There is a horse at work that is black but can a black horse have brown on it? He is in a stable almost 24/7 with a rug on all the time and it's winter. The other day he broke his rug and I saw him without a rug and he looked a bit browner on his flanks and belly. From what I have seen though his face is pitch black no brown.
I'll put the only pictures I have up of his face just so you can see. The first horse is (scar) the black horse I am talking about and then a brown colt (Battery) what I am comparing him too. Sorry about the bad lighting. Thanks for any help.
