My new buckskin horses :)

Grade paint mare (Willow) and thoroughbred gelding (Dozer). I'll let you figure out which is which ;)

Dozer is about 16.1, 7 years old, and was rescued in May. He's a little green, but I rode him for the first time today and he was good, just distracted and full of energy (fun combination...lol). He's a sooty buckskin I guess, "mud-colored" as someone else said, lol.

Willow is almost 6, about 15 hands. She's got one blue eye and one brown eye. I love her color so much! She's got an issue with buddy-sourness and balking.

Both of these horses sent the last people who rode them (before today) to the hospital. So now, they're mine! :) And they're coming along nicely.

Your gelding is a brown-based buckskin (or "brownskin") rather than bay-based like the mare, which is why he's so dark. He's going to be very pretty when he's all filled out.

The mare is stunning! *grabby hands*

I've never seen a color like his before. It's different! And thank you :)

That mare is quite the looker. She has great conformation. The gelding is also striking, but I prefer the mare.
