    Horse Tests

    It's $25 (plus postage to get it there) for the test. No one can tell you for sure one way or the other if he is carrying cream or not. If you really want to know, pull hair and send it in. Then you will know for sure if he is cream or not.

    Some smokey blacks don't even fade at all and some regular blacks fade like crazy. So you'd have to test.

    No, he's not. Some grullas are similar to his faded color, but a horse must have a dun parent in order to have dun itself. This horse does not. He is either black or smoky black.

    He is outside 24/7, weather permitting. So what do you think, smokey?
    Does he get that light every summer?

    I have a smokey black AQHA mare. Only one summer did she get as light as your gelding. Even has hot as it was this past summer, she didn't go many shades lighter. Her coat is black as coal right now. "grandpa" hairs in her ears are mousey and her mane has a bit of a red tinge on the ends.

    He is 4. I got him in March so this is the first year I have had him. Toward the end of the summer I started spraying him with something that was suppose to help with sun fading and didn't see much of a difference.

    Loyatly you didn't see a difference because at that point the damage was already done to the hair. The antifading stuff doesn't reverse damage.

    That is true. I also used it to prevent damage to his incoming thicker hair.
