Just thought I'd share some pictures of a few horses I've owned (and currently own in the case of one)...just because they are pretty spiffy to look at (in my opinion anyway..haha)
First up...the 2nd half of my first horse. I bought a nearly solid black TWH mare shortly after my 21st birthday, she was already bred at the time. This guy was the reason I became interested in color genetics. We were told the stallion she was bred to was palomino..heck, I even rode him! But I was clueless. I was hoping for a buckskin filly...or a filly of any color to be honest.
I ended up with what I thought was an orangey chestnut colt with blue eyes..ahaha. Then the pink skin never went away...
As a 2 year old
All grown up
He was tested as no creme, and with the pink skin and freckles, and the eyes that went from ice blue to green to amber--pretty certain he was champagne. We did let the owner of the stallion know, and he thanked us and was able to get his boy's color changed with the registry.
