Actually Chiilaa, horse furs often get exposed to the sun 80 percent of the day, and the suns radiates that bounce off of any direction you can think hits the horse horses body. When their fur is being reflected off the sun the skin particles in build up and start to rise after the heat of the sun has had a chance of heating its body up. The colour of the horse that was originally made, then fades with all the other particles releasing from the body, thus creating shedding. Comes off as an under coat of a different colour that its suppose to be. Now the suns heat particles become more heated up in the summer time than winter. For many reasons putting aside. Did you know that?
Horses coat come in all different shapes, colours and different DNA is involved. Become that the mare theat the horse was born with has a coat that is almost like her foals.
Now Chiilaa, this is not facts this is science mixed with a girl who is right for what she knows. :) I just find it so cool how their coats have stories to them ;) lol
