I don't see Morgan at all, I'd say he's just a QH.

What people call faded black is probably most of the time brown. At?? for the agouti. Puts more black pigment over the entire body then just the points. Also they can be black with the cream gene (Smokie black) which makes them look like they are fading.

I have to agree with nrhareiner, he is a liver/dark chestnut. The main thing that gives it away is the fact that the farther you go down his legs, the lighter/more reddish they get. I would say all QH though sometimes it is hard to tell. He is a cute boy and looks like a really nice horse.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

I totally agree on the papers part. He is a honest horse and gives a honest days work and means the world to me. I trust him with all i have and it is very deserved. But ppl always ask what color he is and i always say dark brown lol and sometimes i feel silly cuz ppl will see him and question on why i say he that color. I know how to ride and take care of all my horses medical needs and basic care. But when in comes to colors and breeds i admit i am lost

There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it. ~Author Unknown

This is my Favorite colour of all!

"dark" liver chestnut

Very subtle differences but they are there. I'd go with a liver or "dark" chestnut. As for breed, I don't think morgan, maybe a cross, but he's most likely quarter-horse.[/QUOTE]
