    Yearling color question sun bleached or lightening up?

    So this is Bullet he's Kiger Mustang and Standardbred, I know odd combination, but his dam the mustang was buckskin and his sire the standardbred was black. He was born black and is starting to lighten up not sure if he's just sun bleached or not. Would like to know your opinion.

    Him in the sun.

    1 cream + 1 black = smoky black.

    He could either be a smoky black or just a fading black, depending on whether he inherited the cream gene from his momma.

    Unfortunately, the only way to know for certain is to have him tested for cream. He is certainly a black base though.

    The only way to prove he is smokey black is by testing him for the cream gene. Looking at a horse won't tell you that answer.

    I have a black filly that is about as sun-bleached as him.

    I also have a mare that is brown that looked like him until she REALLY faded. So...Black, Brown, Smokey Black. You'd have to test for them to know for sure at this point.

    Do you have any winter pictures of him? Or foal pictures?

    By four months their foal coat is shed out. I was curious if you had pictures from birth-2 months old before they shed that coat.

    That picture doesn't help me to make up my mind. Hopefully Chiilaa/NDAppy chime in.

    Black or smokey black. The only way to tell is to test for cream as a single cream cannot dilute black.
