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!)

    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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great supplement I have used many coat darkening supplements and this one worked well and the horses eat it with no problem. I would recommend this product. The cost is more reasonable as well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hot Hawaii Sun is no match my horses have been on this supplement for a year after moving to Hawaii. they're on daily pasture, and if you haven't been to Hawaii before, it has a reputation of being sunny and hot all the time. it is! both my horses' coats look amazing. you can see sun damage in their manes and tails from older hair, but their coats are INCREDIBLE! if you haven't been impressed with this supplement, I'd guess its because you haven't had them on it long enough to shed/regrow their coat. stick with it, it works.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't do squat..period I tried this on my new horse for 2 months and it didn't do a dang thing. Very disappointed. Usually SmartPak is excellent.
    Date published: 2020-08-21
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Dark and handsome not so dark I’m not sure if this may have worked on my black horse if I had started it sooner. He was already starting to bleach from the sun. he didn’t get any lighter, but I also started putting a fly sheet on him , too. I wish it was a pelleted also, because the powder is so fine, I’m not sure he is getting it all. I may try again next summer sooner.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Might work for other horses? I started this before my horse started fading at all and noticed no change in his coat. He faded out much faster than he did the previous summer on Platinum. I used up a smaller bag and had already opened a new bag when we had to stop because it was suspected that it was exasperating current/causing new ulcers. After some research I found this was more common with paprika than I realized. Not only did I waste more than half a bag but I had already mixed it into his supplement cups with his other supplement, so I wasted that too. I know other horses it has worked for though, so maybe it really depends on the horse?

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works wonders My pony has been on this for about two months and it works like magic. He is so dark and shiny now!
    Date published: 2020-06-23
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I think it works well! Started using this with my horse when I bought him earlier this year. I wasn’t quite sure if he was officially “black” or not but this supplement paired with a UV fly sheet has kept him quite dark. The shine in his coat is unbelievable as well!
    Date published: 2020-06-14
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Seemed to be working but still faded My horse was doing really well on this supplement initially but it’s only June and he’s already fading out pretty badly. He’s never gone bay quite this early in the year before. He usually would stay black for a little while longer.
    Date published: 2020-06-03
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it and my horse too! Started this a couple months ago and it really darkened him up. Usually by this time of year he would turn from black to a burnt red... instead he turned more like a dark bay. Also, brought out a shine! Love the product and so does my horse!
