    NDappy says the horse is black. Then its black. That's good enough for me.
    Those pictures show a black horse. Shalom

    Definitely black even from the clip shots. Nothing wrong with black I like black horses personally.

    I agree and black horses DO indeed fade. Most of mine look like buckskins by the end of summer. Shalom

    I love that he's black. I was just confused when the lady that owns his dam told me the color testing information because the color calculator says 100% bay and my brain started to hurt ha ha.

    He definitely fades very very bay. When we did the Dressage show at the Fair last year almost everyone did suitability because it was free and it was more like a judge's meet and greet/opinions. The judge was talking about the differences between everyone's horses, why they are different, why one gets higher points than the other and how many of us can make corrections. The whole time she called Cinny "THE BAY" lol. There were grays, sorrels, 2 black freisians, paints, appys and then Cinny was the only one with Bay coloring so everyone knew who she was talking about but I remember I kept wanting to yell HE'S BLACK!!! Ha ha.

    Every picture of Cinny I've seen, he has been black in. Does he do well in sheets? As in, doesn't destroy them. A sheet in the summer would prevent fading so much and keep him black. Or turning out at night.

    OH, I'm not worried about the fading. I used to be until his anti-fade supplements started messing with his already sensitive tummy. Now I just say "oh well."

    He does do well with his blankets and this summer I am going to be putting a fly sheet on him. I never did before because I was afraid he would get tan lines, I mean fade lines from the blanket :)

    You could find out the answer for sure with a simple $25 test :)

    We do not need a test we have Chillaa and NDappy. That's all we need when it comes to colour or genetics. Saves the rest of us from reading all the technical terms and attending classes or reading books on the subject. Shalom

    If the dam tested AA for agouti though, there is no way the horse can be genetically black... He'd have to be bay or brown because he 100% for sure got at least one agouti gene. My vote for brown, a very dark and pretty brown :)
