Call him Toby then

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.

Well I've started calling him Black Beauty, he has the star . Toby's good. I swear someone else did reply but then removed their post for some reason, I'm not chatting to myself!

So you can see he really was a red-head once:

It looks like you have a color changing horse like I have! Nutrition and season may very well impact how much "sooty" is expressed on his coat at any given time and you may find him redder at some points and darker at others. Or he may just stay dark. Who knows?

But this horse:



and this horse:



and this horse:



Are all the same horse during his 2 year old year.

All I pay my psychiatrist is cost of feed and hay, and he'll listen to me any day!

Soy, lol!
Cat, he's very unusual! Funny how his legs are so pale. What colour did he end up, or is he still changing?

That was just last year and his coat still looks like that middle picture. Who knows what shedding will bring. And yeah - he always looks like he has 4 socks from a distance but really only has one actual sock. I think he is just a combination of chestnut, flaxen, mealy and sooty and they all just play back and forth on his coat never knowing which modifier will be more pronounced at the time.

I would say that he has pangaré as well cat. That is what is causing the lightness of his legs and his belly.
