

Brush a lot, give less baths, and feed good hay.
You should see how shiny my old mare got with just that!

Some horses loose their bloom over the winter, when it's harder to find good quality forage. My advice to you is to be certain that he's getting the best quality hay possible, pasture as the grass comes back, and perhaps reassess his grain ration (if applicable) and make sure that his nutrient intake is well balanced. A shiny coat comes from the inside out, and no amount of shine in a can can replace good nutrition and condition. Fat does not equal excellent nutrition/condition. Also, check into his deworming schedule. A worm load can produce a duller coat. His teeth may be the culprit as well. If the horse isn't chewing efficiently, nutrients aren't absorbed well.

If minor diet changes and increased grass intake as spring progresses don't do the job, you might look into a feed-through coat supplement. However, I've never met a horse yet who couldn't be brought back from a dull coat with minor feed adjustments, regular and correct deworming, and a daily dose of elbow grease grooming.

Good luck!

Flaxseed oil (I use Animed Flaxseed Oil ) and a bath with neutral Ph shampoo. I always use Mane N Tail Pro-Tect Medicated Shampoo for the first bath after winter, as it cleans out excess oil but also attacks any grossness (ie. Bacteria, yeast, mold, fungi that love grossness).

Flaxseed works from the inside out and the medicated shampoo cleans on more than just a cosmetic level.
