Cool Quic Black and Sunscreen

I was wondering if anyone has used Quic Black and/or Sunflower Sunscreen? I work at a feed store and we carry both of these products but I want to know if they work. He's not a show horse so it's not a big deal but I think he is just gorgeous when he's all black. I'm not interested in the fly sheets, its waaayyy to hot in S.E. Texas to put those on him, that's my opinion. I don't want to add stuff to his feed. Just askin' about the shampoos and sunscreens. Thanks

I've used QB and it is a very nice product. It brought out Blue's dapples that I never knew she had! It doesn't really make them midnight black though

That Sunflower Sunscreen looks interesting. I have a black mare that fades if I don't keep the sweat rinsed off. Saro fades out pretty bad in the sun too. I'll have to give it a try. I've been using Vetrolin shine just for the sunscreen. I would prefer something that's main job is sunscreen.

I used the Sunflower Sunscreen on my Friesian gelding and we both hated it. Didn't help the fading at all and left a tacky residue. Plus TJ must've hated the scent or something because he threw a fit when being sprayed w/it? Bleh.

I just started using Quic Screen and prefer that much more. Can't attest to it's fade resistance yet, though. I also like the Santa Fe Coat Conditioner which is SPF 8 (smells like beach sunblock, too...like kinda' coconut smelling!). However it's a low level and you work it into the coat (as oppossed to spraying or hand stroking on like a barrier) so you would have to use it everyday. The Quic Screen bonds to the hairs (on a clean coat) and is supposed to last for up to two weeks. We shall see.

My next product to try was Cheval International's Misty Sunscreen.

I also find that the heavy duty bug sprays that offer UVA/UVB protection work well, too. 'Cuz they are meant to bond to the hair and last for days! I use Endure.

I haven't tried Quic Black shampoo, but I want to.

If you really want an almost easy fix without buying products, you could just switch your horse's schedual, we did it today with our 3.

I know a lady that bred paints that when it came time to show, if one had faded would use hair dye lol... I'm guessing the white was a pain to mask off.
