I don't know how you keep him so clean! DJ has a lot of white on him. It seems like around here, the more white a horse has on him, the more he likes to roll in the mud!

Oh please dont let those pics fool you.I spent an hour yesterday kocking off mud and un cakeing plastered on mud off his feet.he looked like a pig.You could barly see white...And Of course after i took the pics and released him he went straight for a mud whole but at leaste I got some

So dont feel bad I dont keep him clean.He is a mud hound.There is a tb in the pasture that you will never see mud on.He is the cleanest horse as soon as it starts to rain he heads right for the barn.Diego will stand out in and then warler in it

I know a lot of paints/pintos that have those spots. Its just part of there markings/coloring. Nothing appy. =) Your boy is very pretty though!!!

Spots and dots are common in Paints. Sometimes they mean they're homozygous for the spotting gene - especially if they're in a 'puppy paw' pattern

Your horse is very cute.
