    I have a 14 year old off the track appendix gelding (Brewer) with some interesting markings. There are white patches of flecked hair throughout his body, concentrated on his haunches and cheek bones. The previous owner said they are birdcatcher spots, but I doubt that. Birdcatcher spots (as far...

    Hello! This is something that's always bothered me with my boy. Since I've gotten him 5 years ago, he's had this weird roan sock on his foot, while the other two hold jagged edges. He's an Arabian. He's got a very jagged blaze. But what the heck is this roaned foot he has??? As you see...

    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...
  4. Horse Conformation Critique
    Hi, I'm new here. What do you think this mare shows potential for? She's a 2 year old 97.7% foundation QH 17.6% Doc Bar. I personally can go into any discipline but what does she look like she'd be good for...

    So I got a 5 year old mare a few months back (approx 6 months ago) and have been trying to figure out what to call her coloring. I'm new to owning my own horse and being around them regularly though I've always had a passion for them. So I'm still trying to figure out all the different names for...

    He is a two year old rescue mustang. He has a dorsal stripe, black mane and tail, white blaze, and a white sock (black above it). No striping.

    Hello! I am writing up a ad for my sweet filly (I rescued her, and I would love to keep her but can't), and I'm not sure if she is a bay marble appaloosa or a bay frost appaloosa. Thoughts?

    Will be APHA colt. Breeding stock. Sire is a red dun AQHA. His sire is dun, some say dunskin(Zans Diamond Dun It), his dam was sorrel. Dam is a black breeding stock APHA. Sire is heterozygous for dun. There was 18.75% chance of grulla, bay, bay dun, and black. Is he a bay or bay dun? He...

    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...

    I'm hoping to get some answers from all of you on here so I don't have to sign-up with another forum! So here's the scoop - I did a red ombre last summer and let it fade out until January and dyed it back to dark brown, my natural color. I am itching to do something with it again and was...
  12. Horse Colors and Genetics
    Hello, I am new to this forum. I noticed the forum on here about horse colors and had to post this girl! I've never been that great with colors or genetics so I was wondering what are some of your opinions about this girl... This is Misty. She is an appendix mare that I trained last year. Her...

    What do guys think of solid horses with no markings! I personally love bays with no marking! They are very handsome! :wink:

    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~!

    So I have an interesting and somewhat controversial topic I'd like some opinion on. For some years now, my primary riding horse has been a bay paint. Like a tobiano painty-paint. Bi-colored hair, silver spot lining, paint all the way. She has won Hunter under saddle and jumping, but I've only...

    8 year old bay tobiano APHA mare, "Easy Bow Tie". I rescued her on May 9th and have recently noticed she has a small blue spot in one of her eyes, and also has a "blue rim"(not sure how to describe it, lol) around her pupil that goes about halfway around. She has "ticking"(I think that's what...

    I've always been pretty good with coat colors but I'm stumped with him and so is everyone at our farm. Even the vet on his coggins just put "brown". The first picture was at the begininng of this summer and the second picture is now. You can tell from the pictures, but he is dappled and he...
  19. Horse Colors and Genetics
    So my friend and I have been having a friendly disagreement about the color of the horse she rides. This horse, an OldenburgxPercheron, is often called roan and she thinks he's roan as well. But he doesn't look roan to me. I don't have a picture of my own to post, but I do have a link to a...

    I couldn't put the picture on the forum I had before so here it is. This is on a quarter horse cross mare. Her colour is Dark seal brown but the leg this is on is mostly black. (hind leg) And no, it isn't a scar. Also does it have a name cause the only leg markings I have heard of are coronets...
