Okay. A horse I am looking at adopting is almost pure black with a white stripe, star, snip combo(connected) He is still almost pure black. The rescue got him from an auction. He is the sweetest thing on the face of the earth(I volunteer at the rescue working with horses, dogs, goats, and the chickens)
I absolutely hate the burnt orageish red color that happens when a dark horse is out in the pasture all summer. If he doesn't wear blankets well I will deal with the color but if I can keep him black I would be ecstatic.
1. Would you have to use a fly mask and a sheet with a high neck to keep him black? Or would a normal sheet be fine?
2. Aren't there some "shades" of black that do not fade? If so How would I tell if he is one?
