So I had put up pictures of Tungsten a few months back trying to figure out if he is smokey black or fading. A majority of people thought smokey. Now that he is getting his winter coat I wanted to post new pictures. I had already forgotten how light he was!
He is outside 24/7, weather permitting. So what do you think, smokey?
Only real way to tell is to test. There is a friesian that lives in the next town over that gets that pale in the summer...and darker in the winter. I've talked to his owner before, she said he just fades badly--outside in the weather or not.
Yes I know the only way to know would be to get him tested. His dam is cremello and his sire black so he could have the genes. I don't care enough to get him tested but am just curious and do not have enough knowledge.
