    What color is my filly?

    What color would you say my filly Belle is? She was registered as a sorrel, because that's what color she was when she was younger. But her reddish brown mane turned flaxen when she was 2 years old. Now it has turned white as a 3 year old. Is she a palomino? I don't feel that her body is a light...

    Foal Color

    My weanling Luna was born a sorrel, but is now getting more and white hairs in her coat. Does this mean that she could be changing color? I know that some people say its like opening a present the next spring because they change color so much. If she is changing color, what color could she...

    If a horse has white hairs throughout their coat, will they go grey?

    Ok, I bought this pretty little girl two years ago. Her papers, and coggins labeled her as black. She can be black or bay depending on the time of year. Today as I was grooming her, I noticed a bunch of white hairs throughout her coat. A few days ago, while reading through a thread, cannot...

    Clipping vs. Shedding naturally to determine color?

    I clipped my yearling, and now I'm wondering if I should have waited for a natural shed. It's been grossly hot and I knew he was suffering but I have a dilemma. I can't figure out what color he is and I would like to send in his papers soon. He has a lot of gray hairs in his coat, but is...

But my boy will be 3 years next year and still not even close to have a black sock. He has 3 white hoofs and socks but one black hoof and that leg is beige/gay at color...

    Potbelly, Color, Registration newbie questions :)

    It's been 3 weeks since the accident and my little girl has recovered SO WELL! I'm so glad as the vet had no idea if she would, he flat out told me that if she had hurt her abdominal wall, it would most likely be fatal. After the first day fever scare, she got better every day and is now all...

    Okay, I know I am not posting a video, but I am looking for a good set of videos on youtube, a website, a facebook post or something online of the show classes. I have no idea what they are looking for and reading through the AMHA rule book is making me really confused. I need to see it in...
