lol yup. That's the problem with science - it keeps us on our toes

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.

No they are frosted. Her dam is a buckskin and her sire is a black and white paint.

She's a yearling so she shouldn't be shedding it out anymore.

You wouldn't think that her thin summer coat would still be changing but I guess it is.
