Thank you!
He is buckskin. They visually look a lot like palominos but with black points, manes, and tails. Also like Palos, there is quite a range of gold from pale to deep gold.

And yes, mud somehow seems so much darker and dirtier on a light colored horse! LOL
Shape... yep no mistaking the near non-existent back. Make saddle fitting so much fun!
You know, now that you mention it I haven't seen another palo or buckskin Rocky either. Just the chocolates (beautiful!) or bays and chestnuts. And I can certainly say I have Never seen a striped one before!

Maybe this year you could do a skeleton, but in black and put his hair up in a mowhawk. Tell everyone it is a reverse x-ray, or that he stuck his hoof in a light socket.

I love buckskins!! I have always wanted a horse with that coloration. Sometimes he gets so muddy he looks like his half brother lol My first saddle for him did not shape to him at all, but now I have a Synergist and I love it! Those are the only Rockies I've seen myself. We just have a couple of unique, amazing Rockies That is an awesome idea! I was gonna make him look like pegasus but I just don't have the time to make the wings Someone said I should dress up as the Lone Ranger.
