Thanks for replying Piaffe, I really appreciate it.
I raised this boy from a foal so to me he is perfect. But, I've always wondered how he looked to someone who has the eye for horse conformation.
I had him DNA tested through UC Davis last year and he is black and does not carry silver, gray (his dam is gray) or cream. His tail has always been lighter like that, he's always had silver/light hairs mixed in his mane and he's always had small white specks in his coat. He's cute isn't he?
I attached two pictures of him when he was younger.
