Winter Is Coming...

I spent all spring watching that roan coat fade into strawberry silver.  It was a color transformation like none I had ever seen.  Now, the signs of shorter days and cooler temperatures are undeniable.  Longer guard hairs have started sprouting everywhere...

winter is coming...

But the dead giveaway that makes it real…
red ears!
The Fancy Roan Pony has solid red ears.  *sigh*

but the sun is shining!


  1. Why can't we have a nice cool winter without fuzzy horses? I hate fuzzy horses!

    1. I would love to enjoy a texas winter this year! I don't mind fuzzy horses. And I've always been fascinated by the incredible amount of change the roan colored coat goes through in a year!!
      I am, however, less fond of waiting for really long winter horse coats to dry out after a hard ride on a cold day... This winter's secret weapons? A cooler and an electric hair dryer!! Can you imagine what the Fancy Pony will think of that!? LOL
