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.

Not the way would you be able to guess how much taller she will be by her age now and the picture?

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...
