the red-orange could just be bleaching from the sun, does he only get that in the summer? my horse is a dark bay, and from pictures i saw he would be like sandy colored tan, but he isn't like that anymore because i put him on dark horse coat supplement. he is probably just really dark brown, and he bleaches out in the summer.

Looks faded black to me, my black mare looks just like that if she doesn't wear a blanket in the summer. Her neck, face and mane are already a lot lighter than what's under that blanket.

She looks like a black to me that's faded. I live in florida, and unless you keep a black horse stalled, they turn "liver chestnut" due to sun bleaching.

I would say black but look at the skin where the hair is thinner to get a better idea. I know a gelding who was "winter black" because in summer he bleached so much he was pratically bay!! XD

Bustie that is what fading black is - a black horse that does bleach in the sun. There are 'true' blacks that don't fade, but I am yet to see one in person lol.

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.

I do lol. Although maybe in the hot Aussie sun even non-fading blacks fade lol.
