Thanks for the headsup on that old thread. The consensus is: some do and some don't and some lighten as they age!Munchkin is a lot more golden than my friend's palamino filly. Hers is almost white and she is hoping hers will darken.
There is an interesting thread on here from 2008 titled:
Do palominos get darker with age?
My horse thinks tiny flies are vampire bats. Not sure he could handle Jurassic flies. I hate the smell of smoke; when we were so dry here several years ago with many grass fires around, the smell of smoke always made us anxious. I didn't know there were fires inn Canada.1/2 mile with Tinker and 1/2 mile with DD. We’ve not been hiking the past few weeks and it feels good to hit the road. No rain, very hazy due to smoke moving down from Canada, and some huge annoying horse flies! I think they escaped from Jurassic Park!
Congrats on Midnight's weight drop.1 1/2 hour today as we went to the elevator for weighing. Dapper Dan was the same but Midnight was down. Yay!
My sister takes her big horse, Winslow, along as she is monitoring his weight per vet instruction. Usually he walks along quietly with her miniature mare, Jackie O. Today he bit Jackie (!) and by some mysterious body language totally scared her. She would not walk beside him. Finally, Munchkin's owner took Jackie and she walked fine with Munchkin. If we tried to put those two close to each other, Jackie was too scared of Winslow. We were all mystified at what had happened to cause this, as Jackie and Winslow are not penned together and only see each other on our walks. We humans could not really perceive any significant threatening body language from Winslow. But Jackie did.
My two were their usual ornery selves, but settled down and did fine.
