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 356.
    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.

    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.

    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.
