    I vote Liver Chestnut on Jada. She's the same color as my two youngest, and I consider them Liver Chestnut.

    On ItzKayley's horse, I agree with fading black!

    She looks like a Smoky Black to me! Do you know what her parents are? If either is a buckskin or palomino there is a very good chance she is a Smoky Black. If you don't know this or her breed it would be hard to know for sure as only certain breed have the creme gene. For example Arabians don't but AQHA, APHA, Morgans and some pony breeds do as well as many others. Since she looks like a pony it is possible. Here are some photos of my Smoky black mare who has lighter eyes and burgundy hairs throughout coat most visible in mane/tail, chest,and the fuzzies in ears. As you can see they appear blacker in the shade but in the sunlight the smokyness becomes more obvious. Good luck!

    Tolt, both my two dark liver youngsters, and their fading black mother, all sun bleach much more heavily in the winter than the summer here. I always assumed it was because of all the snow. (Don't know if that has a shred of truth, that was just my ignorant assumption).

    In the Summer she is jet black. In the Winter, she is... This.


    Sorry for the tilty angle.

    ETA Indy, that makes sense. Snow reflects sunlight from below, directing it upwards, where it would not normally shine. I was on a medication for a while where I had to wear sunscreen and sunglasses in the winter due to light sensitivity. It was worse in the winter than it was in the summer. Maybe the reflecting light bleaches some coats?

    He is chocolate both horses are. Choclate meaning brownish colours through the main tail and coat. Its a verry funny pretty colour but not rare

    Dusty, chocolate is not correct. Chocolate is one of the descriptions of a horse carrying silver. None of the horses in to ride the sky's posts have silver and the op's horse may or may not have silver since it is a pony.

    I had the same issue with my new filly when they tried to reg her she was born silver and AQHA has settled on brown I agree.
