You can also rinse them with a cream rinse that has UV filters to help protect the coat as well as mane and tail. The mane and tail don't have to be done as frequently as the body. You dont have to go fill on and bathe them everytime just a good rinse with that added after getting the sweat gone.

For what it's worth, I gave my mare a little paprika today with her "treats" and she didn't seem to taste it at all. Or if she did, she didn't say anything. Probably less than a tablespoon full, I wanted to give a small amount just to see if she objected and she didn't.



So......I guess I will try the paprika trick. I don't think it will hurt, it's inexpensive, and well, it's the perfect time to try it because shedding season is getting ready to start. It seems like most recommendations are for 1-2 tablespoonfuls. I really didn't see any down-side to trying it.....right? I mean, it's food and I eat it myself (albeit not everyday).

Sounds promising for after-ride rinsing in the summertime.

Black. Very very faded.

She may carry cream, she may not. There is no visible phenotypic difference between black and smoky black. Single cream does not affect black pigment (or else buckskins wouldn't have black points!). Double cream does, but there's massive overlap in double cream phenotypes. You cannot accurately phenotype cremello vs perlino vs smoky cream.

Fading (as well as the light ear fluff formerly attributed to cream) is more likely to be due to nd1 than cream.
And nd1 is a mutation at Dun. All horses are Dun, nd1 or nd2 (or any combination of one or two of the above). An nd1 will have primitive markings but little to no body dilution (thus, not dun), whereas an nd2 has no primitives and no dilution.
