    I've been feeding Snickers paprika since late February/March now. He's now shedding and I can see that his summer coat will be darker than ever! Can't wait until he sheds out completely. I'm feeding him 1tbsp/day.

    Here is a thread I started last fall about the whole paprika thing. I encourage you to read the entire thread as there is great advice throughout it all!

    Paprika for horse coat color enhancement?

    Just a tid-bit. I found this thread interesting and read the other thread on paprika too. No one seemed to know how long they had to be off it to not fail the drug test. I researched it a bit and the general understanding is 7-14 days.

    That being said, I don't show and I'm going to try this on my horse simply out of curiosity. Didn't find anything that said it could be harmful at all so why not?

    No too hijack your thread or anything but I was just about to ask this same thing! My horse Shaggy is black but he looks like a bay in the summer! I hope its not too late he started sheding about three weeks ago. How much do I give him and how do I feed it?

    It seems like the most common dose is 1TBS per day. Some give up to 3TBS but I think they started out slowly with 1 per day. In reading other threads and articles on paprika some people just put it in with grain, some make cookies, and some (which I will prob do) stir a little molasses in it and feed it that way.

    I'm going to try it on my bay this year too. He is just starting to shed out now so I don't think it's too late to start. I'll post before and after pictures in a couple of months I think. Maybe someone should start a before paprika thread for everyone who is planning on trying it this year...

    Thanks! Making cookies sounds like a good idea. If its in the shape of treat shaggy is going to eat it lol

    I just throw it in with feed dry (once a day, 1 TBSP) both my horses lick their feed pans clean. Seems most logical for me, I don't have to do a bunch of baking or estimating measurements for cookie making and whatnot, measure 1TBSP, toss over feed, good to go.
