  1. Horse Colors and Genetics
    I have a seven month old colt out of a black overo stud and a dappled bay Appendix mare (yes it was an uh-oh type of breeding). I can't decide if he's going to be a bay or he's just sunbleached black at the moment. He doesn't have fawn or seal points but does have some weird coloring in random...
  2. Movies, Music, and TV
    Hey guys! I have been searching where to find the tv show version of the black stallion.It is called The Adventures of The Black Stallion. I cannot seem to find it anywhere online and amazon is confusing the heck outta me. If anyone knows where to get even just one season or all of them either...
  3. Horse Health
    I bought a black mini mare from a slaughter pen in December and she has free access to hay and I give her a small amount of grain daily since she could stand to use a few lbs. She's looking a little better but has AWFUL dandruff all over. Any ideas to help clear this up? I'm trying to groom...
  4. Horse Colors and Genetics
    So I've noticed that my red dun quarter horse mare, Nifty Anne Bar, or Annie, has a (maybe) weird coloring. The hair that grows on the inside of her tail (sounds weird, but that's the only way I know to describe where it's at) is black! She has red hairs surrounding it, which covers it...
  5. Stallions and Broodmares
    I've thought about the idea of breeding my thoroughbred mare. I've always thought she has wonderful conformation and personality, and her riding her is lovely too. She has an amazing trot and a ton of energy. It would be nice to have a foal from her before she gets old and eventually passes...

  8. Horse Colors and Genetics
    So, I went to look at a horse today that was advertised as black. He looked black in almost all of the sale photos, but in person he had a distinct brown shade to his coat, particularly in lower light. He has pronounced tan/reddish areas in some of his soft spots (noticeable primarily in his...
  9. Horse Colors and Genetics
    Hey! My APHA, solid dun mare just foaled a filly last night out of a Gypsy Vanner Stallion (black tobiano). Just curious about foal color and what it will mostly change to or if it will change at all. Just curious! Happy with the foal of course, but if there's something to be curious about I'm...
  10. Horse Breeds
    I rescued a gelding of about 3 years and his previous owners had no idea what he was and everyone kind of has their own opinion at my barn. I was just wondering if anyone could give me any ideas? Thanks
  11. Hoof Care
    I was checking my horse's feet today and I noticed a black streak on the sole of his left front hoof, which happens to be a club foot: (sorry about the snow, I had a hoof in one hand and my phone in the other :oops:) Not sure if you need a couple conformation shots, but here are a few just in...
  12. New to Horses
    I loan a 14.2hh nine year old black Welsh Section D gelding called Harry. His owners said he was in the same home from birth before they bought him around April 2013. He was a national showjumper but I don't know what his showname was. I'd love to see some photos of him competing - does anyone...
  13. Horse Nutrition
    My pony is a Welsh Section D and he's had laminitus before - a few weeks ago actually. He has restricted grazing but because it's been bad weather there's barely any grass so when he goes out in the morning he has a slice of hay. He also has soaked hay overnight and some chaff in the morning...

Her dam was Grey and her Sire is Grulla. She looks pretty...

  17. Horse Health
    Just wondering, what are the benefits of a white coat vs. a black one in summer? Would a black horse get significantly hotter?
