Lola is Bay!

Her face is getting lighter now from the sun =D I cannot wait until she gets lighter..

But I was thinking today..Why does the sun makes horses lighter but it makes us darker? Hmmm lol

It makes your hair lighter too, not just your horse's. It makes your skin darker because (if I remember correctly) the UV rays cause your body to produce more vitamin D, which creates more pigment cells in your skin. Hence, a tan!

Those are some cute horses. I think mine will shed out brown this year. I hope it is a nice dapple brown like it was two years ago.

Gambit is just starting to shed, and he is coming in dark bay instead of black, I'll have to get some pic tomorrow.

It has been getting really hot and humid here so both my horses are shedding a lot now. The birds will have really warm nest this coming winter. It is really neat though because it is the opposite of last year. Last year I brushed out brown hairs to find black hair, this year I am brushing out black hair to find brown hair. I will have to take new pictures, but first I have to remember to charge my battery.

My mare is chestnut sabino; four white socks, blaze, and some roaning (not normal 'roan'...roaning associated with her being sabino)...she also has a few more bird catcher spots this spring...gotta get some new pics.
