Product Overview

Supports deep, dark shine

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!)

  • 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

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Change My black horse had a terrible coat. It was dull, splotchy and an ugly gray/brown. Within WEEKS of using this product, he is now jet black and super shiny. Would highly recommend

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horse Will Not Eat Unfortunately I'm unable to say if it works or not. My horse will not touch his grain when I put this supplement in his feed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing!! I bought this randomly two years ago thinking it wouldn't make much of a difference and oh my, I was wrong! I give it daily during shedding season and into the summer and my geldings coat is shiny, sleek, and beautiful! This supplement has really helped to darken his legs to jet black like when he was younger. It makes a huge difference and I highly recommend trying it!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Didn't do what I was hoping How it started (top picture) and how it's going (bottom picture). I started him on it before shedding season started, but I won't be reordering. He has a large turnout and can go as he pleases from his stall. He was even in a fly sheet until the heat wave we had was just too much. I think this supplement would work well for a horse on night time turn out and stalled during the day. Strong odor, but he's not very picky.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nice dapples but didn't prevent bleaching My horse is in 24/7 field board turnout. He doesn't wear a sheet because it is too hot and humid where I live. I started him on Smart Dark and Handsome SmartPaks in April and the picture below was taken on July 24. You can see he has nice dapples but is still very bleached/orange colored. I discontinued the SmartPaks and will just have to embrace his color. My horse had no problem eating the supplement, but he has been on other strongly-scented supplements and doesn't mind them. YMMV.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Results! My American Saddlebred came to me from a less than perfect situation and was not in the best of health. I was anxious to get her in tip top shape, so after the vitamin supplement I was anxious to work on her coat. I didn't realize how bad it was! She has been on SmartDark for several months now and the results are stunning!! The browns, blacks and copper are shining thru...who knew?? Her mane has so many colors...there is even a beautiful cream color and some gold in the new growth. And the tail is full and swishy...I am obsessed with her tail! And that incredible shine gets comments from everyone that sees her. Because it is a powder, I mix it with applesauce and some sliced banana or chopped apple. Also, I add her other SmartPak pellet supplements and a few drops of EquiSweet for her mid morning snack. She sure lives up to her name, Pretty Girl.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Was skeptical, but HUGE FAN! I have used this off and on for my black gelding who lives out 24/7. When he went off of it for the winter, he immediately got this horrible flaky dandruff that I could never get rid of. I just recently started him back on smart dark and handsome for the spring, and the dandruff immediately went away and he is super shiny, dark, and healthy looking. Makes a huge difference!
