I want to upload some pictures of my gelding, Roux, to see what people thought of his pattern, color and maybe if they think he has some mustang in him. He has no papers and I wouldn't have him tested (because it doesn't matter anyway) I am just curious!
He has one brown eye and one blue eye. He has a light color mane and tail that are a gingery color. (That is why I named him Roux because it means red hair.)
He has two white hooves and two black hooves. He has two white socks (on the same side) and two brown. He has no primitive markings on his legs and no dorsal stripe.
The white does cross his neck and he has a white stripe about 2 inches wide in his mane, that is the only place where the white crosses.
On a side note, I believe that he is at least part Mustang. First, mustangs are not uncommon where I live. Physical characteristics that remind me of a mustang are his thick wavy mane, his short back?, huge wide head, curved butt, and low tail. His hooves will also never need shoes, they are hard, wide and require very little maintenance. He is about 15.1hh.
More importantly his personality and quirks are so similar to a mustang I trained a few years ago. I could go on and on but I will just point out that he is the most alert horse on the trail and will tell you about another horse, dog or person long before you can see or hear them. And he reacts (spooks) like a mustang, if you know what I mean
. His gaits are also identical to the mustang I rode in the past especially his canter.
