If you are implying that paprika will compromise a horse's health Mls, that is incorrect. A horse will be no more or less happy and healthy if you feed them paprika.

What about a UV flysheet in the summer? I never used them because it seemed counter-intuitive to cover up a horse when it's hot, but I got my gelding a Weatherbeeta one and not only did it keep the buggies off him, it kept him dark and cooler than he would be without it. I boarded at a barn that had very bad flies.

Paprika contains Capsaicin which is a swabbable substance for competition so has to be withdrawn prior to competition.

I know that. My point is that paprika does not affect the horse's health or happiness. If you read my post a little earlier in this thread, you'll see my explanation of the capsaicin thing.

I can't say it enough: paprika does not harm a horse in any way shape or form. It's only purified capsaicin applied to the horse's skin that hurts them.

I like using paprika on my black based horses. Even my blue roan appy gets some. It defiantly brings out the shine in my mares

Eolith - I think I picked up the wrong quote

I meant to use ARTEMISBLOSSOM's quote

Paprika does in fact enhance the horse's coat. My friend uses it and it works.

However I would check with your local shows because Paprika is illegal in some shows.

I've never thought about using 'supplements' ( like spices) for a horse's health or coat.

Well, now that I think about it, I did read that peppermint oil can be good to help a horse's respiratory system...
