Looks like a black appy who fades when left in the pasture ;) But I could be wrong its kind of hard to tell in the indoor pictures ;)

Gorgeous girl BTW!

But it has a mealy muzzle, blacks don't...I'd say it's a Brown, or what is lovingly referred to on HF as "Bad Ass Brown." They can get dark like a black but the muzzle stays a mealy brown color... the outdoor pic def shows a mealy muzzle.

kjr5 - you can't tell that from these pictures. These are not pictures I would use to determine base color. White pattern? Possibly, but not base color.

In blacks that fade (my horse is a fading black) the legs usually stay black too, especially near the hooves...I see brown there in the pics... I still say "bad ass brown"
