Black around eye and nose?

Lately I've noticed that Sonny has black around his mouth and wasn't always like that and I'm just curious on if that's normal for him or what. You know how for some arabs they put something around their eyes and stuff to make the black stand out? Well it's exactly like that, yet it's "natural"

Any ideas?

It's just skin :)

It'll go away when he grows his coat back. Both my chestnut and my Justin (not sure what color he is) have it, but I've also seen it on grays, too :)

That's definitely normal for bays! There are lots of bays @ my barn- they all have them pretty much lol.

It's normal. It's a color thing. All bays have it.

I am glad you ask that question, daisy does that also... So they just shed out because it is soo hot??? I guess that makes sense...

Both of my guys are like that this summer too. They are greys.

Yup its normal. Both Domino (my first horse [qhXappy) and Ginger (Tb) had it.

I can't find a picture with Domino having it around his eyes but you can sorta see it around his nose area.

And this one was taken before I sold Ginger. You can deffinitly see it on her. She never had it until she started to shed her winter coat. Then she got it.
