For a couple of years we had been manufacturing a custom blend that put together two very popular HorseTech products--Glänzen 3 and Bläckenall. When used together, the visual results were nothing short of stunning for black and bay horses. We had so many requests for this custom blend that we decided to add it to our line-up!
In addition to the deep, rich, glossy luster, you get all the hoof support ingredients found in a full serving of our popular Glänzen 3. When we brought Black 3 into our regular product line-up, we utilized Zinpro's 4-Plex EQ Performance Minerals as our sole source of organic trace minerals.
If you have blacks or bays, you're going to love this product. As always--free shipping and our full-satisfaction, money-back guarantee! Try it and see!
Directions for Use
Provide Black 3 to mature horses at the rate of two to four ounces (one to two scoops) per horse, daily.
Four ounces (two scoops) of Black 3 will provide optimal results for most horses. Serving size may be reduced proportionately for horses weighing less than 1,100 lbs (lighter breeds or younger horses).
Introduce Black 3 to horses gradually. Start with ½ scoop (one ounce) the first day. Gradually increase the daily dosage to the desired level over a 10 to 14 day period. Do not exceed four ounces (two scoops) per horse, daily. The enclosed ½ cup scoop will hold approximately two (2) ounces by weight when filled to the ½ cup line.

*Will Paprika Test Positive?
Paprika (a member of the pepper family) may naturally contain a low level of Capsaicin, a substance that is banned by USEF for use in competition. Please be advised and use discretion when using Bläckenall (or any product containing Paprika) in competition horses. While we have never had a report of a positive test as the result of using Bläckenall, we want to be certain that you are informed of the fact that paprika can be a source of naturally-occurring capsaicin.
To put the capsaicin potency of our paprika into relative terms, consider that pure capsaicin has a rating of 16,000,000 Scoville Units (a unit of measurement of capsaicin level in peppers). Our paprika typically has a Scoville Unit score of less than 150--quite a significant difference.
We know of some USEF competitors that will, as a precaution, remove products containing paprika from the diet at least 14+ days prior to competition. USEF protocol for testing has not been made available--so it has not been possible for HorseTech to establish a withdrawal period with certainty. So, competitive riders should use their own discretion. We generally advise--if a positive test will ruin your day, you may want to avoid products containing paprika!
If you have questions with regard to the use of our Bläckenall, please feel free to give us a call at

- Fantastic Product quickly produces rich blacks and shiny coats
When my black horse arrived last year, within two months he became a bay due to the high iron content in Oklahoma. I put him on this supplement and within 1 week saw a difference, within 2 weeks I was certain of the change, and now he's become a rich black despite our strong Oklahoma sun!
Because of the great minerals included in this I was able to cut back his zinc and copper from a pelleted supplementation product. This saved me money, in my overall supplements budget for my horse.
Another thing I immediately noticed, is after the switch from another flax seed (different co.) to Black 3, I saw a big change in his desire to eat the Black 3 over the other product. This makes less waste and less chance of him not completely eating his necessary supplements.
I've also given a smaller portion (compensated by weight) to my brown and white mini-pony, and her browns have become a deeper chocolate (though she'll never go black). This product helps her get necessary Cooper and Zinc with no extra supplementation as well as the Flax seed for coat and hooves.
My only quibble is that it would help those of use who do Hay Balancing because of PSSM, EPSM, IR or Cushings, to have the mg, % or ppm on the label for the minerals as we have to delicately balance all diet ingredients for these types of horses.
Overall though EXTREMELY PLEASED and highly recommend it!

- Only gave 4 stars for performance as that was N/A but I can say he seems to have more energy
Just wanted to say thanks for the samples you sent of the horse supplements. After using the first sample of Blackenall, Shadow's coat has darkened many shades and has even better texture and shine after I used the Black 3. Thanks, I am a satisfied new customer. I have owned Shadow for 10 years and never knew why his color changed so much on his coat. Who knew minerals made so much difference?
