Mayonnaise is oil and eggs - both make the hair shinier, I guess that is why it works. I give underweight horses a cup of vegetable oil twice a day and beside them gaining weight they get a beautiful coat. Not sure if eggs are easily digested by horses, but I give egg yolks to cats and dogs that need something extra.

Wow. Those are great examples BarrelRacingLvr! Thanks for posting them; they sure convinced me. Guess what my horse's next additive is going to be? Lol.


By the way, how heavy is polly? My horse is 15hh and 970 pounds so I'm not sure how much is the right amount. Thank you!

She pushes 16.3ish it has been forever since we measured her and it has slipped my mind. And I am not sure how much she weighs, but she is big boned and stout mare. I would do 1-2 tablespoons for yours, for Scrat who is 15.1 gets 1 scoop but he never really changes colors like the other two.

Thanks! You helped me a lot. I'll probably start giving her one tablespoon and see how it does. Thanks again for all of your replies!

Are there any side effects or dangers to this? Would you feed it year round or just spring to fall?

Darkens real good too. I made low carb cookies with about 1tbsp paprika per cookie. One cookie a day for my Perch/standardbred.
