Another INTERESTING color pattern...? Anyone have any idea?

I took a pic of my black breeding stock paint mare this summer because I saw something that caught my attention. I had since forgot to try to find info until I joined this forum and started seeing all the odd color patterns. Lol Too easily distracted, I guess.....ADHD maybe. Lol

This is my mare.

This is a strange pattern I noticed this summer (first full summer in a new pasture, new hay, and new grain supplier). What is this?

Not sure why the last pic blurred, that's why I posted others.

And this is a patch on her front leg near her elbow.

She just looks like a faded black to me. Or she may very well just be brown. I'm not a color guru but that's what it appears to be.

It could be sun fading, but I've had her for 8 years and have never seen these before now. That's why I mentioned different location and different feeds since I know EVERYTHING plays a role in a horse's appearance. Lol

Oh, and she is black and throws black foals.

Oh, and my daughter mentioned that there is a really creepy face in the pic of her upper leg. Lol

Do you have any winter pictures of her?
    11-02-2012, 09:26 PM
I'm looking for winter pix, but I HATE winter pix, so I don't take them often. Plus, the power supply went bad in my desktop computer and I bought this computer to get me by until I had time to take care of the other. Lol I'm looking though. Might have early spring pix.

Her sire is homozygous black (heterozygous tobiano) and her dam is non-agouti sorrel QH, though.

Found one pic of her from February 2011. She's kinda far away, but if I find another, I'll post it.

Thats so weird, something like that happen to a horse I sold to my friend, she was all black and after about a year or so at her new place she got an orange patch on her belly. We have no idea what caused it. Im not even sure if it still there. It was a couple years ago, but I should ask her.
