Horse of a Different Color

Gandy is registered as a red roan quarter horse. She really changes colors throughout the year. Here's an example.

The first photo was at the beginning of summer, she had shed out her winter coat and had her new summer coat...

And in the next photo, she is growing her winter coat, her hair is getting thicker and longer, see how she changes to an almost purple color. And, you can see she's added a few pounds from all the summer grass too...

Does your horse change colors? Post pictures please!

I leased a bay roan brumby. The one that Brookelovesparelli on here now has. He changes from nearly solid Bay in Summer to nearly solid white bum in winter!

From bay to white, wow, that's amazing! Do you have pictures?

I think I have already told you this, but she is soooo pretty.

I had a black and white gelding that would be true black in the winter, and in the summer turn bay. But I think that had to do with the sun bleaching him out.

Lovie is seal bay, kinda like a chocolate brown, and I loved getting her all cleaned up for shows because she actually had dapples and had a lighter underside and she looked so pretty. I was really busy for two weeks and wasn't able to come out, and the last time I went out to see her I was amazed. She is almost black now! It's crazy! When I was on her I felt like I was looking down at a different horse.

Come on now, you must have some pictures to share :)

The really cute thing about Gandy is... she knows she's cute, LOL! She's a big loveable teddy bear, follows me around like a puppy dog, and talks to me constantly with little nickers and neighs. I just love her! (except those certain times when she's in heat really hard and is a total witch, but thankfully those days don't last long and seem to be worse in the early spring!)

She looks like a good ol' liver chestnut to me :-D.

There was a beautiful chestnut at my old barn. He was a pretty copper color in the winter. His summer though was a deep rich liver chestnut. I wish I had pics of him. I just loved his color and he was such a sweetie.
