All four horses are what a non-horse person would call "brown" - well, Miss is brown and white and Dawn has a black mane and tail and black points, but other than that, they're brown.
One of the things I love about spending time around horses - not just my own - is how individual each of them is, including their color and markings. Every horse is unique - color, appearance, behavior, personality, you name it - each of them is him or herself, only.
My four are all brown, but what a richness and complexity is concealed within that word.
Dawn is a bright red bay - in the winter she gets much darker:
There's a tinge of black in the brown, even in the summer.
Pie is a bright chestnut with yellow highlights:
I see him and Red together frequently, and Pie is lighter in color.
Red is a deep rich brown, well red actually - he looks like burnished metal:
Missy's brown is very dark - like chocolate - a lovely color - darker than even Dawn's winter coat but without the black highlights:
I'm full of wonder at the beauty of each individual horse, every day - do you ever feel the same way?
