For some reason all of my pictures turned out horrible today. They were overexposed and grainy. I must have bumped some setting on the camera or maybe it was just the craptastic lighting. Whatever. Rocky and Chrome are cute enough it doesn't matter. :D The above picture shows how far away Mr. Obsession finally went to graze.
Now Rocky is the one obsessing haha. That lasted ten seconds.
He's so handsome!
Chrome finally spotted me and headed in my direction.
He stopped to say hi to Rocky for about thirty seconds...
...and then came to see me. :D
Back to nibbling on Rocky's face. Rocky didn't strike out today that I saw.
Rocky sneaking a sniff while Chrome is distracted with me. :)
Don't worry handsome, you're still my favorite!
Notice the photobomb behind him?
Smile!!! More ear photobomb too hehe.
What are you looking at??
Rocky isn't really much of an affectionate horse, but with apple (from our tree) bribes he is coming to see us now. He still plays hard to catch when we try to halter him though...
Here are some pictures of his cute markings!
His snip/stripe is so cute!! That's as high as it goes. No star at all. :)
Black whiskers and white whiskers!! Also white and mottled lips. :)
Does anyone know what the white ticking is from? Is it minimal Sabino?
More ticking. Hard to see because of the shine.
He has some white in his mane right above here
too but the pictures came out too blurry.
You can sort of see the white in the underside and bottom of his tail.
His hind hooves. It shows how the inside rear half
of his left hind is white. There is also a stripe of white on
the front of his right hind. The rest of his hooves are black
because of the many ermine spots he has.
Front hooves. Tons of ermine spots. Black hooves. :D
Also what causes the white to show in his eyes? I thought that was an Appaloosa trait?? Do Paints/pintos have it too? Can minimal Sabino cause that?
Anyway he is a very unique, beautiful horse. I've never been a fan of Paints/pintos, but solid Paints/pintos are gorgeous, especially black ones with dark hooves like Rocky hehe. I took pictures of all of his whorls and everything too for identification purposes. I always take pictures of all identifying marks on my horses and keep them up to date in case they are stolen. I'm probably getting them microchipped soon too. :)
Chrome is a lot calmer today. He's not obsessing as much and he hasn't goofed off any. He just nibbles Rocky's nose any time he'll come to the fence. They seem to be adjusting really well. Rocky is doing well with the move. His poop is a little soft, but I attribute that to the grass and the Quest Plus I gave him yesterday. He's eating, peeing, pooping and drinking great. :) I think he's already bored with the round pen though so I'll probably take him for a walk tomorrow, just to give him something to do. I also need to find and bleach all of Faran's old brushes so Rocky has his own grooming equipment. I love that I haven't groomed him at all and he looks so clean and pretty lol. Fingers crossed it doesn't rain tomorrow so I can play with the horses!!
