    Now I do have another question. We know how the smutty/sooty gene can even make palominos look really dark. I wonder what it would do to a brown with it? And have they decided mealy does not work on black-based horses? I know they used to say what is now brown were blacks with mealy.
    The general feeling is that mealy does not act on black. I have my own theories regarding mealy on browns and bays, and also regarding sooty on black based horses, but without an extensive testing spree, I can't further my theorising
