I've heard and seen people give their black horses paprika to bring back the black color and it actually works! I haven't tried It because I have a shed for the horses when out and my black gelding isn't sunbleached anymore. I don't know how good it is for the horses but people have tried it and it works.

My wife's black horse is a breed stock paint. He is black in summer, but grows a brown under coat in winter that makes him look bay in the spring until he gets she'd out. No bleaching though, and we are very careful with his nutrition.

My guess is this horse is not actually black. If the coat is genuinely brown and growing in that way.
