Black sock!

So we have a little colt at work who came in on a welfare case, and he just has the cutest little black sock that I just had to share with you guys.

I think it's just precious, and I don't think they're all that common? The first one I've seen like that that is memorable, though that doesn't mean much considering my memory

So here is the little guy!





Feel free to post if you have your own black socks!

We have (had? Not sure if they still board at my barn) a chestnut at my barn who has a black sock. His is a somatic mutation, though.

I would love to, but his case is still going through prosecution so I'm slightly hesitant to put up full photos of him just yet! Also can't see much of his face as he has to wear a guardian mask right now due to some pretty severe uveitis, so he kind looks like a giant black and white fluffy bumblebee

Wow, unless I'm mistaken that is pretty rare! From my understanding, it is pretty much an unwritten rule that tobianos always have 4 white socks. In this guy's case it almost looks like the color was meant to be higher up on his leg and it "slipped" down. Very cool! Very different!

*photo update!!*

I know a few of you guys were eager to see proper photos of this handsome man, and I'm happy to say that his case has now gone through court so I can do so!

He kinda looks like he dipped his foot in an inkwell then wiped his nose on it

I personally think he's gorgeous even with two blue eyes (not a personal favourite of mine)
