Look at it like humans. We stay out in the sun, we get burnt. Some burn faster than others. Even if you're the same shade as the person next to you, y'all may not burn at the same rate. The other person may not burn at all, while you're a freaking lobster(story of my life.) There is NO genetic difference in black. It's just black.

There on the tips of fair fresh flowers feedeth he; How joyous his neigh,
there in the midst of sacred pollen hidden, all hidden he; how joyous his neigh

Why is this discussion about black getting so heated its ridiculous.
Your horse is BLACK that's it and that's all. Fading or not fading doesn't mater there no known genetic difference so either way like its been stated to death she's still just plain old BLACK!!!!
And unless she had a parent with a creme gene she can't be smokey black. And the only thing so special IMO about a smokey black is she may or may not pass it to her offspring if she has any ever. And regardless if she has creme the result is the same she may get sun bleached. No matter what she is still BLACK!!'

I was just going to bring this up, look at it this way...I am a blonde, in the winter my hair gets darker because of less sun and in the summer it gets lighter because more sun BUT I am a BLONDE either way. It just changes

A "fading" horse is still a black horse. Because if you were to keep that same horse inside all day he wouldn't fade. It is a black horse but because of the sun he fades. Fading is the same color, there is no special difference. Your horse is black, black, black. Whether it fades or not.
