Leave a mark on me

The other day I hung a fly trap in my barn. Annie thought it was a horse eater. She would look at it, turn in a circle and look at it again. Yalla! had no idea what was so interesting but she obeyed her mother, staying by her side and going in circles too. It didn't take long for Annie to decide it wasn't going to hurt them. She decided to ignore it and went into her stall to eat with little Yalla! right behind her. Now she completely ignores the hanging bag. She is so much calmer than she used to be.


Today, while the horses were out in the field (arena) it rained on them. Then, I saw Yalla! roll for the first time ever! Unfortunately, I couldn't get any pictures but I did notice that the star on her forehead has changed somewhat. Now it looks like someone painted an "F". Look at the next photo. Don't you agree? I guess she's had it for a while but it just looks so prominent now. This is very cool since her name is going to be Kaheema Fantastyka or Fantastyk Kaheema. I haven't decided which way to write it yet.
Here's a head shot of Annie looking at the fly trap from the other day. Isn't she pretty?

Yalla! is so beautiful!! So is Annie. I love Yalla's color and her star! How funny that it is turning out to be an F!! So cool!

Breathe said...

Wow. That totally looks like an F!

They are a wonderful pair.

thanks for visiting, everyone!

CDNCowGirl- That is a good question! I believe Annie is a flea bitten gray. Rose gray is an intermediate color pattern that chestnut horses go through until they reach the final coat colors of "white" or flea bit. She was an iron, or steel, gray when she was younger.
Gray coloring is crazy.
I might just make a post on gray horses. I've owned many!

Annie has a nice shape to her head - slopey and curvy in all the right places. I know you didn't ask for my two cents, but I like Kaheema Fantastyka.

Thanks for the compliments. I always think that Annie's head is a bit long, not as triangular as some Arabians.
I appreciate all input on her name. thanks!
