Supports deep, dark shine

  • Provides 3,600 mg of omega 3 fatty acids for healthy skin and a shiny coat
  • Also contains paprika, which is known for its ability to support deep, rich coat color
SmartDark & Handsome helps bring out a deep, dark shine in black, bay, and brown coats. This unique formula provides a targeted combination of ingredients specifically designed to help horses maintain their most beautiful coat color. Flaxseed serves as a high-quality source of omega 3 fatty acids, which support healthy skin and a shiny coat. Paprika, a spice rich in beta carotene and other antioxidants, supports a deep, rich coat color. Finally, 5 mg of biotin and minerals such as copper and zinc support a healthy, resilient haircoat. Plus, it contains fenugreek for a delicious flavor and aroma your horse will love! SmartDark & Handsome is ideal for horses with black or dark bay coats, but may also be helpful for any horse that has a coat prone to sun bleaching. It isn’t just for the boys, either – SmartDark & Handsome is great for mares, too. (We just couldn’t resist the name!)

    SmartDark & Handsome® is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 328.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delivers as promised Using this for about 3 months. Dark Bay Mustangs colors deepened wonderfully and great shine. I mix with a little bran mash and a few alfalfa cubes because he didn’t like the cayenne, but he eats it with this mixture no problem

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from No more orange horse! Short of keeping my tb in the barn 12 hours a day (not an option!) I couldn't keep his coat from fading and turning orange. Not tje 1st summer I've had this problem but the 1st summer he's been shown. It took about 6 weeks for me to notice the change but this has defiantly evened out his coat and taken most of the orange off it. Next year I'll start him on it in march before he sheds out so hopefully we miss the orange phase completely. The top pic is may before he turnes orange and the middle is June. The last pic is 2 months of taking Smart Dark &Handsome. I'm very satisfied!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great on black horse I have a black tb gelding. He fades every summer. I thought this might help stop the fading. He is still fading, but not as much and the black he does have is awesome looking. He's so dark! I think the fading comes from sweat anyway. I would ask for a sample for more picky horses, as some of my other horses done like it, but he eats it all up.

    Date published: 2019-06-18
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works! I have been feeding SmartDark & Handsome to my 6-year-old gelding for just a month now. It's working! He is shedding off, and his coat is sleek and darker than usual. We mix the supplement with his morning grain and a shot of flax seed oil so the supplement sticks to the grain. Otherwise, he tends to leave some of the supplement at the bottom of his grain bucket. I am very pleased and looking forward to seeing what he looks like in another month or so.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great results Only after 2 weeks I saw a big difference in my old man's coat. His winter coat is shinnier and softer and he loves it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great It worked very well! I have a black gelding that bleached out this summer and only had him on this supplement for two weeks before you could see Improvment with his color! He looks awesome!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Our boy absolutely hated the paprika Our geldings eats everything and is not picky at all. When he smelled the paprika, he looked very sad, and then tried to eat around it. Finally, he flipped his bowl and got very upset about the paprika. He did eventually eat his grain, but obviously, he was not happy. He has gastric issues and I am also worried about the paprika causing an imbalance or stomach upset. ....I've heard the real need is zinc and copper, balanced properly. So we replaced this with the 800Z new hoof supplement, which has all the biotin and Methionine for hoofs, but also a huge amount of zinc and copper, properly balanced, for coat. I will report back on how it works.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Coat restored! After just one month on this product, my warmblood gelding has gone from sun-bleached to his beautiful black bay coat again. He has beautiful dapples and incredible shine! Thanks...

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My mare LOVES it First summer with my mare and she bleached out pretty bad. Gave this a go and within a month and a half results were seen! She is a finicky eater and she will lick her bucket for 5 minutes after she’s finished eating. Her coat looks GLOSSY black. This is a supplement I’ll give to her all year long! It’s a little pricey but worth it! Going to try it on my bay next month.
