A horse of a different color



If you recall, this is how Smokey looked 2 months ago. But you may have noticed a change in his parade picture.

He does get smokey in the winter:



Dapples and grullo? Where did my buckskin go? Ah well, he'll be back in the spring. In the meantime, I am appreciating this handsome dark guy.


Maybe he'll be bay by next week - when we're off to New Mexico.



I'm planning a meet up in Santa Fe (or Albuquerque) for dinner on Friday the 22nd after the first clinic day - any NM bloggers who are interested, drop me a line (email me @ wprosapio at gmail dot com)!

BTW: The final post on the concepcion ride is awaiting photos. Hopefully later this week!

My Rosie turns almost caramel colour in the winter. More of the Belgian colour then Percheron... and so far her summer coat this year was almost Black where last year it was Liver Chestnut...

It's definitely interesting to watch then transform season to season

Breathe, He's lovely in any color! BTW, what is the clinic about? Looking forward to hearing about it.

email me. I might be able to meet up for dinner.

Crazy how their colors keep changing, isn't it?

I don't think he's a buckskin. He's a dun. And grullo is a color in the dun family.

I live in New Mexico off on the west side of the state. What clinic are you talking about? They hold so many clinics around the state I can hardly keep up with them all.

Buckskins have a black mane and tail so he must be a dun. He certainly looks like a different horse. I love his red forelock. Give me a buzz. I'd love to meet up with you.

Ha that is crazy. Well, either way, he's beautiful :)

We're seeing that Nigel changes colors with the seasons too.

I wonder if you and Carson are going to bump into each other at that clinic?

Let us know if you come through ABQ.

two horses, maybe 3 for the price of one!
