Yay new pictures!! Ignore the white blob on his forehead! He was born with some growth looking thing. And I asked all kinds of vets and old cowboys and NO ONE knew what it was even the vet said he was going to be a unicorn lol but they all suggest it could be a wart so i've been putting some Compound W on it and it seems to be slowly layering off. So I guess he was born with a giant wart on his head lol
Ahaha! His color throws me though he has 2 full sisters and a full brother. And none have come out even remotely close to this color! The sisters were both palomino and his brother was black I believe and was roaning out. But I don't really see any appy characteristcs on him at all. He has no white hooves so I can't tell if they are striped and he doesn't have the mottling on his eyes nose or genitals. So I think he went more like his daddy than his momma = / oh well I love him anyway!
Wow he's shedding out to be such a handsome boy! I'm thinking the wart could possibly be a sarcoid? My mare has one by her mouth (see scamperwoods vixen in my barn for pics) I heard crest toothepaste works! Hoodathunkit?!
My filly Lyric had a baby coat that didn't seem to want to go away. She had her foal coat when she was born...and it didn't want to shed off at all, and she went almost straight into her winter coat. (we had a very cool summer last year.) This spring, she's been one of the last to shed her winter coat, so we actually clipped her. When/if she finally sheds out this summer, it will be my first look at her normal coat color.
Here she was last fall:
And after I clipped her (only 1/2 of her that day, lol) at the beginning of May:
I should take new pictures to compare since it's been a month.
