A Study in Palomino

Palomino horses hold a special mystique, probably because they aren’t as common as the other colours of Equus. In a world dominated by bays, chestnuts, blacks and greys, the golden boy of the equine world is a rare and splendid thing.

Remember Roy Rogers and his beautiful palomino horse, Trigger?

Last spring this young gelding stayed at the farm for a couple of months, and while he was there I managed to spend a little time studying him. Herewith some of the fruits of my labours.

Please enjoy …

  1. A very beautiful horse. I’ve always loved the palomino color, especially the deep yellowish color like this one.

  2. Lovely shots, and you tapped into something common to horse-crazy girls, I think: don’t we all have those fantasy horses or ponies from our childhood…?! Mine was black with a white mane and tail, more or less non-existent, but that didn’t stop me from imagining he’d show up at my door sometime. πŸ™‚

    • Thanks for visiting and for your comment, Marie-Lynn. Yes, we never forget our fantasy horses. Maybe you’ll meet yours one day … might take some genetic engineering, but these days you just never know. πŸ˜‰ … Be well, Dorothy πŸ™‚
