I read in this months issue of Horse & Rider that if you give your Palomino one teaspoon of Peprica in its morning and evening feed it will better its coat color to a deep golden. Anyone do this? Apparently zoos have been doing this for years with the flamingos to make their color more vibrant.
My father in law did this with his horse and we all thought that it worked at least a little but I could never tell because Cinderella (the horse) spent every chance she got rolling in the mud! She's turn over huge water troughs to make her own mud even - so eventually he quit. She was born to be messy not well groomed.
