You know, the more I think about it, the more I think she already does shine a bit and I'm just being paranoid Here's a photo taken last night, indoors in low light where a horse would be least likely to shine, and she does kinda look shiny, even with her fuzzy (partly trace clipped) winter coat!

What do you guys think?? Tomorrow I'll go outside in the sun and get some pics of her, it should be easier to see then. I think the fact that her color is fading is throwing me off...she was this golden buckskin tone the first summer I got her and now she's a "buttermilk" buckskin shade.

HEY BUCKSKIN OWNERS out there, have you noticed that as yours aged, they have changed colors and/or faded a bit?

Hmm might just be her winter coat too...this was her just a few months ago before the winter coat grew in!

Another one from last summer...I think I'm just second guessing myself because there are some lucky horsies in our barn who grew in practically NO winter coat this year and are super sleek and shiny looking!!

Oh, are you kiding me!!! She is an awsome horse, so she doesn't shine in some photos. I would trade my shiny boy for your awsome, talented mount any day of the week. I have been secretly envious of your girl since I first saw her. If it hadn't been for the fact that she was a girl, she would be missing from your barn and in mine as we speak. No girls allowed in my barn.
