    SmartDark & Handsome® is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 261.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy pre-measured paks are great! I have only been using for a little over a month but can already see a difference in my horses coat.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works very well! I've had my chestnut gelding on SmartDark for over a year now. He's not a picky eater, and also gets another supplement that it can stick to, so eats it right up. Initial results take a while, so be patient! My boy's mane and tail are darker, and there are liver chestnut tones coming through. I DO keep him completely covered in a fly sheet from spring-fall, and/or turn him out at night to keep him away from saving sun rays.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not palatable I would have liked to have given this the full two month trial period but my horse just refuses to eat it. He is not a picky eater at all but not even molasses will convince him to eat this powder. He had no problem eating Black as Knight so I'm not sure what exactly was different about this product that made him turn his nose up at it. I can't tell you if it worked as intended (darker coat) as I don't think my horse was on it long enough or managed to eat enough of it to see a difference. Sadly will have to discontinue. Very strange experience for me as I've never had palatability issues with smartpak supplements before, with either of my horses, one of whom is a picky eater. I noticed multiple reviews on this product stating similar issues, so it would seem prudent for smartpak to revisit the formula and try to make it tastier.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from could be better I have been using this around 6 months on our Friesian mare and it does keep her coat darker but it doesn't come close to keeping it the beautiful jet black when it first grows in. I do plan to continue using it but wish it worked better.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Palomino going gold My TWH faded from a deep gold to a pale blonde when he moved from AZ to MI. I turned to this supplement and his color is coming back after just 6 weeks. He has a thick winter coat so I am looking forward to spring when he sheds out. So far so good- I recommend this product if you want to bring out the color and shine in your horse's coat.
