Rare Coat Colours...

What are rare coat colours in quarter horses?

Just asking. I think Black is quite rare. Most horses I heard don't sty black, but turn brown or grey.

I have a black filly. Will put up a picture if wanted.

I don't know about rare colors really. In general I'd think double dilutes are relatively uncommon.

A black horse is black. It cannot turn brown, as brown is a completely different genetic color. Many black horses have coats that fade to a brownish color in the sun, but that's normal and it doesn't make the horse any less black.

Okay. I have heard on here that they are. Even if they are born brown, but look black, you can still see them changing colour into the colour they were born. That is what I was meaning.

Then they are brown not black and often you can tell by their foal coat wether they are brown or black. Either way no I don't consider black rare.

Only color at this point I would consider rare in AQHA horses is silver...

I've always been told that a true black horse with no white what so ever is indeed rare.

I have a black QH. I'm know that's not a rare color.

I have never seen a silver QH though.

Does your qh have white or is it purely black with no markings? I've always been told a TRUE black horse with no other markings is rare. Weather it's true or not-who knows. Haha
