black vs smokey black

Hi all!
Can someone tell me what is the difference between the two by looks and genetics?


Thanks!

Black is black, fading or not.

Smoky black is black + one copy of cream. One copy of cream does not affect black for whatever reason. Thi is also why buckskins don't look like palominos.

They aren't distinguishable just by looking. A genetic test or parentage known to have guaranteed cream is the only way to know.
