I'm thinking about doing this, as well. But I have a couple of questions..Does it help with a palomino's coat, as well? Also, will it cause any tummy problems if I start him off with 1 tbs a day, mixed in with his 12% sweet feed?

Nothing of worth comes with ease. <3

May make his coat more yellow gold and also I doubt it will hurt it at all.

I have never heard of the paprika thing before...but I am going to have to try it :)

So I started Comic (bay) and my dad's horse Red (sorrel) on Paprika yesterday. They both tried it then spit it out! I put a little bit (only a handful) of sweet feed plus 1 cup of BOSS and threw in the paprika. Rejected! Had to add molasses and even then it wasn't taken well. Today I mixed Comic's with his biotin and molasses before adding it to his BOSS, mixed Reds with molasses also before adding it. It was accepted better this way. I think they will start to get used to it and it won't be a problem after a while.

My husbands mare, on the other hand, licked all the loose paprika out of the bottom of the buckets yesterday.

This will be my first year on the paprika and the BOSS so I'll let everyone know if I'm seeing a difference in a couple of months.

My horse is completely shedded out now. Would it still help to give it to her?

Hopefully someone with more experience will answer but from what I understand you need to start them on it before they shed out. It doesn't darken the coat it just keeps it from getting sun bleached. It's like an internal sunscreen. This is my understanding. Someone correct this if it's wrong.

Darn! Well, thanks a lot for the response. I guess I'll start it next year, then.

It will keep any coat from sun bleaching.

Started my palamino and black and white paint on paprika in Feb. Palamino is almost completely shed and is very gold, looks like a different horse. Black and white can't say I see any color difference, he seems to be truely black. Both of their coats are very shiny. Wish I had good photos from last year to compare. Will have to take some through the summer to see if the color lasts. I feed a heaping tablespoon each mixed with wet beet pulp work well this way, they didn't like it sprinkled dry on their evening feed.
