Thanks, I don't think she is cream either, but with all the brown going threw her coat, I was wondering... a few days ago I gave her a bath, and her brown was even more visible then usual (although her legs and face got even blacker). So just so we are clear... even if she does come up non agouti, means she isn't nessasarily a true black, she can be a different colour, but isn't brown or bay?
Also, I am sorta having this debate between someone (not on here) about genetics. She was telling me how a horse can produce ANY colour, no matter what. She told me this story about how two famous jumping horses that were both 'true blacks' bred and came out with a cremello foal. She said that back in their lines there was cremellos.
I told her that colours don't skip generations. I said there are only 2 possibilities for this. 1. Both horses were smokey blacks. 2. It was a lethal white foal and died within a few days. I also got in to talking about how you cannot get a double diluted foal from breeding to two non diluted horses, and you had to have at least a double dilution to get one (whether it is 2 single diluted, or 1 double diluted) and got into more details about that.
Am I right, or is she? It is not a whos right and wrong thing, but I am just wondering so I don't get things mixed up.
