I have to just take a minute to sing praise for SmartPak’s supplement SmartDark & Handsome.
I happened across a little flier for SmartDark & Handsome late last summer that came in one of GQ’s SmartPak shipments. Not three days prior to that, I had been complaining about how sun-bleached his coat, mane and tail were looking. Since this supplement was not too expensive (and to be honest, I loved the name! =D) I figured I would give it a try for a month or two and see if there was any improvement. It was incredible! Within 3 weeks, my dark bay gelding was already getting some of the sleek, dark sheen back in his coat and within 2 or 2 1/2 months, his mane and tail were looking less red and blond and getting back to a darker shade, if not quite all the way black. He gobbled it up — not that he’s a super picky eater — and looks great!
If you are looking for a product to bring some shine and dark color back to your sun-bleached horse, give this one a try! This is the description from SmartPak:
SmartDark & Handsome helps bring out a deep, dark shine in black, bay and brown coats. This unique formula provides a rich blend of Omega 3 fatty acids from Fish Oil, Flax Seed and Chia Seed combined with Paprika and Nutmeg. SmartDark & Handsome is not just for the boys – it’s great for mares, too. (We just couldn’t resist the name!)
Note for Competitive Riders: This product contains Paprika, which may contain trace amounts of Capsaicin.
Have a horse of a different color? We recommend SmartShine Ultra.
