Sun fadded black

A horse which stops dead just before a jump and thus propels its rider into a graceful arc provides a splendid excuse for general merriment.

Agree on the faded black. A liver chestnut horse will get lighter the closer you get to their hooves.

Here is an example of a true liver chestnut horse

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

thanks heaps for your responses. I would agree with the sun faded black, except for one thing. her coat under her main where the sun doesn't reach is not black. It's not as light as the rest of her coat, but it's definitely not black. And this area hasn't been exposed to the sun since her summer coat came through. so yeah? not sure...

Probably just a brown then.

smrobs, I would call that horse a Seal Brown.

The OP's pony, I would call a dark bay or just brown. My mini, Chocolate, is the same color.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.
