what colour is shadow?
Hi! About 8 months ago I bought a 'black' shetland pony which has turned out to be definitely not black, but I'm left being unsure as to what colour she actually is. It wasn't until I took these pictures today that I'm starting to wonder if she's a dark chestnut. any advice would be muchly appreciated :)
These are some pictures i took today
Looks like a liver chestnut.
My bfs father must have the twin of your pony.. its uncanny how alike they are lol he was this exact colour in the summer months (the sun lightens their coat) and then when the winter set in he turned jet black again.. i had a liver chestnut horse once, your pony wouldnt have quite as much ginger/auburn colour but hes not far of... hes just unique :wink:
Isn't that a badass brown??
Liver chestnut =)
Not liver chestnut. Looks like an extremely sunfaded black.
I think sunfaded black as well.
Being an owner of a fading black, I'd say.... it's a fading black. Cinny gets even LIGHTER than that in the summer, but he's def a black. I'm sure your poneh is too.
There are supplements you can give them to keep from fading, they can be a little pricey. The main ingredient that keeps them from fading is Paprika...so I feed Cin about a teaspoon a day. If you show this can give you a false positive on some drug tests though.... In Cin's case, it seems to really work well.
She is black, just sunfaded.
she still could be black my Gelding which is a black and white paint will brown out durning the summer he just went back to black and looks like himself again.
