Is he black..cont'd (with more pics as requested)
 
I took a couple more pics today, they aren't the greatest, but someone asked for more photo's of his head.

He is standing in full sunlight in this pic.

I say black. Browns have a mealy muzzle. He's probably just a fading black because he didn't look brown in the other pictures either.

Black & beautiful! Like Poseidon said, brown horses have brown muzzles & highlights around their eyes & underbellies.

Black with blacker points.

Thank you guys. I just figured he was brown, but cool, black it is. :)

Black, black, black! 8D

True blacks are more of a inky 'blue black' color. Fading blacks are more of a 'regular' black shade.

Hmmmm. I'm not convinced he is black. Nor am I convinced that he is brown. Do you have any other head shots?

What other colors are you thinking ND?

It's between black and brown. I was thinking black with his other pictures, but around his muzzle is giving me the impression or a really, really dark brown. :-) Does that make sense?

WickedNag 03-03-2011 08:32 AM

Yep it does :) It can be really hard to tell on some horses. I was just curious if there was going to be something else thrown in the mix
