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.

When I was horse shopping this on gal had a palomino she did that with, or something like that and it worked for him. He was dark and beautiful.

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...

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.

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.
