    Thanks for telling me, Indiesaurusrex! I'm admiring it 'cause it looks so neat and tidy AND functional. I'll probably never do it bc I don't clip. My horses get to keep all of their ear hair and funky whiskers since I don't show them, plus they get tons of turnout. They ONLY look a little like this clean when they get a summer bath after a workout in extreme IL summer heat, like we had in July this year when it approached 100 degrees with about 90% humidity--NO rain. (No WONDER we vacation in the mountains!) LOL

    I adore your old man Always. He'd definitely stand out in the hunter ring against all those darn bays.


    Corporal...HITS probably clips because Sandie is in work all year round, and it makes cooling out faster, since there isn't the same amount of hair to get wet.

    You can see the paint in all of them, since they are all tri-colored.
    VelvetSB, , thanks, Yes, That's what I had always heard. It also eliminates heavy winter blanketing, too. I don't know about you but MY blankets gather more dust than get used. Ya just HAVE to get/keep them, just in case.

    Corporal, mine is not a paint. My is a registered Appaloosa. Everyone thinks he is a paint. But his papers say otherwise.

    Everyone calls Buck a QH unless they are told different. I got tired of correcting them, and then having to explain WHY he was a paint. It was just too hard for people's tiny minds to grasp "breeding stock" so I just let people think he's a quarter, lol.

    The only place people did not ask me if he is a paint was at Appaloosa shows. I guess people there assumed that if I was able to show I must have the right papers.

    A truly tricolored Paint is very rare and none of those horses are tricolored. They're buckskin with white socks and facial markings.

    I get this too. Except she is half QH. The only thing that makes her look any different at first glance is her sclera. She always looks terrified because of the amount of white showing. One lady I board with asked why her eyes were like that one time. She didn't know Paints could be solid colored at the time either.

    And almost all of the horses at my barn are QHs that go to AQHA shows all the time. I see the ads for the shows on the bulletin board all the time and go, "sadface. I couldn't with for fun even if I wanted to because Abby's APHA."

    Buck doesn't have a lot of white sclera showing in his eyes, but he does have a lot of blue flecking. That's the only real indicator that he has paint. His full sister though, is a very loud colored chestnut and white.

    Got a question, Hoofprints in the sand: In back of all of those ribbons--congrats, I KNOW that you earned them!--I've noticed what looks like a winter clip? I Always thought it was a good idea, but I've only seen it in a book.
    Yep! It's a trace clip Basically so that it doesn't take me 10 million years to dry her off in the wintertime when we work and she sweats! She grows in a nice thick winter coat so if I didn't trace clip her cooldowns/grooming would take forever and because I work her 4-5 days a week to train, that would cause a lot of uneccesary time spent on drying her fuzzing butt off

    Cowboy's sire is Coosa Lad, and Coosa Lad's dad is Coosa. So in a way they're related :3
    YAY for related bucky-skins! So yours is "Champion halter" bred too eh?? Have you checked out Coosa's website yet? It's pretty cool!
