Multi colors and coat texture

I have a pintaloosa mare. Prior, I only ever had non-paint colored horses (bay, buckskin, sorrel, etc.,.). There was no detectable texture difference in the colors of their coats. I have notice on some friend's paints that there is a slight difference from the white vs the color to the touch. But, on my mare's coat the white is the extreme of silky soft, and the "blue" areas (multiple shades of black, grey, brown and white) are a shepard puppy texture to both the eye and touch, especially noticable on her winter coat. THis is not true on her face, though.

Just wondered if anyone else has noticed large texture differences between coat colors on any of their horses.

Yes! I have a Clyde X Appy who has a white blanket with black spots. His white hairs are much finer and smoother than the coloured hairs to the point that when he is almost finished shedding or starting to get his winter coat, the black spots stick out like little puffballs because the white hairs lay much flatter. He also has feathers (from the Clyde). His white legs are much more feathery than his one brown/black leg which is much more coarse.

I think the darker hair shafts are a bit 'plumper' because they carry more pigment. Once my guy sheds out, the mid summer sun lightens his dark grey roan coat to almost a light flea-bitten grey and his coat becomes much smoother overall.

You must post pics of your pintaloosa!

Interesting combo (appy clyde). Very pretty.

Hmmm, maybe its the appy and not the paint! Her black spots tend to "stick up", too.
I am terrible at photo taking, it is demoralizing. You would think you just aim and shoot!!! I have a few (not so good) photos in my "barn". I will try and "snap" more.:)
