    Just the difference between a non-fading and fading black.

    I wouldn't obsess about keeping her black. Unless your doing upper level showing I highly doubt your going to be counted off cause you horse has a little sun fading. So don't stress yourself out or your horse.

    I won't be stressing me or my horse out, you don't have to worry about that.

    Please do share the scientific data that backs that up. Until you have that, it's only a theory...

    I know I am coming into this late, but from my experiences -like many have said- "Fading Black" is a environmental factor more or less. So I would suggest not blanketing her all the time, but maybe on sunny days, like if its a nasty cloudy day just skip it, obviously you'd take off the blanket at night so the horse doesn't get rubbing and all the stuff. I rarely blanket my horses since they are happier unblanketed and it's healthier for them to deal with the weather like their wild ancestors did, but I realize some people have their reasons...

    Bottom line is really its your horse your choice. She may fade no matter what, but your choice if you feel she's comfortable being blanketed so much, ok, just be cautious on really hot days as I know horses can overheat if they have the wrong kind of blanket on in hot weather.

    Btw: I love her colors and eyes, I think I have told you that before in other forums. But she is seriously cool.

    She is not a smoky black. A smokey black is really not even a black horse.

    Yes smokey black IS a black horse that has a cream gene. 99% of the smokey black horses out there look exactly like their non cream counterparts.
