  1. Horse Colors and Genetics
    So before I got my horse he was used to breed to a single mare. My horse is a tri-color Tobiano. I used to think he was just a bay tabiano but he also has black on his legs and has dun markings. Well the mare he was bred to was just plain black and white. However, both of their foals looked like...
  2. Horse Colors and Genetics
    My shetland seems to be roaning out. He is around 4 now but since i’ve had him he has gotten lighter and lighter. And now that his winter coat is coming in there’s more white hairs. Especially on his face. It just doesn’t make sense to me because he is already four and if he was a roan wouldn’t...
  3. Horse Colors and Genetics
    This is that paint stallion I have and two babies he has sired were both red roan paints. He has another goal on the way but it will be born next february-march. Now that he has shed I’ve found these “roan” spots. Take in mind i got him in september and he had a winter coat so i haven’t seen...
  4. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    I've trained a few horses but I got my first untouched prospect about 6 months ago now. He was two (3 now) and still a stud,(he's gelded now). It has been a pretty cool experience starting him from scratch. I bought him off a lady who just had him out on a quarter section with a few other studs...
  5. Horse Conformation Queries and Critique
    This is "Bodacious" he is a 3yr old 1/2 percheron 1/2 qh. I quite like the way he looks but just wondering what everyone's thoughts on his conformation are :)

    First off- a tip to parents. If you plan on getting a horse for your child, don't get a foal when they are still a baby. On paper, it sounds good ("aww, they'll grow up together!), but you have no idea what they like (they might think your favorite color is the ugliest thing in the world, ect )...
  7. Horse Colors and Genetics
    So I bought this late yearling(6-6-17) in January and she is registered as a red roan on her papers. Her dad was registered grey but looks more creamy with a red hint. Is there any possibility she could turn that color? She has her full winter wooly coat and it's hard to tell. Her face is creamy...

    This is Ekko, she's ten months old. I apologize for her scruffy looking coat, it's muddy and shedding season. Ekko's dam is a brown roan percheronxsomething. Her sire is a leopard appy. Ekko was born a grulla/silvery colour. She shed out that coat quite quickly and appeared brown with a lighter...
  9. Horses for Sale, Lease, Loan & Wanted
    I am searching for a Grulla or Dun horse. Mainly Grulla, I would like to trade for my Blue Roan Quarter Horse mare. She is not registered, but had the paperwork to do so. Previous owners would not get into contact with me to get it. She is 4 years old, 14.2hh. Very safe, level headed horse. I...
  10. Horse Talk
    Hello, I was wondering if anyone on the forums might be able to guess what colour this little fellow might turn out to be. I'm not bothered by colour, but I am really curious :'D ** ALSO, please excuse his poor condition. I bought him as a rescue as his previous owner had too many horses and...
  11. Horse Talk
    Was just wondering as our newest addition is a little flaxen chestnut with roan fading out of his coat. We believe he'll mature as a solid chestnut with the flaxen mane and tail, as the roan is almost invisible now. His full sister is a solid chestnut and his half sister is a bay roan... So...

    As mentioned in a few other posts, I've recently decided to take in an unhandled yearling as a rescue/project. I was wondering what activities/exercises could benefit him and get him a little more comfortable around people. Looking for a variety of opinions, all answers are helpful <3
  13. Horse Tack, blankets and Equipment Queries
    We've got a new little chestnut roan pony arriving soon. He is too young for riding and is in very bad condition at the moment! (A rescue case mentioned on the 'Horse Care' forum!) I'm looking to buy him a halter before he arrives. I'm a very big fan of colour coordination :'D What colours do...
  14. Grooming, clipping, bathing & equipment used
    I've seen a lot of people around me buying coat-specific shampoos for their horses recently. I was wondering if there are any good ones for buckskins or chestnut roans? I've never bought anything like this before, so also wanting to know if it's really worth it? (We are not a showy family... But...
  15. 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...
  16. 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...
  17. Horse Colors and Genetics
    Hi! So my baby (Kasatka) was born almost two months ago (i don't have very recent pictures of her, but I can get some) Lately her ears and face have started to get black spots (as if she was shedding from a light bay, to black). Her legs are also really light (as were here brothers -a 2013...
  18. Horse Colors and Genetics
    I'm training this gorgeous QH mare and I was going to fill out her information sheet but I'm stumped on what to put down for color. My BEST guess is a Sooty Buckskin Roan?? I apologize in advance about the photos. It has been raining here literally for days so I can't get a good picture outside...
  19. Horse Colors and Genetics
    Has anyone here ever seen a palomino roan? I've looked them up and I heavily believe my mustang is a palomino roan. He looks dark palomino in the summer but yet now that it's getting cooler, his coat has lighter coloring mixed in. I don't really have any pictures of what he looks like right now...
  20. Horse Colors and Genetics
    We have a new horse coming, she has had her feet done and she is in Quarantine now, so we will not have her until later this week. But I am trying to figure out what color she is. At the auction they said Sabino roan? I am trying to guess breed too. So far we have heard, paint, paso fino or...
