Exactly A Smokey Black often just looks like a regular black (as the horse in the OPs Image dose) but they may have some fading or they may get slightly lighter with age.

Single Creme on darker colors is hard to notice without knowing both parents, or Gene Testing.

Not to highjack the thread, but what's the difference between smokey black and black? Just that the black fades? Also what is single creme?

ND sire is a cremello :)

Smoky black is a black horse with a single cream gene. One with two cream genes would be a smoky cream. It's the same as palomino and buckskin. Palomino is a chestnut with a single cream, cremello is a chestnut with double cream. Buckskin is bay with single cream, perlino with double cream :)

Way too confusing. I'm sticking with the basic colors

It's entirely possible she is a smokey black, but it would be impossible to say for sure without having her tested. I don't think she has the silver dapple/chocolate gene, it typically lightens all black on the horse and her body is too dark with no light hairs visible in the mane. There is SOMETHING going on to giver her that light tail, I am not sure if the cream gene would do that though. We have a smoky black at the farm and while he has a few white hairs in his tail it's nothing like that, and he is a very unique iron gray color. He has been tested.

Jacksmama because her sire is cremello, he HAS to have passed a cream gene on. She definitely doesn't look palomino, or buckskin. So that leaves smoky brown and smoky black. She doesn't have any "rusting" at her flank, elbow or muzzle, so that rules out smoky brown.

The Sire is Cremello (eeCrCr), and the mother Black (Ee, or EE) then you would either get Smoky Black (EeCrc), or Palomino (eeCrc)

I'm no expert on colors, but I think she's very pretty!
