I need some help figuring out what color my boy is. I purchased my quarter horse Brodie last year. He is 13 years old. According to his coggins he is a dun but, I just don't think that is accurate. He is a beautiful boy and I fell in love with him the the moment I seen him. His color is just so different. I just don't know what to tell people when they ask me what his color is called. He has a mostly silver mane and tail with some darker streaks in it..he is a chocolate color with some dappling under his coat. In the winter he is lighter. Summer he is darker. You can see the dappling in the summer better. He has some silver hairs through out his coat if you look close. I'm just confused at this point.
Hello About 4-5 months ago i got a QH jumper. 10 years old, Insane amount of scope and stubborn as a mule. In the past 3 or so weeks every time i put him in the cross ties to groom/tack up, he pins his ears back, paws and stomps and on a few occasion tried to kick me when ever I have tried to get a brush anywhere near his Barrel and hindquarters. he loves getting groomed from his shoulders up. I know this often is the case with OTTB's, not wanting to be touched and having super sensitive skin, being as we have a few at my barn, but he hasn't always acted like this. it has gotten to the point where i don't even want to attempt to get near his hind quarters. He has been doing this when we take him to shows too, so its not limited to home. Any advice as to why he's started doing this or how to stop it is greatly appreciated. Thank You. EDIT: My trainer has checked him out and it didn't seem like he was back sore or anything. he moves fine and is jumping like a dream, no signs of pain. He is fine after I ride him and doesn't mine me brushing or using a curry on his hindquarters. In general he is a somewhat hot, energetic horse.
