    I have shown your site to some of my horse friends (as you know what I do for a living) and the comments were all terrific. Basically, they all agreed “what a great site you have going” and I agree. May your success always meet your dreams!

    Thanks Linda,

    I can’t wait to get your pictures up there too.

    Thanks for passing the site around and everyone feel free to leave feedback. I’m always looking for ways to make the site more user friendly.

    Hi Kim,

    It is hard to say of the foal will remain black, a few white hairs could just mean a white marking. Although if the ears are brown you might have yourself a fading black horse.
    Color genetics is not an exact science and sometimes is down to the luck of the draw. As you know just because a foal is black doesn’t mean it will remain that color throughout it’s life. Good luck.

    My Flicka is a non-fading black. She is a 3 yo. filly and her breed is unknown. I am for sure she has Arabian and something eels in her.

    The Grullo or Grulla (male – female) is the ugliest horse I have ever seen, on the other hand the Black Roan / Blue Roan is one the most beautiful I have ever seen.
