Maybe that has something to do with the minerals in the rocks and dirt where you live.Your horse could be getting extra stuff from the ground.....just a guess.

Stud? His conformation is not stud quality. He'll make a nice looking gelding, but from the pictures, not a stud. I'm sure you already know but keeping a stud should be done based on conformation as well as tempermant.

There's no such thing as "true" black. Black can be either fading or non-fading, neither one makes them any more or any less "black". Genetically they are still black. Non-fading black is quite a bit more rare then fading black, which gives us the horses that sunbleach.

I don't understand how you can know he's homozygous for black and yet not KNOW if he's black. He can't be homozygous for black if he ISN'T black, so if he IS homozygous, then he's obviously black. Two black and white parents don't automatically make a foal homozygous for black. ROFL. That was a mouthful.

If his parents truly were black, then the only color he could possibly be is black. The only other possibility would be chestnut, which he obviously isn't.

Fading doesn't mean anything, my girl is black tobiano and you'd swear she's bay from the color of her flank spots (her head is totally black though and both her parents are also black).

This has a good explanation of fading and non fading too:

Base Horse Coat Colors - Black

ETA: I always thought of the 'true' blacks term used for foals born black with only white on their heads or legs, after looking up this info from your post Miko I see it's fading/non-fading. Which makes sense.

I was told he's homo for black and I have his fathers papers but waiting on the mothers.People arent always honest and of course I wondered if maybe someone was fibbing a little about his genetics.

I know his conformation isnt perfect but he has fantastic bloodlines.I wasnt thinking world class but Im pretty sure he could turn a buck.

Bloodlines look nice on a pedigree but if it doesn't translate down to the actual horse it doesn't really mean much.
