we have to keep our horses shaved in the winter, as they are all in heavy training for the summer show season. Which means... I never get to enjoy my horse when he's a thousand pound ball of fluff!!!

They are worked pretty hard in training... so they get quite sweaty. This means they are wet and cold for hours if they were to have their winter fluff. So they are kept shaved to dry quick and not catch a chill.

It's pretty normal for most horses to change colour. My QH mare was pretty much a Buckskin colour and now she's almost black (She's brown). I'm going to clip her right away so we'll see how she looks! Lol

Hello from Germany! Same here. Ours are shaved too cause of the training. Don't want them to catch a cold when they get all wet and cold. Take care! Feel free to give us a visit on youtube

It's not uncommon for body clipped horses to turn a lighter color. My jet black boy turns light grey when body clipped :) And my blood bay boy turns a grulla color (minus the dorsal ;)

To borrow from google images: ( Redirect Notice ), this shows the different colours a horse can change when clipped. My horse changes in the seasons as well, much duller and darker in winter than in summer.
Seems like a combination of the two for your horse.
