  2. As a child I had very unrealistic ideas of horses (too much time watching “my friend flicka”, and reading Trixie Beldon books) but yes, they really are beautiful beasts.

    Thanks, wildstorm, for your visit, and for taking the time to comment.

  4. Vimal, that’s just why I liked the third one. The shape of it’s body was not so fine, but the colouring! I haven’t seen a brown horse with such markings before, only greys.

  8. The palomino is lovely up top!

    the third horse down is a colour that’s called chocolate dun. In the summer, its body will be a more golden colour or when it is clipped out.

    The markings on the body are called dapples and show when the horse and the coat are in good health. (unless the horse is a dappled gray, in which case the dapples are present year round)

    A dun horse has black skin, a black mane and tail with black points and a golden body colour. the chocolate dun has a darker coat colour that shows over the golden

  9. Russell, thanks for taking the time to help me out with the correct name for the dappled horse.

    I’ve just been wandering about your site, and you have some very beautiful horses, in some very beautiful countryside! It was a visual feast =)

    Thanks for your visit here,

    Urban Daisy.
