Has he been gelded since you have had him? Or any other medical procedures? This will make them brown as well.
Stress will also turn them brown.

The Black-as-Knight is basically flax with paprika and copper. If your horse does not have deficiencies, it will not work. It is also illegal to use for competitions, because it contains capsacain. (sp?) If you want to try it, you have to give it before he sheds, since it only affects the new hairs that are growing in. I have also tried the shampoo, which is a complete rip-off. It is the same as QuikBlack. If you try QuikBlack, make sure to leave it on for at least 20 minutes.

The things that do help, are to do a bloodpanel and make sure your horse is not missing anything or under any physical stress. Feed a balanced diet, and add some fat source for a nice healthy and shiny coat.
Put on a flysheet that protects against UV rays as well. Keep it on all the time.
And, completely and thoroughly rinse your horse off after every workout, or anytime he sweats. The sweat will bleach the coat out faster than anything else!
Don't turn them out during the day in the summer,if possible.
