Question for Palomino Owners

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.

Interesting! I have a red dun that's kind of a peachy color. Think it would work on him? I just may have to try it...

I have heard this works also,but be careful if you are showing because I think it does show up on a drug test :)

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.

Thats quite interesting. My palomino doesn't need it. She is naturally extremely dark and deep gold.
