    The copper deficiency is an interesting thought.. I've never looked into that.

    But in regards to the bay, we had a holsteiner at our barn who was just as dark as this horse is, no distinction between coat and mane/tail except some brown flecks near her flank and she was registered as a dark bay. I guess it depends on the horse!

    Thanks for all your thoughts I wish I had better pictures. From what I can tell he is pitch black everywhere apart from those few small areas that look really dark brown. On the board at work that has info to help identify horses and know where they are, it says he is black. So I would assume he is black on his registry, he is thoroughbred in training for racing.
