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.
There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.
