    LOL.

    Ya, the light mane and tail really trip people up. He was sold as a palomino but he technically does have dark points.

    His ear tips are dark brown, his legs are brown and there are brown hairs in his mane/tail. It's the appy patterning that makes the mane/tail light coloured.

    Basically the colour appaloosas have is where the white *isn't* covering. So a black leopard appaloosa is like a black horse wearing a white jump suit with lots of holes in it!

    I want to do a winter portrait session with our horses, so we'll get him cleaned up as much as we can with the cold weather and I'll get some lovely photos of him :)

    Here's one of him in the rain, my friend loves that he has a full mane and tail (her appy isn't so blessed).

    Very pretty. The gelding may get some height to him , he stall has a couple years that get him a tad taller, specially now that he's gelded , both are good looking horses.

    Both are pretty blond Appies. Ryder is pretty cool lookin'
    I see some ridges and some convex shaping on his hooves that make me wonder if he's every had in laminitic type issues.

    I think it's more likely nutritional changes. Sometimes happens between season changes, since we have to switch from grass to hay and back again.

    Also, not having his hooves trimmed ever probably doesn't help, having serious flaring going on. Our farrier said he actually had very healthy hooves despite being very overgrown. They were really hard too... barely anything chipped off, so it must of been a huge relief on his legs having that length removed.
