    Mane wouldn't lighten out, I'm fairly sure. And I'm from NY, and know winter well (it's a week 'til April and they're forcasting four inches of snow). Ontario has similar, if not the same weather (in fact, we're practically neighbors... sort of) and the fading black horses at my barn don't fade. Plus, she has ginger-ish muzzle (at least in the second one - could be the light, though).

    Sorry if I seem argumentitive.

    I don't think you read any responses to your statement. I am not saying that the mane lightens in winter at all. I said that a mane doesn't shed like a coat, and any lightening in the summer will still be there in the winter.

    Please read responses before trying to assert your opinion.

    ;) I'm in North Dakota, so not much difference. If a horse is outside, un-blanketed, 24/7/365 they will sun fade in both the summer and the winter. Damage to the mane (fading) will not disappear with the seasons like the main color coat on the body.

    I have a buckskin whose mane and tail are sunbleached just like that. She's outside 24/7 in North Dakota also. Manes and tails fade and are more noticeable because they don't have a fluffy winter coat to cover it.

    Also the second fading black you mentioned as having a light muzzle is probably a brown horse, just very dark. Black horses do no have light muzzles, fading or nonfading.

    Um, before accusing me of anything, Chiilia, why don't you just consider the possibility that I did read every response. I do take offence to the fact that you are acting all uppity on me. I'm voicing my opinion from my knowledge, and think it is true. Rather than just saying, "You're wrong," why don't you say, "Maybe there is a possibility, but I'm not convinced."

    Just saying. Anyway, I've given you my opinion, and that's what CritterCountry asked for. If she tests the pony and I'm wrong, then I'm wrong. If I'm right, then you're wrong. What does it matter.

    I'm unsubscribing to this thread now, so see you around.
