Darkening Supplements If going to show...
I want to show Nova this year in bigger shows...I wanted to use a darking supplement such as black as knight because of where she bleaches.. but I know that can show up as a false negitive on drug test... is there anything else I could maybe use?? Where would I get it.. etc!
I know I could throw a fly sheet on her a light colored on but honestly.. I dont know how long it will last against other horses.
I just go this in my email today, it looks like a new product.
Might be worth checking out:
SmartDark & Handsome - Horse Skin & Coat Supplements from SmartPak Equine
I got that email too. I wish I had a dark horse just to use it on because I like the name. Baha.
SmartPak makes some good products. You could call them if you have any questions; they have fantastic customer service.
I got that email too and thought it sounded like a cool name too!
That smart pack stuff has capsaisin which I believe shows up on a drug test so thats a no go lol. I would probably feed a fish oil supplement for a shiny coat. and just try to keep the sheet on during the day and allow a pasture with shade if possible. This is why I don't show haha.
I did some research and the cheval international company that makes "Black as knight" offers a show horse formula that does not contain illegal ingredients. You just need to specify when ordering.
It's near the bottom of the page.
Makes me glad I have a chestnut now...hahaha...but then, I didn't really care either way, even when I had my bays... I just hate spending so much on different supplements! haha!
I would try sheeting her...that is the simplest, and you won't test pos. on drug tests.
Oh, and just make sure she is getting adequate levels of copper; being a dark colored horse, she requires more than other lighter colored horses...most people forget that, and it's a simple thing to ensure some 'color protection'!
black sunflower seeds are quite good for darkening a horse. not sure if they would show on a drugs test or not though.
I was just about to say just what Christine did!
I also find it helps to use a UV blocking fly sheet, and bath/condition with a UV blocking shampoo and conditioner, like vetrolin's "solar guard".
