Definitely fading black IMO. If he were red based, I would definitely expect at least a paler coronet band, but he is dark to the hoof. As far as the fading in the soft points, they don't seem hugely lighter to me. As well as that, I would expect far more change from season to season if he were brown, but he is fairly consistent in colour from what I can see.
Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.
