    Not sure if this is the best place for this thread... I'm about to buy a gorgeous grullo / buckskin and am having a tough time picking a name.

    Eve is a 2008 model pony, between 11.2 and 12 hands tall. I bought her off a guy who had hardly a clue about horses, and I'm dying to know what breed she is. The guy said she was said to have been bred by the amish. She is low-withered, has nice gates, and is very intelligent. :riding:

However, her pony decided that he didn't want to stop today-- resulting in a messy hoppity-pigroot-like action which tipped her forwards in her seat and flipped her...

    I don't have the horse yet, so I don't have any pictures, but I'm just wondering because when I do get him, what color should his tack be? By tack, I mean just stable stuff - halter, lead rope, feed buckets, grooming supplies, etc. I'm just asking on here cause I need some opinions. Thanks~!

    I have a heterozygous grey mare that was bred to a buckskin stallion. By looking at their foal, do you see any signs of it turning grey. She is only a month old, so I know it's a bit early. But I can't quite make up my mind. What do you think? Any info is appreciated.... This is the sire:
