Do true black horses sun bleach?
Is smoky black and fading black the same thing? If not, what's the difference?
For example, my horse is black. During the summer I don't do anything to keep her that way and she bleaches out to look a very dark bay. Would this make her a fading black, or smoky black... Or are they the same? She couldn't be a true black, right? I don't know much about black color genetics, and I'd like to learn more!
Also something I just thought of. I know in middle school it was all the rage to get Peroxide or lemon juice, lather up your hands and streak it through your hair, and then sunbathe - and it would give you "highlights" in your hair. Could I do this with a horse? Because it would be fun to paint a design on Clem's butt and have it bleach lighter.
