Xander The Amazing Color Changing Horse!;)
 
So I got my gelding in February, and since then we have gone through quite a bit of color changes! Not sure if this is normal for him or if there was something wonky going on with moving to a new barn twice or with nutrition or whatever. Only time will tell! I am crazy excited to see what color he is next summer!
Just thought I'd post some pictures!

He started out like this, and I was totally in LOVE with his color! He looked mahogany when the sun hit him right!

Then he lightened to this

Then this

Now we are here and I swear hes getting darker by the day!

I supposed it could be some really intense sun bleaching but i dont know...

Just though I'd share :)

Looks like minor sun bleaching to me. He's a beauty!

Yep. Typical brown.

Haha well I guess everyone can tell that I've never owned a brown horse before! I've always had bays and greys :)
And thanks Lins! :)
