Have heard that a supplement with Carotene will cause my Palomino's coat to be more golden.

Anything to this and if so, what supplement would you recommend?

Where are you from? Cypress, TX

Re: Palomino

Hello Al,

Beta Carotene will not make your horse's coat more golden, I'm sorry to say. But, what will make it gleam and be its true golden color is a flaxseed meal based product. Take a look at Glanzen 3 -- it is excellent.

Thanks for writing!

Dr. Getty
