Overview

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 359.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A picture is worth a thousand words I started my TW on this supplement during the winter when I noticed his winter coat was black but he looked dark Bay when I bought him in May 2020. Well almost exactly a year after I bought him it's clear, he was a sunbleached black horse, not dark Bay! Love this supplement! I do wish it was a pellet instead of powder though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great service Bought this about a month ago. Supplements seem to be working great. Love the ease of the smartpaks and autoship of the refills. Highly recommend!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Probably one of the best "Darkening" supplements I've had my horse on Smartflax since September but normally he gets pretty bleached out in the summer. Figured I would try Smart Dark & Handsome since the price wasn't much different. I clipped my horse in mid November and then clipped him again at the end of march. The difference was night and day! I will for sure continue using this product as long as he keeps eating it. I have noticed the past 2 weeks he's been a little picky about it. If this came Pelleted it for sure would be all eaten.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 50/50 My horse has been on this for about three months now. I haven’t noticed his coat darken much but it is definitely super shiny however he has kind of stopped shedding and his coat is still on the longer side. I’m incorporating another supplement to hopefully darken him and help him shed. It also has helped bring out his shine but not so much on the darkening.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well, take a while. I have been feeding this supplement to my black bay 17 year old tb gelding for about two years now. I decided to feed to help impove coat quality and overall nutrition. I continued with the supplement with only slightly different results as time went on, I was satisfied but not over excited with the product. However as his new winter coat came in following this summer, which had not bleached nearly as much this year, was outstandingly darker. I am thoroughly happy with how his coat has now improved with the supplement being in his system for an apparently adequate amount of time to make a difference.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works! We are so happy with the Smart Dark. We saw results within the first 5 days! Other products took at least a month. The best thing we’re the compliments on the health and her vibrant coat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This stuff is MAGIC My pony is a black Friesian x QH. He used to be out in pasture all day in the summer and so his coat was sun bleached and he looked brown. I bought this a month ago and wasn’t really expecting much of a difference. I have been blown away by the results! He is back to being black

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what it says I bought an underweight spotted draft horse in August. She is registered as black and white but was more of a bay & white. I started her on this supplement about a week after I got her on August 2. She is definitely darker in the 7 weeks she has been on the supplement. I will continue to use this product.
Date published: 2020-10-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Holy cow this stuff WORKS Two weeks after starting the supplement my beautiful black horse turned back to black! Wow! Everyone at the barn has commented on how healthy and shiny his coat is - even my a-circuit trainer asked what he’s on so she could get her dark horses on it. Really impressed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It really works! A picture is worth a thousand words. Here are pics with similar lighting, June to September.
