    Kelp works MUCH MUCH MUCH MUCH better!!!! Kelp is a great all around supplement that supports everything from coat health to reproductive health and more. And it isn't illegal in competitions!!!!!!!!!! I use kelp on my palomino mare. She turns gold in the summer like she should-even when out in the sun. Give him 2 ounces. You could probably do 3 and then move to 2 when you see a difference. Too much though can cause "Bend Or spots" supposedly... My mare has a few but it is common in palominos-I also give her 4 ounces because I'm trying to get her even more gold. The spots don't bother me so it doesn't matter. Paprika is stupid to use because you have to start and stop all the time before shows. Don't take the risk. Please! And I have noticed horses like kelp better too...

    Be careful - you can overdo many vitanins and minerals if you over feed kelp

    Subbing. Thinking of trying this on my bay paint to see what happens... I've always been fonder of the darker bay color.
