WOW!  He is just stunning!!

And I think sometimes the Silver gene does some awesome changes seasonally, and as they grow.  I only had 2 horses with a silver gene here -- appaloosa breeders aren't normally "fond" of the silver gene -- a mare that was a silver bay, and a stallion that was a silver black, but they were color changes for sure.

Thanks Ryan & Diane!

and just 'cuz -

here are pics of Tory - chestnut and white tobiano mare.  She gets an ultra-fine coat in the summer but it's amazing how hairy she gets during the winter.  She is not one who tolerates much grooming and I only tried using clippers with her 1 time.  Since late 2010, she's been all on her own with just "touch up" grooming...

24 September 2010 - 2 weeks after arriving in NC.  Winter coat already coming in heavily - but she came from the mountains on the West Coast of the USA.





LOVE this pic of her.  20 days before Echo born on 10 May, 2013.



She has not shed all the way yet.  Day before Echo born (actually a little over 12 hours).





and that winter coat again.  Look at the fetlocks, pasterns and legs!
