Thank you for posting the pictures BluMagic. I appreciate it!

Thank you for all of your comments...I too like her shade of bay. It is commonly known as 'red bay'... or perhaps better known as 'blood bay'.

I feed her 'paprika' in the later winter months to start to 'prime' her spring coat. She also gets flaxseed. By springtime, she sheds her winter coat very quickly and has the prettiest 'purple/red coat.

However, if I let it, the summer sun quickly bleaches out her color. I usually flysheet her in the summer though.

You may or may have not heard...paprika is great at adding and darkening hair color. It's proven well for me and as you can see from the picture below...Rosie really likes it!!!

She'll be 23 this coming May. Yes, she is very old for a draft horse but you would never know it from her attitude. She 'loves' to trot and canter and 'go places'. She's a goof ball. :)

I hope to show her in the National Western Stock show in 09, it's to late this year. But, no, I have never shown her. She was a carriage horse before I got her and I believe she was shown quite a bit when she was younger.
