I've always wondered EXACTLY what Cinny is. His previous owner told me he was homozygous black, but I have learned that a lot of horse owners around here don't know a lot about colors, etc., including this person.
In the winter he is pitch black. The deepest black you could ever believe. He stays black most of spring but by the end of summer is more like a dark to light bay depending on how much turnout he's had and/or Black As Knight supplement. I thought if I posted some pics and a copy of his genetics the people who know more would know.
Another question I have is that his registration still has his 1 week old foal pic so I am thinking of sending APHA an update. Would it be best to send in Black Cinny, or faded Cinny in your opinion?
Here is his breeding. It doesn't say what his mom (Poteets Taffy Gun) is but she is owned by a friend and I know that Taffy is a Sorrel
