Well Considering black is one of the simplest base colors, I wouldn't consider it rare.
When I hear rare horse color, I think of Champagnes, Double Dilutes like Perlino or Cremello..... hmm all I can think of right now, but of course like said before the unbreedable colors like Brindle, Chimera.. etc.

How about a triple dilute?

Tested amber cream dun champagne with tobiano and frame. 5 "color" genes in one.

I don't think I'd count that colt as rare. Champagne is uncommon, but the others aren't. His color also wouldn't be hard to obtain with selective color breeding. shrug. His entire color isn't accessible in QHs anyway because of tobiano.

I guess it depends on what a persons definition of rare is. It's not rare in that it's attainable but rare in a way that it would be somewhat difficult getting all in one. Now if he had roan tossed in with it...that'd be cool I think lol

Black is extremely rare!!! It's hard to find a truly black full grown. Horse. a black horse means they have not ONE white hair on them.

My boy is black but he does have two scars with white hairs , maybe that's why it's hard to find an adult horse that is solid black? What horse doesn't have a scar or two?
