Today I was thinking about Half Pint's color. I don't know if I have told you on this blog yet, but Half Pint was considered a bay for all of her life. But when she came to us we realized that she wasn't a bay at all.
She has a dorsal stripe and a little striping on her legs. her muzzle and around her eye's are a cream-yellow color.
But she was still considered a bay-ish horse. The AMHA (American Miniature Horse Association) couldn't figure out her true color.
(two pictures of her sister, Paintbrush Chili Pepper).
So, Mrs. June and I think that she is a dun of some sort. I spent a lot of time researching horses with the dun color. But, today I think I hit a home run. I searched "Buckskin Dun" online.
.....These look more like her color than these one below..
..But I guess that we will have to wait and see till the rest of her winter undercoat foals out and is replaced with her summer one!
HORSE OF THE WEEK
P.S. What kind of color do you think she is?
