what is a good price for paprika? I got some at the health food store for $1.09 a lb. That is better than the grocery but really doesn't seem cheap, plus I just started it a week or so ago and they are allmost all shedded out. Should I just quit feeding it this year and start up next spring before shedding or continue?

Where do you get paprika in bulk and how much do you all pay for it?

You can stop feeding it for now, but towards the end of summer (around August here) they have a mid summer shed, they get a second summer coat. The paprika will work on that as well so you'll want to start feeding it BEFORE they start the mid summer shed (so here since I feed from spring before shedding to fall, I am covered, if I were just starting I would feed it now anyway) BUT, July would be better than August in my case. Even if you start now the coat will still receive some benefit from the paprika, although it might not be what it could have been had they been started before shed out.

I get my paprika at sams club in bulk, you can order online too...

I get mine from Sam's Club as well and it is normally around $5.50 for 18oz. Bottle. That lasts me about a month on 5 horses. I have 2 bays, 1 sorrel, 1 line back dun and a black and white. Last year the black and white was already starting to fade by this time, but he is still a deep black and a bright white right now.

I started using in on my flaxen chestnut Haflinger in about December (after reading your thread, HorseCrazyTeen!). I have definitely seen a difference! She's not completely shedded out, so we'll have to wait, but last year, she was so light, she looked like a darker palomino. This year, she's been on it since her summer coat very first started to come in, and she's stayed a rich bronze color so far. And, for the first time, she had dapples in January! She's kept them up til about a week ago. I ran out, and we didn't get any til a few days ago, so she's been off it for about 2 weeks. Her dapples aren't gone, but they have faded a bit. Now we have it again, so I'll see if they come back.

My friend's palomino varnish roan appaloosa is on it too, starting about the same time; early December, when she first bought her. We don't have any pictures from before, so we'll have to wait til next year, but she has gotten roaner since winter, and her she's getting more spots, instead of just smudging.

My dad gets it at Surplus Outlet. Not sure exactly the price, but he doesn't complain about getting two 4oz bottles "just for the horses", so it must not be too expensive! I feed about 1.5-2 tablespoons per cookie, since our horses are not on grain. My mare absolutely adores them! Paprika treats and carrots are her two favorite foods!

Wish I could find it that cheap around here! I'm paying about $5 per pound. I'm buying it at the dollar store because it's the cheapest way I've found to purchase it. I've found it online for about $2 per pound but after shipping it seems to be about the same as buying it at the dollar store. I end up spending about $1 per week feeding it to just one horse. I'm adding it to biotin with a little molassas and 1 cup of BOSS.

Black Oil Sunflower Seed

Used to put weight on horses because it is calorie dense but used in smaller doses for coat shine and hoof health. Very omega 6 rich. Although I've heard it's not good for horses with arthritis as it is an inflammatory.
