She's really cute! :)

As for her color (I'm no expert), she just looks like your standard blue roan, maybe sabino with splash (I have no idea about paint characteristics but she looks like others that I've heard described as sabino with splash), paint.


Also, forgive me if this is rude to ask (feel free to ignore it if so), but I was wondering why you keep getting such young horses if you want a really broke one? I would have thought one that was 9-12 would probably be a better bet, while still relatively young... I don't know though, of course. :)

I use Kensington Catch Masks, they work GREAT for shielding white faces and pink noses. You can use people sunscreen or horsey sunscreen or diaper rash ointment or plain zinc oxide. I have found with the full face catch mask that it's heavy enough I don't need to use the sunscreen.

Her color looks like a blue roan to me, but I'm not great on that part so don't hold me to it. Her pattern looks to be overo, I don's see any white going over her withers.

That's not rude, it's a good question. My first two horses were completely unbroke and I just realized I wasn't having any fun with them. I thought I would, but I'm just not a green horse person. It's really the green part, not the young part.

This horse is young but she is very well trained. I did my research on her. A 5 year old boy and an 11 year old girl rode her. She lived in the city where there are only roads to ride on but before that she had miles and miles of trail rides put on her in several different states. Her owner liked to travel with her and was big on exposing her to anything and everything he could think of.

I really want to use her as my barrel horse, so I'm glad she's got quite a few years to learn and then hopefully be that for me.

Id say she's a blue roan, sabino??? I could be wrong tho. And sun screen always works on my horses.

I am definitely going to get her a fly mask with the nose piece but wow are they expensive. Compared to the $12 fly masks I'm used to anyway.
Idlepastures, I think that was the cheapest one I've seen so far.

I'm thinking blue roan sabino too after looking at some pictures.

Thats why I posted it :) LOL. Cause they are very very expensive most of the time. SS Tack has some of the cheapest I've seen. I'm sure if you're crafty, and can sew, you can probably make one yourself to attach to an already excising fly mask.

The Kensinton's ARE expensive but they also are the only ones to have a 2 year replacement guarantee and reallllly sturdy. That's why I switched, I buy 1 Kensington to 4 or 5 of the cheaper ones, which I still buy for those who just need a fly mask not sun protection.

I use Skiing sun cream on Reeco's nose. It is about factor 50 and has double the amount of YV protection of normal suncream. He has never yet had a burnt nose!

Be sure to have the fly mask on all the time. My horses eye got sunburned before I bought her because the owners left it off for a couple of days and I've had her for about 3 months and I'm still trying to get that thing to heal

Anyway, I use this flymask and it has like 70% UV protection..
