I stopped on my nightly ball-throwing expedition to take a picture of this young buckskin Appaloosa. He is one colorful guy.
He had just finished showing off in the arena, and was strolling around waiting to go back to his pen. Notice the “halos” of lighter color around his golden spots. Those are sometimes called peacock spots, and he’s about as colorful as a peacock, as well as being nicely conformed.
I’ll have to try to catch him in show-off mode, but meanwhile he makes a nice addition to my collection of horse colors.
I was going to add a picture of our new turn-out arena that I took last night, but since they finished it up today, I think I’ll wait and get a finished-up shot. It’s going to be very handy.
