Tell Me What You Think About This!!!!

Whats up with the color change and what is going to be her real color???? One was taken at 9 months old when she was black and now she is this color at 16 months old....Yes she is is the direct sun all day, but I can't imagine this much fade. She is getting proper nutrition to my knowlege and I have her on new image dark horse which is a coat enhancer for dark horses. Does anyone have any input?

Wasn't there a comic book character named Raven that had red hair? It still suits her.

I would mail off some of her hair and have her tested. It cost between $25 and $40. I would not think bay because of how bleached the lower legs and main and tail are, but I am not sure. I have seen images online of horses that are genetically black and bleached almost as much as she is. . . Googled images for bleached blacks for examples.

Does anyone think this could be a copper deficiency?? I heard that somewhere, but she gets a good premium diet...
