has anyone had a horse that does a 100% color change in the winter?
 
My Tovero Dunskin paint stud is medicine cap with crystal blue eyes and in the summer he turns the beautiful buckskin color with chocolate mixed in, but in the winter he turns a steel blue/gray and his chocolate mane turns almost black with streaks of peachy/pink. The colder it gets the darker blue or charcoal color he gets. Can anyone please tell me if they have had this type of horse color change before? My colts sire is a Trakehner palomino with overcoat of chocolate and his dam is a medium to light colored dorsal striped dun old foundation qh mare (she also has zebra striped dark brown legs/tail/mane)...thanks so much for any info or responses...:-)

I haven't seen any horses like that in person but I have heard of a few. It's usually the ones that already have really cool coats, that change colors. I'm sure one of the genetics gurus on here can tell you why he does that. But I would love to see some pictures of him!

He looks like a gray and white blue eyed paint in winter and summer is the light dunskin paint with blue eyes and chocolate tail/mane...even my landlord was like oh you got rid of your dunskin for a gray/white last winter...why?? Told her it was same horse...lol she always laughs...
