I was playing around this morning with my big camera.
We have all been noticing that Silver looks remarkably like Fivla. Some days, you could almost mistake him for her.
I think it is the shape of his head and his eyes. Definitely the eyes.
I can’t do a “Compare and Contrast” because Fivla was not being particularly helpful today. The grass has appeared so head down and eat!
Anyway, I found this old photo of Fivla…..
And here is one of Silver from today. Sometimes I have to do a double-take.
I was always told Silver would eventually turn white (grey in horsey terms) and every year, his coat has more white in it.
A little known fact, Fivla was completely black when we got her at 6 months old. This is her a few years on with her owner, Flossie (who will now probably kill me for showing this photo!) Possibly 1999. Fivla was 3. Her owner was 4 (awwww!)
It will be fascinating to see just how white Silver will go over the years. His Dad, Zeal of Houlland, did the same thing, I am told.
I love white (ok, grey) ponies. They are from fairy-tales, obviously.
