Phoenix came to me as a rising four year old, she is now rising seven. Every summer that I have had her I have been sure that her coat has been progressively dappling up. And this year my hopes and dreams have been rewarded. I love dapples, for me personally, they are the most striking feature a horse can have. I have wondered if my love of dapples has made me imagine the hint of them on Phoenix. But this year I have validation! Phoenix has dapples!
Her dapples are magic dapples they appear and disappear, sometimes they are really striking and sometimes they vanish. I love it, it's all part of the Phoenny mystique.
Here are some pics of the fabulous disappearing, reappearing dapples.
