From foal to 2 year old
Just thought I'd post a comparison pic of my now 2 year old chestnut horse to his baby pic.
If anyone else has a foal to adult transformation that you probably wouldn't have guessed, please share :)

Very cool liver! Though this baby is only two he will change even more as he ages!

Very nice! Is he buckskin? He seems too golden to be bay. Except his head, which looks bay.

Well he has pangre which lightens his soft points to a golden but mosey color and it does the same to his lower belly. He is odd colored I theorize he is actually brown based (At) I have seen some light colored homozygous browns so I'm wondering if maybe that's what's up with his color. I'm fixing to test him when I get my financial aid. He changes color a lot though I will attribute a little to sun bleaching. He'll start off when he first sheds very chocolate colored. This is him the beginning of the year. Also I do not think he carries cream so he can't be buckskin.

He's pretty interesting. Must be the pangare on his legs making him seem so un-bay.

From weanling to yearling, Lily went from redhead to platinum blonde, and still gets new white hairs on her body! Wondering how much more white hairs she'll get when she's full grown.

I love the rabicano on her and the flaxen!
