Looks like sun-bleached is beating out brown. Who knows? :)

He is not the same one as my avatar. She was definitely black.

As far as his weight goes - yes, I agree he is a bit under.
The first photo was taken long before he was mine.
The second photo is the more recent of the two, and it makes him look much more angular than he really is.
He was borderline when we got him, and dropped off some after arriving (stress, diet change, what have you).
He has been gaining steadily and should be back to normal very soon.

Here is sun bleached black like your horse. This horse is 100% for certain black. Notice the color is similar to your horse.

Same horse with sweat fading down the flank and sides.

These horses have brown based agouti. Notice the cinnamon color that is slightly different than sun fading and is restricted to the soft parts of the horse. This coloring in the soft places is often pretty noticeable even when brown horses sun fade.
