So many of us all know that Cinny has been considered black this whole time. Registered black, he fades to bay in the summer...but still we have said BLACK.
But something else has happened with his color that leaves me a bit stumped and wondering if he really is a very dark dark bay. As far as I know if you clip a black horse, they will be black where you clipped because they are black. Is this correct?
Well, Cinny had his first blanket clip and well, he's NOT black where he is clipped. He is a light brown color, almost dun-ish I'm talking dark palomino or buckskin even. So does this mean he actually is a bay and not a black because he clips this color?
Here is a picture of his fresh clip. Please please do not critique my clipping....my blade went dull in the middle of my clip so he is really really blotchy. I am going to clean it up, don't worry.
