I will take precautions to help my horse not fade, but it's not high on my priority list.
HOWEVER, I will be stalling her during the day because she is so dark, she sweats just standing outside now with the sun beating down on her, absolutely no shade, and her coat isn't shed out yet. I don't care if anyone thinks I'm babying my horse. She is my horse and it is my responsibility to care for her to the best of my abilities, the way I believe she should be cared for.
If you are going to teach a horse something and have a good relationship, you don't make him learn it - you let him learn it.
