Anyone Else with Drastic Colour/Pattern Changes?
 
I recently brought home my new Appaloosa mare, Fancy, and when I saw her papers I was floored! She barely looks like the same horse at all, only really her facial and leg markings stayed the same.

I'd love to see other peoples' horses that changed over the years! Especially those appys. (:

She's cute! That's definitely a huge change. Personally I like her better as a grey, but I'm partial to greys so I'm a little biased. (:

She constantly changes throughout the seasons, her coat varnishes all the time :)

Beautiful horses everyone's got! It's beautiful to see how much they change and be like oh my, this looks like a different horse! :P

Is that because she is varnish, right?
I love blanket Appys! I have a 1/2 appy, 1/2 quarterhorse mare, she is a beautiful buttermilk buckskin, but man, I love blankets!
Yours- her varnish over the blanket is beautiful!

Yes i believe that is a reason why, i don't have her papers or anything so with all the research i've done i pretty much call her a liver chestnut varnish roan spotted blanket appaloosa/quarter horse. I might be wrong but this is what i see in her :)
And thank you ;)

I am thinking with that long of a description on her.. let's just call her cute... and mine if you leave her by herself for too long, lol :P
