Some of you might now about Luca, the gelding I got for free when he was 5 years old. Well, I have been wondering...
In Luca's sale ad, it stated that he was black.however when I posted some pics on the HF, some members told me he was brown. Now, the farrier (who's also a horse owner) told me that Luca is actually a genuine black horse and that he's quite rare! Who should I believe??? Here is Luca.
This is him right now:
He is lighter around some points and his mane is sun bleached, it was pure black in winter.
This is Luca about a month ago, when he still has a little bit of winter fluff on his back:
And as you can see here ^^^^, Luca's muzzle was lighter. (and he was skinnier because I didn't have him for that long yet and he was even worse when I got him :( )
Here he is when it's winter. He looked like a bay/brown to me:
Poor Luca It was heartbreaking to see him so skinny. But he had spirit. And that kept him going!
Now here's the pic that makes me think that Luca is indeed brown:
He still had the tiniest bit of winter coat there...but still.
IS LUCA BROWN.....OR TRUE/FADING BLACK?
My guess is that he's either brown or fading black because he looks like he is definitely NOT a true black horse. The farrier thinks fading black because his legs are pure black right now. Umm....aren't they black in brown horses too? I don't know...What do you think???
