To answer the first part of that; no in the winter she is more black than anything else. But when you look at the picture above you will see some lighter hair around the coronet, fetlocks, and pastern of the front legs, and up the cannon bone of the rear legs. Not to mention all the dappling.
In the winter there is no dappling, and all that blonde is black.
I've seen pictures of when she was young, yearling I believe, and she looked to be Haflinger coloured. She was not dark at all. I know nothing about her sire or dam other than their breeds.
While her body colour hasn't changed much since 2009 to 2011 her mane colour is changing. There is much more silver in her mane today then there has ever been.
So what colour do you guys think she is? Do you think she'll change colours again?
