I have this horse.... he is fully rugged groomed atleast 4 times a week, washed every sunday. He isn't getting a shiny coat. He is in the paddock with his mate, (Quarab). So they have the same access to pasture, they get fed the same, same rugs, same grooming pattern. The Quarab has a shiny coat all year round, while the ASH doesn't. The Quarab is 9yr, and the ASH is 6yr. Why is this? They both have mineral blocks, and salt licks in their stables. And the ASH eats his quicker than the Quarab.
Its got me BUGGARED!!
Do you have any ideas?
