RE: [RC] Black is way hotter! - Bob Morris

Ben Green did a study of horse colors as well as of color durability. If you are interested, a review of his work could prove to be worthwhile. Most likely your local library has, or can get, his study.

Subject: RE: [RC] Black is way hotter!


I'm loving all the responses I'm getting, but maybe I should ask the more specific question on my mind: Is a black horse really that much worse off than a bay or a sorrel?

I know that light colors reflect heat. (Give me a LITTLE credit...) What I want to know is if the difference in heat buildup would be enough that, all other things being equal, you'd choose a bay horse over a black.


Insert movie times and more without leaving Hotmail®. See how.
