But for the average horse person .... that horse is black.
Thanks for your opinion.
Although you may want to read this:
There are 3 types of black horses, jet black, fading black, and smoky black.
Smoky black isn't really a black horse though, it is brown with a black tinge.
Jet black is a black horse that does not fade unless it is poorly nutritioned.
Fading Black is a black horse that can have a brown or reddish tinge from the sun dying it, and its mane and tail can have brown highlights to it.
I wanted to know other peoples opinions on her colour so thank you for yours. But I, myself, still call her black, and same with others too.
