Eh, in that picture, its hard to tell, but the one where you can really see his eyes, and how charcoal his body is compared to his forelock, It makes me wonder.

I understand smoky cream is black based with 2 cream genes, but the one in the above picture does look very dark, and has a more crispe, darker coloring, the actual smokey cream foal below looks very cream to me.
The stallions looks typical black to me no champagne dilution. Only thing I notice is a bleached out black. And smokey blacks can more more prone to sun fading.

The ones outside, in natural light, are far more accurate.


I agree the first ones I took are sucky lol. It was pretty much..."OMG, she had her baby, better go ahead and get pics with my cell phone" and then after that the camera I brought down kept messing up and was pretty much useless. I should have dug out my nice Canon SLR and gotten some reeeeaaal photos!

Can only see one photo here.

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.

He is not sun faded at all, He is kept stalled. His face may be some because he pokes his head out his window in the back a lot, but the rest is not.

I can tell you from actually seeing him in person, both in and out of the stall, ridden, etc. that he looks nothing like this.

I didn't mean it was his twin, just showing there are darker variations.. you said he was faded, but kept up.. 1 cream gene wouldnt do anything to the coat-- maybe if he was sun faded.. champagne dilutes the coat..
