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 315.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Shiny but no darker I had high hopes for this, having had major results in the past with just paprika I hoped this would help keep my filly black. Unfortunately while she was super glossy I saw no improvement in color, in fact she seemed to bleach even faster despite a fly sheet and night turnout. This also seemed to give her diarrhea, though she has a notoriously sensitive tummy. Despite all that she still vacuumed up her food right away (She doesn't even like carrots or apples! so I would say this is fine for picky eaters.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well I started my guy on this mid-June as he got incredibly sun bleached. While I don't think that I've noticed him darkening yet as it's only been a month, but I have noticed it pull out the red tones in his coat, tail, and forelock. I'm loving it as it's making him more a blood bay!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Wonders!!! I started taking care of this handsome guy close to a year now and have been working on his coat mane and goal since I got my hands on him. He’s been looking really good but just needed a little extra something. And something that wasn’t going to make him hot. So we gave this a try! And it’s done wonders for his mane coat and tail. It’s not made him hot at all. It’s esdy to mix right in and smell as good too! I add this with LMF and just stated adding the loose red rock and my horse devours it. It’s add such shine and softness to not only his body but mane and tail as well!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not pleased at all. I usually feed my guy black oil sunflower seeds. I decided to try this since I use smartpaks and it didn’t work at all. He shine has decreased significantly and it definitely hasn’t helped him get darker. Even with keeping a fly sheet on he is still sun bleaching and getting light with this supplement. Definitely will not be using this supplement again, will probably just switch him back to BOSS. You can tell by my photo the difference. I love smartpaks but I am disappointed in this one.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bought after seeing results on another horse Bought after seeing results on another boarder's horse with an amazing coat who has been on this supplement for quite a while. One month in, I don't notice anything dramatic, but hoping it will prevent some sun-fading this summer and keep the shine on!
    Date published: 2018-06-20
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth it! I purchased this about a month ago and am already seeing a difference. My tobiano draft cross started shining up after only a couple of weeks and now I am already seeing that darkness in his coat -- and this is a guy who lives outside, at altitude, in Colorado where we have nothing but sun. The sun and wind had his coat looking pretty parched (a fly sheet hardly helped), but not anymore. Other reviewers have said their horses have that perpetual just-bathed look and I can attest to it being true! And, luckily, my horse will eat just about anything, so we have not had problems with the palatability of this product. All in all, I am very happy I tried this product; not only has it helped with his dry skin and coat, he is looking darker and shinier than I hoped he would after only about a month's use.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Difference! Ducky has been on this for about a month now. He came to me with is winter coat brown but head and legs deep black so I knew he was the potential to be jet black. I did my research and purchased this for my Smartpacks. His coat has improved so much from going to brown to jet black but also and incredible shine too it. He literally glistens! I love this product and so does he. He has never turned his head to eating it at all. Just take a look at the photo! Top is now bottom is before. We have a few stray brown winter dluffies on the belly but they are going away.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from very difficult to get my mare to eat it. I started my mare on this about a month ago, and while her coat's a somewhat better this year than the past two years (marginally softer + shinier), it takes *way* too much effort to get her to even eat it - she hates how it tastes, and kept trying to eat around it (pretty easy considering it's a crumbly/powdery-type supplement); I've been having to mix it with molasses and then hide that in her grain. Even with the added sweetness, she's been trying to get around it still and I know she's not been getting the Full Serving Size, so I don't know. I kind of wish this came in a pelleted form instead, since she'd probably be more inclined to eat it like that (ex. she and my other horse both prefer the pelleted Red Cell to the liquid version of the same product).
