    Foal
    My New Baby!

    Hello!

    I was just really interested in some opinions on my new foal, Spectral Vagabond. He's from my old mare, JR Painted Dixon, and by Billys Missing Blues.

    What do you think? I plan to use him for roping and maybe some fun show level barrels(unless he shows promise in it; then I'll take him to an actually competitive level, too!). He was just born, so I know it's hard to really tell anything, yet.

    I cannot make an official critique, but I do think that your foal is simply adorable. The coloration blend that he got from his parents is beautiful! I hope that you have a roping or barrel horse on your hands in the future <3

    *cough* He's not tricolored. Tricolored is not a thing in horses like it is in dogs.

    He's for sure a cute little buckskin.

    Yes, tricolored is a thing in horses.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tricoloured_(horse)

    P.S. - I didn't make that ad. Otherwise it would be better laid out, have decent font, better grammar, and actually have their names on it. :)

    Tricolored is a term that people who don't know much about horses use, from what I've seen. (CL Ads)

    This horse is a tricolor


    He's a buckskin, and very cute. Good luck with him

    I realize he's buckskin, but tricolor means a presence of three colors. In his case, black(main and tail), buckskin, and white. Why did this become a debate on his color? I'll call him tricolor if I want to, and why does it matter? Not being rude, but I don't see how it changes anything if I call him a tricolor.

    That means just about every horse with white markings is "tricolored." The Icelandic posted above IS one of the very, very few true tricoloreds as he is chestnut, white, and black.

    As for why I brought it up? It's incorrect terminology. Wikipedia is not a valid source of information.

    because he isn't?

    Same as not one of my Haflingers was Palomino, no matter how much I wanted them to be, they are chestnut.

    It is as wrong as calling him black, or purple, he just isn't.

    How does that affect anyone but me? I'm the one buying him. If I call him purple, then he's purple, /to me/. Who cares?
