What is the Difference?

We only have three colours of horses in our fields – orange, black and off-yellow.

Today is Orange.

So how do I tell the difference, I hear you ask?

First up is Kappi. He has no white markings and is pure orange (chestnut for the purists amongst you).

Then there is Efstur.  He is a slight darker orange to Kappi and he has a white crescent or irregular star on his forehead. It is so you know where his miniscule brain is!

And lastly, but by no means leastly, we have Klængur who is a very red-orange. He has a white star on his forehead and snip on his nose.

And they are all very different in character, so even if the wrong orange one was caught, you would soon know when you got on.

(and, yes, I had to go and look up horse facial markings because I actually had no idea what any of them were offishully called!)

    Frances, thank you for the color coat tutorial. Now I can tell the fellows apart.
    Hope you all are safe and sound. Any word from the girls? have they reached their new home?
    How is Daisy? has she had an uneventful recovery from COVID? I know she misses being at home with the equines, ovines, canines and of course the one and only canine 😉
    Best wishes,
