Rare Horse Colors You Gotta See!

Horses are all beautiful and there are countless reasons to love the companionship of horses.

Horses are creatures of beauty. Beauty may be in the eyes of the beholder, but horses have inspired artists and poets through the course of history. There’s just something so magical about watching a horse move. Even now, as an adult, despite of having spent years after years around horeses, I am still awed by the sight of a herd of horses galloping through a field - powerful, independent beasts but stunning to view. Incredible! Amazing! They are living art forms that remind us of the natural wonders of the world.

I love horses and I have made the decision to keep horses (you know, it really does change your life – the commitment, the place you live, they type of work you do…) because I love to ride, but it's not the only reason. Truth is even if I didn't ride I would keep horses because I love being around them. Horses relax you and intuitively seem to know what you need. I have come to appreciate this aspect of horses with the passage of time. As a small little girl, horses meant riding and being with my friends. Now they act as natural tranquilizers - their very presence can lower my blood pressure and improve my mood. I simply enjoy watching them do their normal horsey activities - from munching on hay to rolling on their backs in the sandpitt. A true love and appreciation, to say the least.

So from time to time I do like to keep up on my horse news and also browse the internet and see what new photos or postings are up. I came across a site that showcased the different rare coat colourings of horses – and wow, again, absolutely beautiful. It looks like this particular site has compiled a nice collection the horses you probably won’t see at your typical farmer Joe’s neighborhood farm…but boy, are they beautiful. These horses coat colouring are absolutely beautiful…truly extraordinary!

Albino horses are quite a rare find mainly because the pure albino gene is fatal in horses. Normally this results in the horse not developing properly in utero, often resulting in either a still birth or death shortly after birth. White horses on the other hand are not associated with these types of developmental issues however to find what is truly a pure white horse is like searching for a unicorn – next to impossible. Black horses can be considered the same way. Most often black horses are just dark, dark brown horses… and then you have the unique coat coverings of the buckskin or palamino… different hues and shades of a beautiful chestnut coated horse. I personally love silver dapple horses are they are not only rare and unique but just have this special type of exotic look to them. Its quite interesting. So, go on, have a look, and maybe you’ll be inspired like me, feel a little more at ease, or just really appreciate these wonderful creatures for who they are and what they represent.

Time to go back out to the paddocks. Happy browsing.
