Question What colour is my cob mare?

I have a Fell X Cob mare, 10 years old. She had a dark chestnut undercoat, but a black overcoat. I want to do in-hand with her, but the black hairs have come away where her saddle patch is, and all you can see is like an 'orange numnah' on her back where her saddle should be.

What colour is this and more importantly, how do I get rid of the orange patch? <-- think this is cute BTW

Thanks!

The photo is pretty bad for judging colour, but from that picture, I would say fading black.

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.

I agree with Chiilaa. There's nothing you can do for the patch that has faded other than waiting for it to grow back. Part of the problem is also bleaching from sweat.

you could always dye the hair to be even but it may go against the breed rule but if not doing breed class you can just make sure it is horse safe

I hope this was a joke and that you were not serious.

I've heard of lots of people dyeing tails and such, not sure that dyeing the body is any sillier

Manes and tails, are quite a bit different, than trying to dye the body, wouldn't you agree?

Certainly, the OP could clip the entire horse, so that everything would look the same. Many to so before an in-hand/halter show, some time before the event.

However, I doubt trying to dye a part of a horse in full coat, would ever be successful. The hair of a horse, is seldom exactly the same from the root to the tip.
