Sun Bleached?

Breeze is black. My boss thinks she will turn into a totally brown horse because of her faded spots. I didn't think they could change colour, but can they? Can Breeze turn brown in time?

In the picture you can see on her flank and girth area the orange-brown colour. Is this just faded? Her face is black, and almost everywhere else.

Looks like brown not black. The brown in those areas are tell tale of brown.Fading black is more uniform dulling brown fading over much of body those lower body areas actually are usually less faded/more black

There was a matching horse and pony at last weekends show, the both caught my eye.

I personally love that coloring!

Breeze looks brown to me! Think about your hair... if it fades from the sun, where does it fade? In the spots where the sun hits the most, right? On a horse, that would be the topline, not the flank and girth area. Those spots aren't faded, they're just naturally that color, making your horse brown, not black. :)

You crack me up silly girl. How many times have you been told she's black. She's just sun faded. Accept it! The faded areas look splotchy and just don't have something right about them is it the same on both sides?
How's training going by the way?

She is black. She might be a "fading black" but, genetically, she is still black.

She looks really really good in that picture. Do yout have any more pictures of the lovely lady?

Breeze may look black, but genetically she is brown! She doesn't look sun faded at all.

Would you love her any less if she's a different color? No "good" horse is ever a "bad" color.

Better yet, get her tested for agouti and settle the matter once and for all
